Court Fees Rise Steeply Court fees are set to increase by 60% and the fee you will have to pay for serving a Section 8 notice and accelerated Section 21 notice is going up from £175 to £280. The Ministry of Justice says that the increase in fees is a reflection of the cost of work courts have to do to process eviction notices.
