Good afternoon Phillipa,

Generally at law it is true that the losing party has to reimburse the winner for legal expenses, however depending on which division you are at this may be capped at a certain level.

This can be a double edged sword in the Small Claims Division where you might spend more than you recover.

Generally merchantile agents are often paired up with solicitors whom they will recommend or refer the collection work to in the instance that the merchantile agent is unsuccessful.

Regardless you should seek formal legal advice in relation to your options.
