Federation Small Claims Beis Din (Beis Horo'oh)

The Federation provides a Beis Horo’oh for small claims.

Claims brought before the Beis Horo’oh must meet the following criteria:

  • Claims must not exceed £5000
  • Each side is required to pay a nominal fee of £75 (for claims above £2,000 the fee will be £100). This assumes the session will last no longer than one hour.
  • The case will be heard by a single Dayan – in most cases this will be Dayan Y D Hool of the Federation Beis Din
  • Parties may not bring a To’en Rabbonim or a professional representative but are required to represent themselves
  • Before attending a shtar borerus  (arbitration agreement) must be signed – click here to download the form
  • A brief written psak (giving the ruling but no detailed reasoning) will normally be presented to the parties within 72 hours
