Verruiming bevoegdheid kantonrechter uitgesteld

Nieuws 10 June 2011

Met ingang van 1 januari 2011 zou de kantonrechter zaken tot een waarde van maximaal 25.000 euro gaan behandelen. De achterliggende gedachte is dat er op die wijze meer eenvoudige zaken zonder hulp van een advocaat aan de kantonrechter voorgelegd kunnen worden. Bij zaken voor de kantonrechter hoeft immers geen advocaat ingeschakeld te worden.

De uitbreiding van de bevoegdheid van de kantonrechter is echter uitgesteld tot 1 juli 2011. De parlementaire behandeling van het wetsvoorstel duurt namelijk langer dan was voorzien. Er zijn inmiddels door de eerste kamer schriftelijke vragen gesteld over het wetsvoorstel. Er wordt gestreefd naar inwerkingtreding van de wetswijziging per 1 juli 2011.

Vooralsnog blijft de huidige regeling van toepassing, waarin de rechter bevoegd is in zaken met een beloop van maximaal 5.000 euro, of de wettelijk bepaalde andere zaken, zoals arbeidsrecht.

Voor meer informatie kunt u contact opnemen met mr. R.C. Sies.

Solving your problem, so that you can continue with your business. That is what it is all about. It is our profession and our passion to make a business dispute or employment dispute manageable and to solve it. Sometimes we are able to do this by staying invisible by casebuilding the best file possible for and together with you behind the scenes. Being diplomatic where possible and aggressive where needed. And sometimes, full-on litigating is unavoidable. Because limits have been reached, because the other party remains unwilling to come to a constructive amicable solution, or because it may be important for your market reputation to draw a line.

Tailor-made service is key in the handling of each case. Because we are doing it together, lawyer and client. We invest in the mutual cooperation and we look in depth at your company and your market.
