How long may I wait before filing my Small Claim?
The length of time you have to file depends upon the type of claim you are bringing. If a written agreement has been broken or breached, you have five years after the date it was broken to file your claim. If your claim pertains to a verbal agreement or contract, rent, or injury to goods, then you have three years to file your claim.
