Security for costs against a claimant who has taken steps to make enforcement difficult

This practice note provides guidance on how the court will consider an application for security for costs on the ground that the claimant has taken steps in relation to his assets that would make it difficult to enforce a costs order against him (CPR 25.13(2)(g)). For guidance on security for costs in general and the procedure, see Practice notes, Security for costs: an overview and The procedure for applying for security for costs.
