PRACTICE: Costly estimates

02 December 2016  

James Morrison outlines a recent application for security for costs

In Agents’ Mutual Ltd v Gascoigne Halman Ltd (t/a Gascoigne Halman) [2016], the defendant sought additional security for costs in a claim relating to the terms of membership of online property portal OnTheMarket. The claimant had already provided security of £500,000. However, the defendant sought a further £1m in circumstances where it estimated that its total costs would be just over £2.8m.
