This Practice Note considers the procedure for paying monies into court following an order being made for security for costs. Payment is made to the Court Funds Office. The Practice Note then considers how to apply for payment to be made out of the Court Funds Office either to the successful defendant, once an order for costs has been made in favour of that defendant, or to the claimant if the claimant is successful in their claim such that no costs order is made in favour of the defendant. Finally the Practice Note considers whether, in the event that the defendant is successful and there are surplus funds with the court after payment of the costs order, whether an application can be made by the defendant for any surplus funds to be made to the defendant in full or part settlement of any judgment.
