Hi all I have a civil action in progress. The defendant has property assets that are sufficient to pay the claim. I believe they will consider disposing of these and taking actions to reduce their assets to avoid paying. Is there any way for me to prevent the defendant from selling or transferring property during the legal process. I understand that a caveat will only be available once a judgement is entered in my favour. My lawyers have considered freezing orders, and consider them difficult to obtain until there is specific evidence showing the defendants intention to do something illegal to avoid creditors. I have seen instances in which ASIC has been successful in preventing Directors from dealing with property when there is an action against them, especially if they have used company funds to acquire or maintain the property. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with this type of scenario. Obviously I do have advisers assisting me but I know from experience that being self-sufficient and seeking a wide set of opinions can be crucial. Any suggestions much appreciated.
