PRODUCT INFO | Solicitors, Property Managers and Businesses with an in-house legal function, are regular users of our nationwide panel of trusted process servers.
Our usual instruction will be to a serve a Notice connected to a lease, which puts the tenant of unpaid rent or dilapidations. Litigation and Property Solicitors use us for a variety of reasons where personal service of documents under The Civil Procedure Rules in England and Wales, require that mode of service.
One call to our Business Solutions TEAM gives you access to our national coverage of the UK mainland to serve your documents and prove service. We will provide you with a Certificate of Service. This document will withstand detailed scrutiny by a Court or comply with the terms of a contract, lease or other document relating to evidence for service.
Perhaps you have not considered personal service before as an option. Putting things in the post and then relying on “deemed service” can be a risk particularly when it comes down to proving service. Deemed service is of course allowed under CPR Part 6 but in our experience of serving Notices of Enforcement, we like to be clear with the Court and anyone else that Notice was actually served and we can prove it. For Notices of Enforcement we always use email service in the first instance with a delivered and read receipt and it has worked to confirm service where postal service was still “deemed” rather than “actual”.
Personal service is a step up in terms of the document(s) being delivered to the address by hand. The process server can then complete a Certificate of Service to confirm that he or she actually attended the address and what they did to achieve service. This could be handing it to the person, or posting it through the letterbox.
If a job is time sensitive, then please call us to discuss your EXACT requirements so that we can ensure these are passed on to the process server.
