Bond Rees is rated as the Best process server in Canterbury on Trustpilot

Process serving plays a vital role in any legal proceedings; if papers, or a court order or statutory demand cannot be served or a defendant is highly evasive, this can cause significant delay, and if process serving is not undertaken correctly, the defendant can easily deny all knowledge or receipt of any legal document.

Bond Rees provide effective and reliable UK wide professional process serving to ensure that your documents reach the right hands, within the deadline required, and that full evidence is obtained to prove that this has been completed with no room for denial or challenge of this.

We are a highly experienced process server with many years of operating in the field and well-developed expertise, knowledge, and skill sets that enable us to consistently achieve service for our clients and offer a personal service that accommodates individual need as well as, of course, civil procedure.

Our Process

Bond Rees will allocate an experienced process server to your case as soon as you hire us who will obtain the documents concerned and proceed with process serving at the primary address, in person, ensuring all protocol is followed and identification verified.

If service is unsuccessful, we will make 3 attempts at the home address, employing legitimate techniques and methods to encourage contact and service if we detect the defendant is at the property, and will then try other locations such as a workplace or other known frequented locations of the recipient.

Our process servers are tenacious and determined and will persist with evasive or avoidant defendants and we can also offer person or debtor tracing as an additional professional service if this proves necessary.

If we are, on the rare occasion, unable to complete service, Bond Rees will ensure that our client receives all necessary information and proof to support application for third-party or substituted service and we can also assist with this if instruction is provided.

Following successful completion of process serving, our experienced process server will issue confirmation of this and any required documentation for example a statement of service or sworn affidavit.

Bond Rees will ensure that our client is kept abreast of any problems that occur within the course of service and any potential but rare delay.

Process Server FAQs

What is a process server not allowed to do?

A process server is not allowed to break in or force entry to private property, to pose as another professional such as a police officer or court official, to serve documents to a non-named recipient, or use threat, intimidation, or aggression to achieve service.

What locations can Bond Rees provide process serving in?

Bond Rees have local offices across the country including in Canterbury and offer process serving anywhere you require throughout the UK.

Can a defendant trick a process server?

There is no legal obligation on the defendant to present or co-operate with service and it is common for recipients to try to trick the server by claiming a false identity for example or attempt to hide from the process server.

Bond Rees are experienced process servers and alert to the many tricks and tactics defendants try and will spot this and have skills and strategies to counter such behaviour – there is nothing we have not seen before, and this behaviour will not stop proceedings or achieve any long-term benefit for the defendant.

What information does a process server need?

It is helpful and conducive to accurate and efficient process serving if you can provide as much information as possible; full name, documents required, home address, work address, any other known frequented locations, and a current photograph can all be extremely useful.

It’s also important to advise of any known risks such as a history of violence or any suspected substance misuse so that our process servers can prepare, and risk assess this appropriately.

However, do not be overly concerned if you do not have all of this information as we can still undertake process serving with limited or basic details where necessary.
