Our Process

Bond Rees process servers are located throughout the United Kingdom and operate on a 24 hour, 7 day a week basis and so can respond to any process serving requirement promptly and without delay.

We offer a personal service for every client and are happy to accommodate any specific needs or requests within process serving.

On receipt of legal documents and with consent of the client we will attend the home address or primary location of the defendant and attempt service three times before moving onto other pertinent locations such as a workplace if this fails to yield results.

Our process servers are tenacious and resourceful in their work and will persist with trying to serve avoidant individuals and employ legitimate tactics where we ascertain that the defendant is actually at the address but seeking to evade service.

In cases of extreme evasion or a missing defendant, Bond Rees are also able to provide person or debtor tracing services.

On the rare occasion that we cannot complete service we will ensure to provide our client with all required documents and proof to assist with application for third-party or substituted service.

On successful completion of service we will, of course, provide all confirmation and evidence needed such as a statement of service or sworn affidavit as appropriate.

Process Server FAQs

Why do I need to hire a professional process server?

Hiring a professional process server ensures that your service is undertaken with correct civil procedure and sufficient evidence is provided to prevent denial or challenge from the defendant that papers were received.

This also eliminates any personal risk to you through confrontation or conflict that may occur during service and ensures your safety especially if documents such as a non-molestation order or similar require service.

Is it illegal to evade process serving?

There is no legal obligation placed on the defendant to make themselves available for process serving although their efforts to evade not prevent legal proceedings from continuing as there are many other options available and attempts to evade will be of little long term benefit to the defendant.

What happens if you cannot find the defendant to serve them?

Bond Rees are persistent and tenacious process servers and will persevere even with evasive defendants, as well as having the advantage of our specialist person and debtor tracing services available to us.

In the extreme circumstances that a defendant cannot be found, there are other options for process serving such as substituted service and this will not cause proceedings to terminate.
