Our Process

Bond Rees will undertake 3 visits to the home or primary location to attempt process serving in adherence with procedure and will obtain verification of identity of the defendant or recipient.

If attempts at the home address fail to result in process serving, we will attend other addresses known to offer opportunity for service such as a workplace or any other potential premises as advised by our client or recommended by other persons present at the home address.

If it is suspected that the defendant or recipient may have absconded or relocated, we can also undertake person or debtor tracing services to assist with this issue.

On successful completion of process serving, Bond Rees will advise our client and proceed to equip them with all required proforma and proof to officially confirm this such as a certificate or statement of service or sworn affidavit.

In the uncommon circumstances that our professional process servers are unable to complete service successfully we will make certain that we furnish our client with any reports, information, and evidence they require to make application for third-party or substituted service and to minimise any avoidable delay to proceedings.

Process Server FAQs

Can a defendant refuse to be served?

A defendant can decline to accept documents by hand but cannot refuse service as the server can place the documents in their physical proximity and within view and evidence that this has occurred, and this constitutes service.

What can process servers not do?

A process server is not allowed to enter private property by force or breaking in, cannot achieve serving through verbal or physical aggression or threat, must not make false claim of official role such as a police officer, and must not disclose any information about the document or person receiving it to any other party.

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

Bond Rees are determined process servers and will try other addresses or locations that the defendant may be at if they evade service at their home address. 

If the defendant has moved or relocated or gone into hiding, Bond Rees are able to provide person tracing and debtor tracing as an additional service to resolve this.

In the rare event that we are unable to serve the defendant in person, we will assist our client to gain consent for third-party or substituted service and proceedings will not be affected other than perhaps experiencing some slight delay.

What information does a process server need?

It is beneficial to process serving if you can provide as much information about the defendant or recipient as possible; full name, date of birth, home address, work address, any other known frequented locations, and a current photograph can all be extremely useful.

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