Our Process

Bond Rees are committed and tenacious process servers with the resources and expertise to conduct competent process serving, employing legitimate and responsible techniques and methods when needed to encourage contact and achieve service.

We undertake 3 visits to the primary or home location to provide service but if this is not successful our process servers will attempt service at alternative addresses or locations known to hold potential for service such as a workplace or other premises the defendant is known to frequent.

Bond Rees professional process servers carry out process serving with due regard for civil procedure and obtain verification of identification before issuing documents in person and acquiring evidence of service.

Once process serving is completed, we will advise our client and provide all necessary documentation and proof of service such as a statement of service of sworn affidavit as appropriate, and we can also attend court to provide a witness statement if required.

Where a defendant or recipient is suspected to have absconded or relocated, Bond Rees can also provide person or debtor tracing services to ascertain their whereabouts if this is required.

In the unlikely situation that we cannot conclude service, Bond Rees will help our client in any way possible to minimise unavoidable delay to proceedings and enable application for third-party or substituted service.

Process Server FAQs

What can a process server not do?

A process server is not allowed to force entry to private property, use threat, force, or intimidation to achieve service, or impersonate another professional such as a police officer or court official.

How quickly can you serve my legal document?

Bond Rees cover the whole of the UK with local branches distributed throughout including in Exeter, and we work on a 24/7 basis meaning that we can serve your legal document anywhere in the country as soon as you need us to.

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

Bond Rees are tenacious process servers and will do all in our power to complete process serving for our clients. We will persist with attempting service at known locations and can also provide person or debtor tracing services if the individual continues to be evasive.

If it is truly impossible to make contact with the defendant there are other options available such as third-party or substituted service where documents can be served to another connected person, and this will not prevent proceedings from continuing.
