Our Process

Bond Rees can serve any legal document for our clients anywhere in the UK and will meet any timescale you need us to, even if this is at short notice or on an urgent basis.

Our professional process servers will acquire relevant documentation and instruction and undertake 3 visits to the primary location or home address to undertake service in line with civil procedure and ensure verification of identification of the defendant or recipient.

If the home address does not yield required results, we will attempt service at other relevant locations for the defendant such as a workplace or home of a partner or relative.

If it is detected that the defendant is present at the premises, we attend but hiding from service, our process servers will employ legitimate and responsible techniques to encourage contact and will persist with service attempts in a respectful but resolved approach.

If the defendant appears to have absconded or relocated, we can also provide services to resolve this issue such as person or debtor tracing if requested.

Once service has been achieved, we will inform our client and submit all required proforma and evidence to support this such as a statement of service or sworn affidavit.

In the rare event that Bond Rees are unable to complete service we will provide our client with all they need to make application for third-party or substituted service and minimise any delay to proceedings.

Process Server FAQs

Will proceedings not go ahead if you can’t serve someone?

There are many further options if a defendant or individual evades service such as substituted service and other means used to give notice; proceedings will not terminate if initial attempts to serve are unsuccessful.

How many attempts will Bond Rees make to undertake service?

We will make 3 attempts to serve at the primary or home location before trying other addresses such as a place of work. Our professional process servers are tenacious and committed with the skill sets and abilities to persist with difficult or evasive defendants.

Do I need a professional process server?

Certain legal documents need to be served in person with identification verified. This can be a difficult and, at times, risky task and it is important that serving takes place correctly and in accordance with required procedure. Hiring a professional process server removes risk to you and guarantees correct process and proof of service.
