Our Process

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

Our professional process servers will obtain relevant documentation and instruction and carry out 3 visits to the primary location or home address to conduct service in compliance with civil procedure and ensure proof of identification of the defendant or recipient.

If the home address does not provide opportunity for service, we will endeavour to serve at other relevant locations for the defendant such as a workplace or home of a partner or family member or any other location advised.

If it is suspected that the defendant is present at the address but evading service, our process servers will utilise legitimate and responsible approaches to encourage contact and will persevere with service attempts in a respectful but firm manner.

If it becomes apparent that the defendant has absconded or relocated, we can also offer services to address this issue such as person or debtor tracing if requested.

Once service has been concluded, we will advise our client and forward all required proforma and evidence to verify this such as a statement of service or sworn affidavit.

In the unusual situation that Bond Rees cannot complete service we will support our client with all they need to make application for third-party or substituted service and prevent any avoidable delay to proceedings.

Process Server FAQs

What is a process server not allowed to do?

A process server cannot force entry to private property, cannot use threats or abusive language or behaviours to achieve serving, cannot pose as a protected professional such as police officer or court official, cannot serve documents to an alternative individual unless proper consent given and must apply confidentiality.

Can you sue someone if you cannot serve them?

The defendant has no obligation to make themselves available for serving but this will not result in the termination of legal proceedings due to other options available such as third-party or substituted service or even the possibility to serve notice through other means.

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.
