Collector (UK) will undertake Process Serving upon your instructions throughout England & Wales.
Process Serving is the procedure employed to give legal notice to a person (such as a defendant) of a court or administrative body’s exercise of its jurisdiction over that person so as to enable that person to respond to the proceedings before the Court, body or other tribunal. Usually, notice is furnished by delivering a set of call documents (called” process”) to the person to be served. Typically, a summons and related documents must be served upon the defendant personally, or in some cases upon another person.
Court Orders, Bankruptcy Petitions, Statutory Demands, Summonds or Claim Forms, Writs.
Check the following before instructing us:-
Check the process server has sufficient time for service - if the deadline for service is less than 3 days away, you must contact us by telephone 0845 299 6336 so we can confirm and plan for your instructions.
Check the name of the person being served is correct - if it is incorrect, you must take it back to Court and ask them to amend it. Only a Court Officer is able to make the amendment - doing it yourself may invalidate the document. Failing to amend it can result in the service being invalid as the person served can argue they are not the person named on the document.
Check the service address is complete - although an incorrect or incomplete address does not invalidate your documents, it can cause delay serving your document.
Check whether you can provide any other useful information - by providing any of the following information we can ensure our process servers attend at the right times and speak with the right people:-
Time when the subject is likely to be home
Physical description or photo
Age or date of birth.
