Process Server UK
When notifying a party of legal action, it is important to be sure that the documentation has actually been received. A Process server is a trusted third party that will guarantee that documents have been delivered directly into the hands of the named recipient(s) and informed them of the contents. Process servers will then provide a statement, certificate or affidavit that details when, where and how the document was served, to prove that the party has been notified.
We offer a fixed-fee process serving package of up to 3 visits. We guarantee that the documents will be served correctly and on time, every time. We will provide you with a statement of service within 48 hours of serving the documents to confirm the time and date of the delivery. We accept work funded by the Legal Aid Authority as well as private cases.
Many recipients are aware that they will be getting served at some point and can make it difficult for process servers to locate and identify them. Fortunately, we are private investigators. We are discreet, experienced, and have a variety of techniques and equipment we can use to locate the subject, confirm their identity and evidence their receipt.

Process serving is a process conducted by professionals to ensure important documents are received by the designated recipient and to prevent them from being able to deny knowledge of the contents. Process is usually served ‘personally’ which involves speaking with the recipient directly and either handing them the paperwork or informing them of the contents and leaving them in a safe place.
Our fixed-fee process serving packages include up to three visits so we can make a further two visits without incurring additional fee’s.
Some types of document (For example: Statutory Demand at a companies Registered Office) can be served by affixing the documents to a safe and visible place, others can be served through substituted-service (Posting them through a letterbox) so although it is preferred, it is not always mandatory to physically hand them to the recipient.
The general rule of thumb is that if we are unable to speak with the recipient we will make enquiries to confirm they live there and send a letter of appointment arranging a time which we will return to the property to personally serve the respondent.
