Serving Documents on Squatters
Squatters have got to be a property owner or land owner’s biggest headache!
Help is at hand, if you follow the correct process, they can be removed by using an interim possession order (IPO) or making a claim for possession. These documents need to be served on the defendants in the correct manner and on time.
So how can Arkline’s Process Servers in the UK help you serve these documents?
In cases where the documents are issued against ‘persons unknown’, Arkline will serve those persons by:-
- Attaching the claim form and associated documents to the main door or some other part of the land so that they are clearly visible and if possible inserting copies of the documents in a sealed transparent envelope addressed to ‘the occupiers’ through the letterbox.
- Attaching to posts, or placing stakes in the land where they are clearly visible and attaching to each post or stake copies of the documents in sealed transparent envelopes addressed to ‘the occupiers’.
Day 1 – Arkline was requested by a solicitor to arrange an agent to collect documents from their offices and then attend court to issue them the following day, time to be provided in the morning.
Day 2 – time agreed at 14:00 hours. Agent attended court, delays at court, agent waited and obtained documents at
Day 3 –
