This article is an opinion and discusses the benefits of using Bluegrass Legal Courier & Court Messenger as a process server for Kentucky eviction notices. We understand the important role that we play for so many attorneys, landlords, courts, judges, etc. as a courier and court messenger. Also in this article, we wanted to discuss the importance of same-day service when choosing a legal courier or court messenger.
If someone is looking to sue you, divorce you, evict you, obtain child support, or any other legal issues, they may be attempting to have the papers served on you. If you are aware that someone is looking to serve you, you may go out of your way to avoid the process server. You may think that you can avoid being sued if you cannot be served by a process server, but this is not true. If you are avoiding a process server, a judge may allow the papers to be left at your home or business with any competent person over the age of 18. A judge may also allow the summons to be mailed to your home or business address via certified mail. If either of these methods fails, the judge may allow the person looking to take legal action against you to post notices in local newspapers.
Using a Kentucky Process Server or Bluegrass Legal for Kentucky Eviction Notices
Dealing with troublesome tenants is a complicated and often precarious position. There are legal processes that must be respected to avoid problems in the future. A process server can help apartment management or a landlord in delivering legal eviction notices. Continue reading to learn about our top reasons for choosing a process server to help you.
Process Servers Professionally Ensure the Process is Served
Process servers have a tough job. They are responsible for delivering court documents to people. Many people being served have misconceptions that challenge the delivery process. Even the slightest mistake in serving an eviction notice can lead to extending the process. Landlords are at risk when they choose not to use a professional process server. The added stress with this process is often not worth the struggle. A server will be aware of the laws and regulations they need to follow while performing their duties.
Eliminate Unnecessary Delays
If you have thought of eviction for a tenant, there has already been an ongoing problem. A professional service will help end the delays. The longer a problematic tenant occupies the property, the longer the landlord goes without being able to rent to a capable tenant. The process server will be aware of any state requirements so they can help speed up the process while respecting all legal constraints.
Professional Servers Reduce the Impact of Eviction
Serving an eviction notice is not easy, both legally and emotionally. This process is hard on the tenant, but can also be an emotional ordeal for the landlord. Giving notice can be embarrassing for all parties, but a professional server can remove the awkwardness. A process server will deliver the message in a business manner which helps the tenant not take the news personally. Most people recognize the server does not have control over the situation and is just doing their job.
Proof the Tenant was Served
An essential step in the eviction process is providing notice of eviction. This step is critical as tenants can claim that they didn’t receive legal notice of the eviction causing a delay in the proceedings. A process server ensures this step has been taken and documented. Hiring a professional process server also removes the landlord from the eviction process so tenants cannot make unsubstantiated claims about their involvement in court.
