I am curious as how the courts view email when it comes to serving required paperwork.

So for example

A NOA served by email, is it valid?


A DN served by email is it valid and what date would it be deemed to have been served


A SD served by email? I know that signed for is allowed if they have failed to serve it by hand


My concern would be that with spam filters, ability to block emails, often multiple access to email addresses and of course multiple /disposable email addresses how can they show that it has been served and served on the correct person.


Any thoughts please

Any opinion I give is from personal experience .

A Default Notcie is fine... Think Wonga etc..

Same as a Notice Of Assignment.


But things like SD are very important and need to be delivered by post or hand...


We could do with some help from you.

I would argue that a DN or a NOA is just as important because unless a compliant DN is issued an agreement can not be enforced.


According to LPA a NOA should be served by signed for or special delivery

I think all legal notices should be sent by snail mail. While a DN and an NoA could be sent by email there is still the issue of proof it was received. If Wonga (for example) mis typed an email address then obviously it would not be received and as such is it then lawful?


SD's (I feel) are different. As a precursor to a bankrupty petition, these need to be proven as delivered. I don't feel email fulfills that obligation.

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor
