IN THE PROCESS OF SERVING A FORECLOSURE, THE CLIENT SENT FOUR SERVES TO THE SAME ADDRESS. IT TURNED OUT THAT THE ADDRESS WAS THE WORK PLACE OF THE PRINCIPAL PERSON NAMED (SHERRY “LAST NAME” ). ALSO TO BE SERVED WERE “UNKNOWN SPOUSE OF SHERRY ________, UNKNOWN TENANT NUMBER 1 AND UNKNOWN TENANT NUMBER 2.
ACCORDING TO FLORIDA LAW, A SERVER CANNOT SERVE FORECLOSURE DOCUMENTS BEYOND THE PRINCIPAL PERSON (INDIVIDUAL) AT THEIR PLACE OF WORK. THEY MUST BE SERVED AT THE SUBJECT LOCATION/ADDRESS.
IT ALSO TURNED OUT THAT THE UNKNOWN SPOUSE HAD NOT RESIDED WITH THE PRINCIPAL (SHERRY) FOR SEVERAL YEARS EVEN THOUGH STILL MARRIED. THIS PRESENTED A CHANGE IN PROCEDURE AND SERVICE.
SERVICE UPON SHERRY (AS INDIVIDUAL) WAS SERVED AT THE WORKPLACE, WHICH WAS THE GIVEN ADDRESS. SERVER THEN CONTACTED THE ATTORNEY WHO SENT THE DOCS FOR SERVICE AND EXPLAINED THAT THE PRINCIPAL “SHERRY” WAS SERVED. HOWERVER, THE ESTRANGED HUSBAND’S ADDESS IS UNKNOWN AND NEEDS TO BE FOUND VIA SKIP-TRACE. ALSO, THE UNKNOWN TENANT 1 AND UNKNOWN TENANT 2 MUST BE ATTEMPTED AT THE SUBJECT ADDRESS.
THIS PROCEDURE MUST BE ADHERED TO BY FLORIDA RULES OF PROCEDURE.
JUST KNOW THAT BECAUSE AN ENTITY GIVES YOU THE PROFESSIONAL DOCUMENTS, IT IS IMPORTANT FOR THE PROCESS SERVER TO UNDERSTAND THE LAW WHICH GOVERN HIS WORK. THIS WILL MAKE THE PROCESS SERVER MOST VALUABLE AND MAKE HIS CLIENT LOOK GOOD AND SAVE HIM MONEY AND TIME.
