Section 66: Service of documents

230.This section reflects section 76 of the 1992 Act, for the purposes of this Chapter. It specifies the requirements for serving notices to persons or corporate bodies under this Chapter. In the case of a person other than a body corporate, these include delivering it to the person, leaving it at his last known address in the UK, or posting it to him at that address. A notice may be served on a body corporate by delivering or sending it to the body’s registered or principal office in the UK or, if the body does not have such an office in the UK, any place where it carries on its business. A person or corporate body may also notify a specific address for the service of notices under this Chapter.
