What is a Process Agent Appointment Letter?

A Process Agent Appointment Letter is a document that can act as evidence of the relationship between your agent for service of process and you – the appointing party.

The official governance of this documentation provides evidence that legal proceedings on behalf of a party – that is without an address within the UK - have been submitted to this jurisdiction.

Why is a Process Agent appointment letter important?

Your appointment letter is vital because it provides the mandatory information when you are dealing with other parties. It will specify:

  • The name of the appointing party
  • The name of the Process Agent
  • The address where notice can be served
  • The legal documents the Service of Process Agent has agreed to act upon

Essentially, a Process Agent appointment letter is important because it provides a simple, objective and official way of confirming the information above. You will often be required to provide your appointment letter, as a conditional precedent, before legal documents can be executed.
