When taking actions against a London based company or company director, it is strongly recommended that you check that the registered address is actually a trading address. Over recent years many companies have listed a registered address that is merely a registered office at their Accountants, a mailing office, a virtual office, a formation company or a management/secretarial service. In these cases the Creditor, Claimant, Applicant or Petitioner is simply wasting their money in taking any actions against them as the matter will be returned as non-enforceable or unable to meet.
The City of London Bailiffs have been very busy providing worldwide companies with an address checking service, where a visit at the given address is undertaken and a witness statement supporting our findings is supplied. This procedure can then ensures our client that any intended actions can be confidently applied. In the many cases where the company's address is not a trading address or manned office, the City of London Bailiffs can investigate for an alternative address or trace the residential addresses of the company Directors. These checks are vital when proceeding with Statutory Demands, Judgment Orders or any other matters against a company or it's Directors.
