Gated housing community can’t even protect you from being served

Not even a gated housing community can protect you from being served with civil proceedings, thanks to a Federal Court case handed down today.

The defendant lived in a gated community at Sanctuary Cove (QLD), and it even had security guards!

The process server failed on 4 attempts to personally serve the claim.

The process server managed to talk to the defendant’s son, an unidentified woman and a security guard, but never managed to get through to the defendant.

The Court instead ordered that the plaintiff could effect service via ‘substituted service’, meaning that the claim could be served by:

– posting it at the defendant’s last known address; and

– emailing it to the defendant’s last known email.

To Troy Holford, if you’re out there, you might want to check your letterbox/email.
