Form N215 is used for a Certificate of Service of a claim form in the jurisdiction.

Rule 6.17 of the Civil Procedure Rules states that where a court serves a claim form the court will send the claimant a notice which will include the date on which the claim form is deemed served under rule 6.14.

Where the claimant serves the claim form they must file a Certificate of Claim within 21 days of service of the particulars of claim unless all defendants to the proceedings have filed acknowledgements of service within that time.

A claimant cannot obtain a default judgement unless a Certificate of Service has been filed.

The Certificate of Service must state the category of address at which the claimant believes the claim form is served and the method of service.

The certificate must be verified by a statement of truth. It does not need to state that a claim form has not been returned undelivered.
