It is fundamental to your claim to submit full and correct evidence at court.
Oral evidence can be given at the hearing and Certificates of Service can be filed, but a witness statement setting out all of the facts of the tenancy and the claim is the best form of supporting your case.
Most Judges/Courts prefer a witness statement setting out the facts of the case. It has been known for some Judges to adjourn cases if there is no witness statement, even with a Certificate of Service in place. To avoid this risk, a witness statement is crucial, including service of the notice and ensure to provide the tenant/s with a copy of the statement.
