GENE 5A.2.2 Giving written notices personally

(1) A written notice is given to a person (the intended recipient) personally if:
(a) where the intended recipient is an individual — it is given to him or her directly;
(b) where the intended recipient is not an individual — it is given to an individual who is a member, or an employee or representative, of the intended recipient;
(c) it is given to another person (for example, a solicitor) who the intended recipient has nominated to receive the notice; or
(d) it is left at the intended recipient's principal place of business or place of residence last notified to the authority.
(2) If a written notice is left at the intended recipient's principal place of business or place of residence, it is given to the intended recipient personally for this rule if:
(a) it is given to a person at the place who is:
(i) apparently 16 years old or older;
(ii) apparently employed at the place or resident at the place, as the case requires; and
(iii) apparently capable of ensuring that the intended recipient receives it; or
(b) it is otherwise left at the place in such a way that it can reasonably be expected to come to the intended recipient's attention.
