If sent a court summons by one's local council, when is the summons considered served if it was sent by second class post?
I queried a council tax bill as directed to by the council, but got a (non-favourable) decision. On the same day I received the decision I also received a court summons, which I am able to avoid if I pay the 'outstanding' council tax plus the court costs. The summons was sent by second class post and is dated 26th April, today being the 28th. I thought summons had to be sent first class post, and I can't find any information on when a summons sent by second class post would be deemed served.
