Forwarding post


Recommended Posts


wondered if anyone knew if there is a legal responsibility that I should forward on received post?

My previous tenant seems to think there is - amazing, given that he left owing several months rent and property in a condition that will cost to put right

Any advice would be appreciated.

Many thanks

You are under no legal responsibility to forward any post on. What you are not permitted to do is to open it.

I use to bundle it all up and keep it for 6 Months and if there was no request for the mail it was then destroyed. Never ever had any comebacks.

I have a clause in my contracts which states it is the Tenants responsibilty to inform the PO to re-direct the incoming mail for which the PO charge a fee for.

Having said that, I do offer the outgoing Tenant a very large stamped addressed envelope into which I would place a fortnights mail and post onto them. I have only ever had 1 person take this offer up in nearly 17 years of letting!!

If you Tenant has done a runner than I wouldn't be to concerned in the least.
