CERTIFIED LETTERS

I keep having certified letters coming back signed COVID 19.
Anyone else and does it matter

    You will have to check with your current state rules, but some states have temporarily halted all collections activity, late fees, evictions for non payment, etc.  I can't think of any other reason someone would return a letter with Covid 19 written on it.

    Signed by the Post Office, or the tenant?  If it's the tenant it would be just like when they refuse to accept the certified, or never pick it up and the auction process will continue anyway.  At least that's the law in SC.

    Ya, who is writing that on there?  I've never heard of that before.  There are many reasons to send certified letters - not all of them are collections.  I don't think the U.S.P.S. would have the right to deny that or they wouldn't be mailing them out at the post office to begin with.

    Got my first 2 back and talked to my Post Master.  The new regulations are--due to Covid--that on regular certifieds they just have to write in the signature line "covid-19" and deliver normally, no signature.  If you still want an actual signature you have to step up to restricted delivery which takes the cost up to $12.40.  I will start doing that from now on.  To me, it is well worth the extra $.

    If your state does not require signatures don't bother wasting the money. Every state i've operated in has never required it for liens. All we have to do is send via a form of mail that provides a proof of the date it was sent so all we do is use the firm book digital forms. Take it to the post office to get your circle date stamp on the form, send up to 8 letters a page for a couple of bucks total.

    I guess it is what you feel comfortable with.

    We use certificate of mailing ....it proves we have sent them a notice of the Lien sale and its stamped by the USP ; much cheaper than certified mailings.

    yes and that is CERTIFICATE of mailing not CERTIFIED.  Two completely diff forms and prices.

    That is odd and it doesn't seem like my mailman is doing that as I sent out a certified letter and my mailman is not delivering it "normally."  He is waiting for the addressee to sign for it (which I know he won't and it will eventually get sent back to me).

    My mailman still makes me sign for every returned certified letter he brings me!  And I'm not even the recipient, I'm the original sender!!!
