U.S. Postal Service occupying part of land but no agreement?

1 Reply

I’m in the process of purchasing some land and the USPS has a mailbox on it.I checked with the city to see if they had a written agreement for the use of this land and they could not find anything on file.Also, the contract to purchase the land does not state any agreement with USPS.How should I approach this situation with my local USPS?Should I request the removal of these mailboxes or require rental fee for usage?

Can you give some more details @Jason L. ? Are you talking about a large blue public mailbox? Is the box on the property or is it at the street/sidewalk on city-owned property? Does the mailbox  inhibit the use of the land? You should call the postmaster and see if they will just move it. It shouldn't be a big deal. Good luck.
