In Reply to: Can a landlord open tenant's mailbox to serve a notice? posted by Sergei on November 24, 2001 at 00:45:09:
Check the English-language version of the Canada Post website -- http://www.canadapost.ca/segment-e.asp -- or call your local post office for information.
In the U.S., nothing is allowed in a mailbox, even an unlocked mailbox, unless proper postage has been paid.
You really have raised two issues:
(1) Why does your landlord have a key to your mailbox? You should probably change the lock and not give your landlord the new key until you are moving out.
(2) Can this notice be served legally by mail, and if so, is placing it in your locked mailbox, without postage, proper according to Canada Post?
: Can a landlord open - without the consent- the tenant's mailbox with a spare key to serve a notice? Is in it an intrusion?
: I am in Toronto, Canada. Thank you.
