If your tenant has left and not provided you with a forwarding address, or satisfied her obligations to you, the U.S. Postal Service may have an easy way to get in touch. If your tenant has filed a change of address in order to have her mail forwarded, you can send a piece of mail which will be returned with her new address, if known. You can also send mail that will be forwarded with a notice of the new address sent to you for a small fee.
Things You'll Need
- Envelope or postcard with postage
- Address of your rental unit and name tenant used for mail
Type on an envelope or postcard your return address in the upper left and the tenant's name and address at your rental unit in the center.
Under your return address, type "RETURN SERVICE REQUESTED" to receive the item back with any new address, or "ADDRESS SERVICE REQUESTED" to have the piece forwarded and receive a separate notice of any new address for a small fee.
Mail the item. If any forwarding order is on file, you should receive the new address.
