registered post form previous owner

we moved into our house 1-2 month ago, and we are receiving registered post from the previous owner multiple times a month. thats annoying.

the first 2 times, we collected was was delivered and dropped it off at the selling agencies office. but its just keeps going.

how do we handle that? its annoying. i was about to tell my wife to just throw the stupid letter away, but that doesnt feel right.

is there a way to let anpost know not to deliver letter to a certain person to our house?

Send a message via AIM to Stark
Write "Not at this address" on the envelope and pop it in the post-box. It'll get sent to the return address and hopefully they'll know to update their records.

I mark the envelopes "not at this address" or similar and stick them back into postbox. They should be returned to sender then

When you say 'registered post', are you signing for them.

Why are the previous owners sending you registered post?

Registered post needs to be signed for no?
In that case why would you be signing for someone elses post!
Other than that write not at this address and stick em back into a postbox.

Absolute idiocy.

It's not addressed to you. Don't sign for it. If it's delivered anyway, give it back to the postman.

Don't sign for other people's post. That's the whole point of registered post.
