My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: California
The owner of storage facility provided proof that they mailed a certified letter in regards to the sale of items of mine BUT it appears that the USPS failed in their responsibility because they received no signature from me and I am the only person who could physically answer the door if knocked upon. The USPS only reports:
"Delivered, Front Desk/Reception/Mail Room"
There is no Front Desk, Reception, or Mail Room where I live. Obvious shortcut of postal employee who did not want to be bothered with coming to my door (mail is delivered to a collection of numbered boxes for 50-60 units). I believe the owner of storage units is off the hook on this one but do I have any recourse with the USPS? I lost a considerable amount. Enough so that the owner has already said that she owes me money from the sale.
Was just a matter of absent minded, and turmoil at the time. My wife joined the Army and will be gone for a total of 16 weeks between Basic Training and then followed by her Specialized training. All by myself I have an almost 2 year old that gets 5 home visits a week for speech and communication issues and a 3 1/2 year old with Autism and just as many home visits himself along with 4, 3-hour days of preschool at the local school district location. My life is in constant turmoil and I screwed up. I showed up to pay the balance in full a matter of a few days from when it was auctioned.
