[NAFEX] Elderberries Question

I've had problems getting the post office to deliver letters to 'occupant' 
and 'resident'.  Apparently that requires a business or third class 
pre-printed rate?  Doc would have to go to his county clerks/ tax office or 
access its webpage, and find out who owns it, then mail the letter.  In WI, 
anyway.  Here it's more practical to write a note including your contact 
info and leave it in the door or on the porch.  Make it obvious but weather- 
& wind-proof, so you can be sure the resident will see it.  If they don't 
reply, that's up to them and that's all you can do until you see a moving 
van at the house.
