HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Local guidelines are causing headaches for both homebuilders and realtors who claim they are unaware of a new mandate from the United States Postal Service (USPS) that now requires cluster mailboxes for all new construction.
Buyers who purchase a new home will no longer have a mailbox at that home, but the builders say they were unaware the change would be so sudden.
Joey Ceci of Breland Companies told News 19 that they were left in the dark by the postmaster.
Ceci noted the regular process to build a cluster mailbox for new construction was simple.
“The process really was just to build it and at some point, or the postmaster will either ask you to do it or they don’t,” he explained.
