Thank you for these suggestions. I’m going to try as many of them as I can. And let you know later what happened.

Go usps. You have 3 options.
1. Hold mail for 30 days, then delivery to that address or pick up.
2. They will forward mail once a week in a envelope for $14.00 week
3. Or for $1.06 will forward each piece as it comes in. ( if it’s important mail this is not one I trust.

You can change dates, on any of the three at any time. If you have informed mail you know what’s being delivered.
We hold our mail, have it delivered to our box, text home watch and they pick up for us.

Did you call who is sending you The mail and just change the address. We do that all the time

I like what you do, Asianthree, I would like to do that too in the long run. I have Empty Nest looking after the home. I guess I could send them a post box key if they would pick up the mail for me. How long do they let you have mail in your box at the local post office?

We give a date to delivery to our postal station. We text home watch what day all will arrive they pick up next day. We always leave a key for box, at our house. If there is something important I have priority mail envelopes already addressed and cash for each envelope for priority fee,and cost of them to take to post

The lady at the sales center told me there is no phone at Mallory Square post office but that Lady Lake Post office handles all the mail. Then she said they have a phone number but they will not pick up, which it true as when I dialed I got a busy signal constantly. She suggested I go in person (from several thousand miles away). There must be another solution.
How does the postal service (which I assume is a government service) work in TV, or the county. How do I talk to someone?
Suggestions for others and perhaps old news but when we used to go on vacation we would go to the post office fill out the form on a face to face, to have our mail held several days before. It was perhaps more important than here at the Villages in that I was running a business. We had delivery to our door,
at no extra charge by the way, but, our mail box could not hold several days worth of mail. The batting average for the post office was close to zero over the many years we lived there.
We did it several days before so we would know if it was working. Generally, after asking for the post office manger by the second time it worked.

As I understand it you sold a place in the villages, bought another but are currently living out of state. Hopefully, things went well with your buyer. Perhaps, contact your real estate atty. If, necessary contact the buyer. You can surely send them a few bucks to forward your mail by priority mail. You can get a tracking number and track it on line. Someone suggested you send your broker to the post office. I doubt the would or even could do that. Surely the post office would insist on a picture ID that they are you.

I’m afraid I wasn’t working with real estate who were representing me. I was on my own. Can’t ask them to help that is why I kept asking for advice at TOTV site. Well, my husband was with me and he made suggestions... all of which I ended up following, but he is working so much he has no time or energy for my “projects”.
But I think I can take your other advice. I am so lucky to have all this help.
