Settling disputes

If the mail recipient and Posti fail to reach a mutual understanding on the location of the mailbox, the recipient may request a resolution from the building supervision authority of the municipality. The resolution can be appealed to the region's Administrative Court and the decision by the Administrative Court can further be appealed to the Supreme Administrative Court.

In cases of dispute, Posti is entitled to interrupt mail delivery until the matter has been resolved by the force of law.
