Hello!  New to the forum.  Thanks for having me.

I am overhauling an archaic management company, and I'm attempting automate as many of the processes as possible.  In particular, one issue remains difficult on which to find information: default notices.  Must they be sent in traditional certified snail mail? Is an email with a "read receipt" sufficient legal notice? We use Yardi exclusively on the software end--does anyone know of functions within the platform to officially and legally issue notices of default?

Any enlightenment on the topic would be very helpful.  Thanks!

I would think that in court, a read receipt email would not be enough. Since there is nothing official about an email, they don't know who actually read it. I can create an email with my tenant's name, create fake emails, and then 'read' them. In a court, it would like exactly like a real tenant (I may add some defensiveness, needy maintenance requests, and give an attitude, etc.), but they have no proof of who is actually on the other end. They could have two emails and simply claim the one you sent stuff to was not actually their email.

We send everything certified mail with signature required, plus regular mail, plus post it to their door.
