Hello, this is my first post and was trying to find out if all letters should be sent via normal delivery services or if recorded mail should be?? I sent first letter normal and allowed two days before counting out the 14 days but i'm just about to send the LBA for my brother and wondered what to do?

Many Thanks:confused:

Recorded delivery so that the bank cannot say that they haven't received it and that you have proof. Good Luck and Welcome to the CAG.

Recorded delivery mail still goes through with the rest of the post so it should, in theory, take exactly the same amount of time as a standard letter. The difference is, as natweststaffmember says, you will have proof that they have received the letter.

I have to disagree,


The courts send correspondence 1st class and deem it served two days later.


I would get proof of posting though just so you at least have something to show should it be necessary.

Recorded Delivery is often more trouble than it's worth - it is extra, unnecessary expense and can just lead to further problems.


There is no requirement to obtain proof of delivery - just an ordinary First Class stamp will do.
