Question Time–Mail related

I have a question–
Does Singpost not forward mail?
We have lived in our current apartment for 2 1/2 years and still get mail addressed to a previous resident.  I’ve written does not live here and put it back in the returned mail slot–and the same companies (as in financial/credit card companies) are still sending him mail at our place.  I have no idea if he moved out directly before us, or five years ago.

So–seriously–it’s annoying to get this dude’s mail.  Can I make it stop?  A neighbor has a note on the front of their box noting for whom they only want delivery.

And thinking forward–when we eventually move (either within SG or elsewhere)–does that mean that Singpost won’t do any forwarding either?

Please readers–enlighten me, as I realize I have no clue on this topic.

    You can go to SingPost to request mail forwarding service, but there is a service charge involved. At my old apartment I was getting quite sensitive financial information for the former tenant – took the effort to track down his new phone number and left him messages, but he never responded.

      Worth knowing that I can get our mail forwarded when the time comes. Guess I’ll have to just keep tossing the former tenants mail back in the return to sender bin.
