I have a huge problem with unwanted junk mail, leaflets, phonebooks and charity collection bags and catalogues being delivered to my house. If I were to post a prominent notice on my letterbox indicating that anybody delivering unaddressed items enters into a contract to pay a disposal charge (somewhat analogous to parking notices on private land) could that be enforced through the courts?
Would there be any particular problem in enforcing this against Royal mail as opposed to other companies
Excluding Royal Mail, how is this different from the parking case? I understood that an appeal court precedent has been set for that recently that such a "contract created by a notice" is enforcible. Its fairly clear that there was not a demonstrable loss equivalent to the parking charge in that case
