Dear Customer, thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I would like to assist you today.
I just want to confirm my understanding, you are asking whether or not someone is able to place a post office box on another person's property. Is that correct? (It is permissible to place a box on your own private property, you may not place a box on someone else's property without permission - that is trespassing).
(This does not appear germane to your inquiry, but for the requirements on placing a Post Office Box, you can locate the USPS requirements here: https://www.usps.com/manage/know-mailbox-guidelines.htm).
Dear Customer, I we have had some issues with browser compatibility and our "chat" function. I am going to transfer our conversation to our "Q&A" format to ensure that you are able to review my answer, and that I can respond to any questions you may have.
In summary, while I would like to confirm your question, the short answer is: you may erect a post box on your own property, or on another's property with their permission. You may not erect a post box on another's property without permission, it is trespass and is actionable, both for the cost of removal of the box, and for exemplary damages.
