Sorry for the late reply ;)
I would like to know the following:
1) is there any special license needed?
2) is there any limit to number of business to one address?
3) is there any legal issue I should be aware of?

Additional info:
I will not be handling any documentation of banking, business registers, and any other business related documents.
I will be storing clients mails, fax, postal items.
It is highly possible that I will be repackaging clients mails and postal items to send off seas.
yes, you need to make sure you have a general business license there is no limit to number of businesses, but you need to make sure all of them have signed agreements if they are to stay for any particular duration. You need to ensure that you comply with your zoning office in your area, and you need to make sure you carry insurance in the event of accidents or natural disasters. Make sure you get deposits from your clients and ensure you do background checks and credit checks on these people.
