The burofax is a means of communication that enjoys a high legal validity. This is a physical document that is hand-delivered to the addressee, who in turn signs for its receipt. Thus, the burofax is considered admissible evidence in both judicial and extrajudicial instances, since it is a reliable communication. This probative value is extreme when the bureaufax is sent through a qualified provider of trustworthy electronic services such as the MailComms group.

What can or can you be notified with a burofax?

The burofax has numerous uses thanks to its high probative legal value and the security provided by using it as a means of communication. Some of the most common uses of the bureaufax include:

  • Payment requirements.
  • Claims to companies.
  • Labor notifications (sick leave, dismissals, ERE, ERTE, etc).
  • Communications in bankruptcy proceedings.
  • Communication of contract termination.
  • Notices between landlords and tenants.
  • Notifications of meeting notices and resolutions.
  • Request and confirm the cancellation of service providers (water, electricity, telephone, insurance…).

What are the advantages of a burofax?

Among the advantages offered by the use of a burofax are its security and legal validity. Its use certifies the delivery of a communication and its content, which generates a reliable proof in case of the need to accredit such communication. This provides great security to both the person sending the bureaufax and the recipient of the bureaufax. In addition, some laws or contracts may require communications in a “reliable” form, i.e., through a means that guarantees or certifies its veracity. This is the case of the burofax.

Is the burofax delivered by hand?

The burofax is sent from the physical office of a postal operator or through any computer thanks to some online platforms that allow processing this type of mailings, such as those of the MailComms group. Regardless of how it is handled (physically or digitally), the postal bureaufax is delivered to the addressee physically and at the address indicated by the sender, which is usually the sender’s home address.

If, after several attempts, delivery is not possible, the courier or letter carrier will leave a notice at the addressee’s address to pick it up at the nearest postal operator’s office. The burofax will remain there for some time waiting to be claimed by the addressee. If this does not happen, the burofax will be returned to the sender.

The addressee may or may not accept the delivery of the bureaufax but, be careful, refusing to receive the bureaufax with the intention of not being aware of its content may have important legal consequences depending on its content.

In summary, the bureaufax is still one of the forms of physical communication that generates the most security and legal evidence. It is a valuable tool to record the sending of a communication, especially in those cases where certainty and probative value are of great importance.
