  • Liability for letting friend use my address for mail/residence?

    A friend of mine is planning to travel the US. After
    his Mom passed 6 months ago he decided he would
    buy a van/rv and re-explore North America. He has
    always been sort of a hobo, extensively traveling the US
    hopping trains/hitch hiking when he was much younger. I told
    him he is not as young (60) as he used to be and would
    most likely tire of it but he will not listen. He has over
    a million so he can afford it. He wants to use my address
    for mailing/insurance/tax/residence purposes. I'm going to
    just toss his mail in a box and he will pick it up whenever
    he passes through. Personally I think he is crazy but
    he has his mind set. I guess he has to learn for himself.
    Do I have any liability? I would think not but who knows.

    Buy the old man a drop mail box. Over charge him for keeping watch on it.

      While I'm not a lawyer, I would say no. If he stayed at your place
      and it was the last place he had a permanent residence, and he never
      lives anywhere except in his trailer or in motel rooms or other
      temporary lodging as he travels around, then it is clear that there
      is no fraud involved as he has no other address and that would be
      his permanent address. As long as he's never in any other state for
      30 consecutive days, he will never establish residence anywhere else
      and thus his actions appear to be reasonable.

        You say he will be using it for "insurance" purposes? Do you mean his
        drivers license and vehicle registration will be from your address?

        As long as he notifies his insurance company that it is a "mailing
        address" only and not a "garaging" address, you will be OK, otherwise,
        his license and registration will show up on YOUR Clue report and effect
        YOUR insurance.
