Rental Payments on Leased Quarters by Postmasters

It has been suggested that postmasters in claiming credit for rental payments on leased quarters be not required to certify that trustees signing rent vouchers are acting within the scope of their authority and with the approval of the court. It has been further suggested that this responsibility be shifted to the lessor since it places undue responsibility on the Postmasters.

In view of the representations made with reference to the work and difficulties encountered by postmasters in obtaining the required certificate in certain instances, no objection to such certification would be made, with the understanding that such certification would be accepted only as prima facte evidence of its contents. Since the certification of the executor, administrator, trustee, or guardian, as the case may be, would attach to and become a part of the rental voucher, the postmaster, as certifying officer, still would be required under the law to certify the voucher for payment and still would be primarily responsible and accountable for the legality and propriety of such payment.
