Change of Address Letter

This Change of Address Letter can be used to notify people or organisations of a change of address. This letter may be sent prior to a move, specifying the date after which the sender will be at the new address. It may also be sent after the sender has moved to the new address. This letter also allows the sender to request confirmation of receipt of the notice of change of address.

This document can be used for both residential (e.g. moving home) and business (e.g. change of business premises, change of registered office, etc.) changes of address.

This Change of Address Letter provides a quick and simple way to notify any person or organisation who needs to be informed about the change.
