Change of Address Letter

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

This letter may be sent to friends and family in order to inform them of a change of address and/or to any of the following:

  • Banks and any other financial institutions;
  • Utility companies;
  • Insurance companies;
  • Employer;
  • Schools and/or colleges;
  • Doctors, dentists, and any other health providers;
  • Magazine/Newspaper subscriptions;
  • Gym membership, and any other memberships and club cards;
  • Any other business with which a person has mail correspondence.

Other organisations who must be informed of a residential change of address:

DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency): In order to change an address on a Driving Licence, the person must inform the DVLA. Information on the procedure is provided on the UK government's website.

HMRC (Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs): In order to change an address for National Insurance and Tax purposes, the person must inform HMRC. Information on the procedure is provided on the UK government's website.

Royal Mail: In order to inform the Royal Mail of a change of address, an official Royal Mail redirection needs to be set up. This can be arranged on the Royal Mail website.

Electoral Register: In order to change an address on the electoral register, a person must re-register to vote on the UK Government's website.

N.B. It is not necessary to inform the Passport Office of a change of address.
