Letter of Confirmation

Letters of confirmation are used by individuals, organizations and businesses every day, for a number of different purposes. Broadly speaking they are used to recognize a previous agreement or to verify certain information upon request.


For example an employer would send a job applicant a letter confirming the date and time of an interview. Likewise it is common for the job applicant to respond with their own letter confirming that they will be attending the interview and look forward to it.


An employer may also send letters to current employees certifying their employment, should the employee need this for some kind of application. Similarly a landlord might write a letter verifying a tenant’s residence, if the tenant is applying for a loan.


You may also need to provide a letter confirming martial status in instances such as immigration, and a business may send a letter confirming the order of supplies by another business.


There are an infinite number of scenarios that may benefit from a letter of confirmation, but some popular examples are given below.


Starting to Write


Be brief, remember you are confirming information not necessarily sharing information.


If you are verifying something formal like somebody’s position in a company, sign the letter to reflect this.


Be clear and accurate about what is being confirmed. Make a note of dates, times, places and official titles.


A letter of confirmation is not necessarily an agreement or contract, but it can be used to confirm information relating to a prior agreement or contract.
