Letter of Notification

A letter of notification is sent to inform the recipient of important information. There are many scenarios where this is commonly used, including informing somebody that a lawsuit has been filed against them, giving notice to a landlord that you’re planning to move out, and letting various entities know that you’ve legally changed your name.


A letter of notification may also be used to inform companies or creditors that somebody has passed away, or to tell an immigration authority that you have gotten married, which could affect a visa application.


There are also many informal uses of this kind of letter, though they may not necessarily be officially titled as a “notification”.


Starting to Write


Be straight forward and brief to prevent confusion.


In certain cases you may need to provide notification of something several days in advance, such as moving out of a rented property.


Letters about a legal matter should be signed.

Your property has been left in pristine condition so I expect that the $1000 security deposit will be refunded promptly.
