Sample letter informing about a new address


  1. When you are moving somewhere, you need to inform the concerned individuals. Post offices provide change-of-address cards, but it's better to write a letter if you have to convey some confidential information. You can also use this letter to cancel services.
  2. Tell the reader that you are moving. State the date, your new address, and new address.
  3. Inform the reader of your desire to cancel an account or service due to the move.
