When a customer moves to another place, city or country for residential purposes either on permanent or temporary basis, he has the legal obligation and responsibility to inform the bank in which he has account about the change in his address. This is mandatory for the banks as they always keep in contact with their customers and if there is no person answering on an address, it can create problems for the banks. So the customers are required to write this change of address letter to the bank authorities when they move to someplace else.

Brief description of “change of address” letter to bank:

This is a very formal and professional letter that is usually kept very simple and concise. The key purpose of this letter is to inform the bank about the change of address from the customer so that if the bank needs to contact the customer, they can locate him after he has moved to some other place. There are usually two types of these change address letters; one in which the customers informs the bank about his new address and both the old and new addresses are given inside the content of the letter and the other type of letter in which the customer just informs the bank about the change in his address and as a proof, he needs to attach the official documents of old address and new address with the letter.

Sample “change of address” sample letter to bank:

To: senior manager

New York NY 35094

Subject: change of address

Date: 19 March 2015

Dear Sir,

I am using your bank for more than 3 years and I must say it was a good experience for me. I have tried many other banks in past but your services and staff members are good and friendly so I tend to use these services in future as well. Apparently, my company thought it would be funny to suddenly transfer me to another department in California and I have to report there in next week.

As you can see that I won’t be able to use the same address and have to change it in order to keep using your services so here I am, requesting you to change my address in your database so that you can track me and contact me whenever you need

I have attached the official document of my address and other contact information that the bank issued when I opened account and along with that, I have attached the new address slip as well. This is very important and as I am requesting within time, you can take 2 to 3 days to change the address as per your procedures but make sure to understand that after that, I won’t be here so you need to use my new address for contacting purposes.

I hope you will take some time and do it as soon as possible. Thank you for your time and I hope I didn’t cause you much trouble with this issue.
