Letter of acknowledgement
Letter of acknowledgment provides proof that receiver has received specific documents or a request. Letters of acknowledgment are often used for anything involved in a legal process. As it is formal letter it should have proper structure and content.
The typical letter of acknowledgment would consist of:
- Name and address of sender,
- Date and place,
- Receiver address,
- Information about case (e.g. case number),
- Opening salutation,
- Opening phrase, e.g.:
- I hereby acknowledge the receipt of the following documents...
- I am acknowledging receipt of...
- We will make sure that the person responsible receives these materials...
- Additional information, e.g.: If I may be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me
- Closing: Sincerely, Joe Lynch, Company X
It is necessary to specify what you are acknowledging. Too general or imprecise statement can be a source of problems in future legal process (e.g. someone thinks that you received document which was not attached).
