"Affidavit of Residence Form"

What Is an Affidavit of Residence?

An Affidavit of Residence is a legal document completed by an individual to confirm their residence - a permanent place of living - under oath. This statement is useful in a variety of circumstances - for example, you may have to verify your residence to register a child in school, apply for a new driver's license, confirm your residence for a court or entity, or verify the address of a parent for a child support matter. Additionally, you may have to verify the residency of a deceased individual to manage their property and assets submitting the affidavit to a financial institution that will release the deceased's funds and accounts.

Alternate Name:

  • Proof of Residency Letter.

How to Write an Affidavit of Residence?

Before you start drafting an affidavit, learn the requirements of this document and applicable laws. For instance, a Landlord Affidavit of Residence that confirms an individual has been living in a certain place for a period of time must be signed by the landlord as well, and some institutions will ask you to notarize the affidavit.

Follow these steps to compose a proper Residence Affidavit:

  1. Write down your full name and contact information - mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address.
  2. Address the individual, entity, or institution that requested the affidavit.
  3. Certify your address. Make sure you provide a full address and record the length of time you have lived at this residence. If there are other people in your household, whether they are your family members or neighbors, identify them and obtain their signatures to add more weight to your affidavit.
  4. Confirm the information in the document is true and correct, sign and date the affidavit - do it in the notary's presence if required. Save a copy of the document for your records and give the original copy to the requester. It is recommended to send the affidavit by certified mail to obtain an official receipt that proves you mailed the affidavit.

How do I Prove Residency If I Just Moved?

Often you have to prove your residency as soon as you move which means you do not possess any official documentation to demonstrate your address - you just rented the apartment or have moved from one house to another last week. You may fill out an Affidavit Proof of Residence and present it along with valid photo identification, for example, a driver's license, even from another state. However, if for some reason an Affidavit of Residence is not enough, there are other acceptable documents that confirm your place of residence - mortgage documentation, property deed or another purchasing contract, home or apartment lease, utility bills, tax documentation from the most recent report year, and college enrollment papers. You can also register to vote and update bank account details and credit card billing address when you move.
