Sample Request Letter for Late Submission of Documents
54, Richmond Towers
Date: February 19th, 2022
Mr. Adam Jacob
Human Resource Manager
Sub: Request for Delay in Submission of Documents
I am writing this letter in reference to you letter dated January 30th, 2022. I would like to inform that there will be a delay in submitting my documents that were requested to complete the recruitment process for the profile of Marketing Executive with your company. This is because all my documents caught fire because of a fire breakout at my residence. Due to the accident, I have lost all important documents that include my educational and experience certificates.
Therefore, I am writing this letter to request you to consider my situation and grant me some more time as I am arranging for the duplicate copies of the same from the respective institutions. I have already submitted the request letters to my university as well as my previous companies to grant me a duplicate copy of my certificates and I shall receive the documents by the end of this week.
I hope you will understand my situation and will grant me an extension of time for submitting these documents.
Thank you for consideration.
