Change your name for only £29.99!
In the United Kingdom, anyone aged 16 years and over can be known by any name they choose just by simply using it. However, should you wish to change your name and get all your documents changed, for example, your passport, property deeds and records such as income tax, national insurance, bank accounts, credit cards etc., you need to provide documentary evidence that you have changed your name.
A Deed Poll provides the documentary evidence required so that everyone you have dealings with must change their records without question (although you cannot get your birth, marriage, adoption or decree absolute certificates changed).
If you are 18 years of age or over and wish to change your name (or your children’s names) by Deed Poll, you can use our fast and convenient on line service. Your Deed Poll will be individually drawn up and executed by our solicitors. No visit to a solicitor (or anyone else) is required.
If you are a foreign national living in the United Kingdom, you can use a Deed Poll to have your name changed on records and documents held in the United Kingdom. However, it is unlikely that your own country will recognise a Deed Poll so you will not be able to get your passport or any records and documents changed in your own country.
