Example Change of Name Deed (Deed Poll)

What is a Deed Poll?

A Deed Poll is a type of legal document. It is a form of legal contract but it differs from most legal contracts in that it only concerns one person rather than being a legal arrangement between two or more parties.

A Deed Poll legally binds the person who signs it to a particular course of action as detailed in the Deed Poll document.

What is a Change of Name Deed? (Deed Poll)

Deed polls can be used for a number of activities but are more commonly used in England and Wales for the purpose of changing a name or names.

A Deed Poll for the purposes of changing a name contains three declarations and by signing, dating and having your signing witnessed you are legally committing yourself to:

• Abandoning the use of your former name;

• Using your new name only at all times;

• Requiring all persons or organisations to address you by your new name only.

Although there is no set format for a deed poll, many organisations have different rules about the wording and presentation of the document.
We ensure that every deed poll complies with the wording and policies of all major organisations. If you find that your deed poll is not accepted, then we will amend it to comply with any unusual rules or policies.
You can apply online today and receive your deed poll documents within 1-2 working days. From just £14.99 we provide a low cost, but high quality deed poll service.
