What is a Deed Poll?

A Deed Poll is a legal document and is a form of legal contract.

A Deed Poll for a change of name contains three declarations. By executing the Deed Poll (signing, dating and having your signing witnessed) you are legally committing yourself to:

  • Abandon the use of your former name
  • Use your new name only, at all times
  • Require all persons to address you by your new name only

Is a Deed Poll legally binding?

The Deed Poll legally binds the person who signs it to the above declarations which are detailed within the Deed Poll document.

Deed Polls correctly prepared and issued by UK Deed Poll provide documentary evidence that you have had your name legally changed. As a result of this, the Deed Poll document then gives you the ability to change all records and official documents to your new name.

A Deed Poll will not allow you to alter your birth, marriage or decree absolute certificates. It is also not possible to alter permanent records such as past examination certificates.

How does it work?

Order your Deed Poll

You can order your Deed Poll online using our secure service.

We prepare your Deed Poll document and then send it to you by your chosen delivery method with our Deed Poll pack.

The Deed Poll pack includes:

  • Instructions for execution
  • Suggested list of record and official document holders to contact
  • Example covering letter to contact record and official document holders

Execute your Deed Poll

Once you have received your Deed Poll document by post, you will then need to sign and date the document in the presence of an independent witness. If you are changing a child's name the Deed Poll must be signed on their behalf by someone with parental responsibility (usually the mother or father).

Once this has been done, you have executed your Deed Poll and your name has legally changed.

Use your new name

Your Deed Poll is now ready to use and you can start notifying all of the relevant companies, organisations and government departments to get all of your official documents and records changed to your new name.
