What is a Deed Poll?

A Deed Poll is a legal document and is a form of legal contract, however differs from legal contracts between two or more parties in that it only concerns one person and requires that person's signature in the presence of a witness. The Deed Poll legally binds the person who signs it to a course of action detailed within the Deed Poll document.

A Deed Poll for a change of name contains three declarations and by executing the Deed Poll (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 to address you by your new name only

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.
