Deed of Change of Name

This document can be used to formally change your name and have the change officially recognised by any institutions or authorities.

People change their names for all kinds of reasons, and yet many are confused over the exact processes involved in doing so. The fact is that you don’t need to pay a lawyer or organisation if you want to change your name – you can simply insist on being called by the new name from now on, and that’s all that’s required.

However, many of the more bureaucratic institutions like banks or government agencies may insist on a more formal declaration, which is where a deed of change of name – commonly known as a deed poll – can come in useful.

Our deed of change of name is perfect for this purpose. It's simple to complete and write, and is composed by legal experts, so why not download it right now?
