Change of Name Deed

Main Content

There are two ways of making a name change official, outside of marriage and civil partnerships or upon a divorce. A Deed Poll or a Change of Name Deed. A Change of Name Deed is a legal document put in place by a solicitor which we can assist you with.

One of the main advantages of having a solicitor prepare a Change of Name Deed is the certainty of knowing the correct process has been followed and the name change will take effect.



The Process Involved With A Change of Name Deed


The process is usually very straightforward. We will want your basic details: your current name, your new name and your address. We will also ask you the reason for the name change, as the process cannot continue if you are trying to escape debts or criminal liability. 

If the Change of Name Deed is for a child, we will ask for the consent of everyone who has parental responsibility for that child, as this is required for a minor.

Once you have provided this information, we will prepare your Change of Name Deed for signature.

Client testimonials

  • We decided to use a local solicitor for our recent house sale and purchase. Despite it becoming a much more complex and pro longed matter. Christopher Taylor provided excellent service throughout his advice was clear and concise and he always found time to talk through options and next steps. He dealt very well with the less than helpful solicitors used by the other parties too. Highly recommend.
