Our Deed Polls are guaranteed to be accepted by all UK government departments, companies and organisations enabling you to get all your official documents and records changed to your new name including your passport, driving licence, bank and building society accounts, credit cards, medical, tax and National Insurance records etc.*

However, should you wish to consider making your name change public record by enrolling (registering) your Deed Poll with the government’s Ministry of Justice, to whom we are not affiliated, please read our article “Is a Deed Poll registered anywhere?“. The article shows the advantages of using our service are as follows:

  • Anyone living in the United Kingdom can apply to us regardless of nationality and country of birth. British citizens living overseas can also apply.
  • If you are separated and wish to revert to your maiden name, we do not require your husband’s written consent.
  • Our service is confidential so we will not make your personal details available to the public.
  • We do not require someone to confirm your identity who has known you for at least 10 years and owns property in the UK.
  • You can have your Deed Poll documentation posted to you as soon as the same day you apply for next working day delivery.
  • Our fee is considerably lower than the fees payable to the Ministry of Justice and a solicitor.

We have made our service as quick and simple as possible and there are four ways you can apply. You can apply by post, by phone or online, in which case your Deed Poll documentation will be delivered to your door using your chosen delivery service. You can also apply in person at our offices in Freebournes Court, Witham, Essex and use our Premium service, where we will issue your Deed Poll documentation within the hour.
