How much does deed poll cost?

First, get your deed poll

Get a legally compliant deed poll with an online provider like At under £12, it's inexpensive and you'll have peace of mind knowing it will be accepted by all UK organisations. While you can find online deed poll templates for free online, you'll need to spend some time customising it and being sure you have the right template for your needs.


Fees for updating records

The main costs involved will be £75.50 for a replacement passport, if applicable. There is no charge to update the name on your driving license provided you can surrender your current license. Most organisations don't charge fees unless you need certificates or diplomas replaced.

How to update your records

It's your responsibility to contact each and every organisation where you hold an account, membership or identification and notify them of your new name. Organisations all set their own policy on name change, so sometimes you can do it over the phone, other times you will be required to send a form, visit a branch in person or send a letter with your original deed.  Researching name change procedures for all your organisations, finding forms, then creating notification letters and faxes usually takes 5-6 hours.
