Legal Name Change by Deed Poll

If your name change is not from marriage or divorce, then you need a deed poll. We recommend ordering your deed poll online, as it only takes a few days and costs under £10.

It’s time consuming to update all your account and identification, which is where Easy Name Change guarantees to save you hours! We provide personalised and ready to send name change notifications from across several hundred UK organisations!

Choose which organisations you need to notify and get personalised and ready to send forms, letters and emails. Attach your deed poll and send!

A deed poll gives you total flexibility in choosing a new name. You can change given name/s, your surname or all names, add or drop a name. You may change the spelling or order of your names.

You can’t change names to deceive anyone or escape debt. While there are no laws on illegal names, it should be a reasonable name that can be pronounced, spelled and does not infringe on a copyrighted name or famous name. If your name is confusing you may find it difficult to have it accepted on your official identification, like your passport or driving licence.

Deed polls are easily accessible and reasonably priced in the UK. Expect to pay about £10 to £15 for your deed poll. You can also expect to have fees for a new passport, which may be up to £93.

Check our legal name change cost page for a more detailed breakdown of all the charges that you can expect when legally changing your name by deed poll.

Getting a deed poll with your new name is only half the work. It’s your responsibility to ensure all identification, accounts, memberships and records are changed over to your new legal name within a reasonable time. Easy Name Change saves weeks of research and paperwork with our ready to send name change notifications. Simply select the organisations you need to update and we provide all corresponding paperwork and lodgement details. Just attach your deed poll, sign and send!

Although unusual, your name change could be refused by either the issuer of the deed poll or entities that issue identification.

If you have elected to use a confusing or copyrighted name the deed poll company may choose not to issue your deed poll. If you have successful been issued a deed poll it is still possible that the passports office could reject your name change, so take care when choosing your new name and ensure your new name is reasonable.

You can be known by any name, but to get identification and records changed you need proof, like a deed poll. These are inexpensive and issued quickly, although getting records updated by yourself can be slow.
