When they are professionally and legally drafted a Deed Poll for a change of name contains three declarations. By ‘executing’ the Deed Poll (i.e. signing, dating and having your signature witnessed by persons who are not related) you are legally committing yourself to:
Abandoning the use of your former name
Using your new name only and at all times from that moment onwards
Requiring all persons to address you by your new name at all times
Importantly all of the Deed Poll services we provide at Legal Deed Polls have our certified seal on with our company name and number on.
In summary, a Deed Poll issued by us provides documentary evidence that you have legally changed your name. As a result our Deed Polls allow you to change all your official documents and records to your new name.
At Legal-Deedpoll our Deed Poll documents are recognised by all government departments, companies and organisations throughout the United Kingdom. Our Deed Polls are also recognised by British Embassies.
