What is Executing a Deed Poll?

Once a Deed Poll is drafted, that is prepared, it needs to be executed. This simply means that the Deed Poll needs to be signed in the presence of a witness and dated. The witness also needs to sign and date the Deed Poll to confirm that you have sign the Deed Poll document in their presence.

Once the Deed Poll has been executed, i.e. is signed and dated, it is ready for use.  The executed Deed Poll document officially commits you to:

  • Renouncing and abandoning the use of your former name
  • Using your new name at all times, as your proper name
  • Requiring that everybody addresses you by your new name

When a Deed Poll is executed, it enables you to get all your records amended into your new name. These records include for example your passport, driving licence and bank details. You need to have your name details updated in all UK government departments, agencies, companies and organisations. You also need to change your name details held by financial institutions such as banks, card and mortgage companies. When you order a Deed Poll document we automatically send you an information pack with a large and fairly comprehensive list of who to contact in order to change your name details into your new name.
