Step 1

  • You select the Deed Poll documents you require
  • You complete the application form and make payment
  • You get an order confirmation email within 5 minutes of making the application
  • You receive the Deed Poll document order through the mail

Step 1 is generally completed within a few working days of you making your application online.  It results in your Deed Poll documents being issued to you by 1st class mail.


Step 2:

  • You execute the Deed Poll documents you receive from us, i.e. sign them and have the signing witnessed
  • You notify the name record holders of your change of name.  You do this by sending the executed (signed) Deed Poll document to them
  • They update their records with your new name and return your Deed Poll or legal copy back to you, so that you can use it again when necessary
  • You keep your Deed Poll documentation safe as evidence of your change of name for future reference

The period taken by Stage 2 may vary and depends upon a number of factors:

  • how many records you need to change over into your new name
  • how busy the name record holders are, such as the Passport Office, the DVLA, the bank etc.
  • how many legal copies you have, the more you have the faster it will be

Typically Step 2 can take from 2-6 weeks.  


How to Speed Things Up

You can significantly reduce the time taken in Step 2 by ordering a number of extra legal copies.  Once executed, i.e. signed, these legal copies can be used just as the Deed Poll itself. They can be sent to a number of name record holders at the same time, thus significantly reducing the overall time taken.

It also works out a lot cheaper getting the additional legal copies at the same time as your order your Deed Poll document!, rather than ordering them afterwards.

A name record holder is any company or organisation that legitimately holds records with your name, such as the government, banks, doctors etc.
