Certified/Legalised/Duplicate Copies – Can I use a photocopy of my Deed Poll to notify banks and other organisations of my name change?

It is unlikely that your bank or building society will accept a photocopy of your Deed Poll.  This is why we advise that you order at least 10 duplicate copies of your Deed Poll when you apply.  Otherwise, updating your records with all relevant record-holders will take much longer, as you will always have to wait for your Deed Poll to be returned, before you can send it to the next record-holder.
