Can I use Tippex/correction fluid to correct a mistake I made on my Deed Poll?

No, you cannot use Tippex/correction fluid on your Deed Poll without invalidating it.  This is because those organisations that you need to notify of your change of name, may not accept that a Deed Poll in such a condition is acceptable evidence of your change of name.  If there is a mistake in the way that you have executed (this means signed, dated and witnessed) your Deed Poll, then you should destroy it.   However, if you ordered duplicate copies from us, you can use these as originals, provided that there is no mistake on these copies.  If you have made the same mistake on your Deed Poll and all of the duplicate copies, you will have to destroy them and apply for a new Deed Poll from us.
