Do I need to return the signed Deed Poll to you? - UK Deed Poll Office

Do I need to return the signed Deed Poll to you?

  • No, as soon as your Deed Poll has been signed and witnessed in accordance with our Terms & Conditions, it is a valid change of name deed.  You will need to write to all relevant record holders to inform them of your change of name.  We will, along with your Deed Poll, send you a list of all record holders that you may wish to notify.  For further information, please go to the Deed Poll Information list at the top left of this page, and click on “Who Do I Tell?”
  • You should always keep your original Deed Poll safe, to provide evidence of your change of name.  We suggest that you keep your Deed Poll with your Birth Certificate.
