The end result of a statutory declaration for changing your name and a deed poll are the same. However, using a statutory declaration to change your name is more expensive and harder to obtain. So what are some of the differences between a statutory declaration and a deed poll?
A Statutory Declaration is a statement that is signed in the presence of a UK solicitor or Notary Public. This declaration allows you to change your name with official organizations (banks, passports). Because it is a legal document, if you knowingly make a false declaration it could result in legal proceedings being taken against you.
All this gets very complicated and expensive (ever seen what solicitors charge) as compared to deed poll.
With our deed poll service, there is no need for you to go to any office, everything can be done from the comfort of your own home.
