Seen slightly cheaper Deed Polls supplied by e-mail for you to print?
A Deed of Change of Name is something to be proud of and is a document you will need to keep for many years. Deeds from Changing Names are printed for you on high quality textured vellum, carry our company seal and are sent to you by first class mail.
Why accept an inferior Deed Poll?
Deed Polls are also available from the UK Government. HM Courts & Tribunals Service supply an “enrolled” form of Deed Poll and these cost in total far in excess of £100 when the cost of the needed Statutory Declaration is included. A Deed Poll from the Changing Names Company is in every way just as acceptable for changing your name or the name of your child and we guarantee they will be accepted. It is not legally or practically necessary to enrol your Deed Poll. Doing so adds considerably to the time taken and to the cost of changing your name.
However, if you would like to know more about the government process, please follow this link.
We suggest you start by reading the PDF document titled Enrolling a Name Change in the Royal Courts of Justice with the reference of LOC019.
You will soon understand why more ‘un-enrolled’ Deeds are currently issued each year than the number of enrolled Deeds issued by the government in total since 1851.
