DEED ago 19 leaflet A6

A Deed of Change of Name (more commonly known as a Deed Poll) is a written legal document (signed in the presence of a witness) that signifies a person’s consent to three important declarations. These declarations include the abandonment of the former name of the person and the use of a new name for all future documents, records, salutations and correspondences. The polls trace back to the mid-19th Century when they were first used for a declaring a change of name.

Can I apply from abroad?

Currently, Baraka UK Deed Poll Service is only available for UK residents.

I am not British. Can I apply?

Baraka UK Deed Poll Service is available for all UK residents. However, if you are a foreign national who are living in the UK, you should be aware that changing your name by Deed Poll will only be effective as regards your documents and records in the UK. In order to update your passport, documents and records in your country of origin, you will have to follow the procedure required by your Government. For instance, they may require your Deed Poll to be witnessed by a solicitor, or “legalised”, then translated. Our Certified Translations Service is available for your Deed Poll to be translated to Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Arabic. Please check with your Consulate what is the procedure required in your home country.

Can I change my child’s name?

We are currently only able to supply Deed Polls to Adult applicants (+18)

What about changing gender?

Changing one’s gender is much more complex than only changing one’s name or surname by Deed Poll.
Throughout the United Kingdom, if you want your acquired gender to be legally recognised, you need to apply to the Gender Recognition Panel for a Gender Recognition Certificate.
Transgender people may want to apply for a Statutory Declaration for Change of Name, which is a document declaring one’s name change, similar to a Deed Poll. The difference however is that a Statutory Declaration is created and signed in the presence of a UK Solicitor, Notary Public or anyone who is authorised by law to hear it. If you want to instruct a lawyer, you can find a Solicitor accredited by the Law Society.
