What is the average price of a Deed Poll?

The cost of changing your name can vary. Whilst making a deed poll is free if you choose to create your own deed poll (which can be a task in itself), it does involve creating your own document and wording and sending this on to the correct Governmental department; this is both time-consuming and, unless you’re sending by recorded delivery, can be subject to delays or even deed polls that seemingly never arrive.

Alternatively you may choose to use the official governmental forms, rather than create your own deed poll.
In this event, the Government fee would be £36.

A note upon Child Deed Polls

Child Deed polls are more complex than adult deed polls, and in order to change the name of a person who is under the age of 18, you must:

- Have the agreement of everyone who holds parental responsibility; OR

- Hold a court order.

Similarly to adult deed polls, child deed polls cost £36 when using the governmental forms.
