Change of Name

If you decide to change your name, QualitySolicitors Howlett Clarke can help you to do this legally and properly.

People change their name for a variety of reasons. What the law thinks of this is simple. A name change is acceptable unless it seeks to defraud or has some criminal benefit. Simply asking others to call you by your new name could work. A deed poll or statutory declaration is more sensible as other parties and authorities accept more readily a legal document than just your word.

QualitySolicitors Howlett Clarke can help you change your name simply and easily. A change of name deed is drawn up by one of our expert lawyers and the proper procedure carried out to ensure its legal status. If there are any associated matters to the change of name deed, we can discuss this at the time. You may wish to change the surnames of your children if they are of a certain age. This requires certain consents but we explain this simply, using plain English.


  • When looking at change of name for adults, we charge a rate of £150 (+VAT) for a simple change of name.
  • With regards children, we would be able to advise you fully of what’s involved, the procedure and costs under our ‘Ask the Legal Expert’ appointments.

We are able to offer this at both our Brighton and Southwick office. To begin the process of changing your name legally, call us today on 01273 838 756.
