Back Services for previous clients
Apply for a copy of your archived Deed Poll
(using our secure server)

If you returned your signed Deed Poll to us for archiving (as part of our Legal Copy and Archive Service), we can issue further legal copies from our archives.  The fee is 12 for the first legal copy and 2 each for any additional legal copies (e.g. the fee for three legal copies is 16).

Please note, there is a 12 search fee payable for this service, which is waived if your Deed Poll is in our archives or if you subsequently order a new Deed Poll.  Therefore, you will only pay the 12 search fee if your Deed Poll is not in our archives and you do not order a new Deed Poll.

If you ordered your Deed Poll from us before 2000, we will not have your Deed Poll archived because before this year our Legal Copy and Archive Service was not available.

We can only issue legal copies of a Deed Poll from our archives to the person named on the Deed Poll.  In the case of a child's Deed Poll, we can issue legal copies to anyone with parental responsibility for the child (evidence of having parental responsibility may be required).
