Change of personal name not allowed without enrolled deed poll


#1

So when I got married, we both changed our names so they were double barrelled.

I sent off the deed poll to everyone, and it was accepted no problem at all. Changed passport, driving licence, mortgage everything.

Have come to change my name on Tide, and it turns out you won’t accept an unenrolled deed poll. So while everyone else has accepted the free one, I now have two options:

Spend time and money enrolling a deed poll for this one single purpose.

Or open a new bank account elsewhere for free.

Can you guess which option I’ll be using?
