No I am told by Evan and Greaves that they do not keep a copy of a name change forms in its files its the clients resposibility to keep a copy of the change of name deed form
The old solicitors tell me all I need to do is obtain a new form from a solicitor and sign it
However it is of little conseuqence in this case because essentially what they have told you is correct in that all you need to do is sign a new deed poll which includes a declaration that you changed your name on [Date] and that you have been using that name for all purposes since that date.
This is what I wish to do
Yes I want you to prepare prepare the document on your firms name and sign the deed explaining that i have used the change of name since 1209
