Name of the game

We went to the solicitors today to have my change of name deed notarised.  He said he would have preferred a statutory declaration or a deed poll but was happy to sign it and provide certified copies.  I know that this document works as Chris used it to change her name.

First job was to go the bank and get the accounts updated.  TSB and Santander were great – very respectful and no problems whatsoever.  The Royal Bank of Scotland was something else.  The guy was obviously uncomfortable and disappeared for ages.  He came back and told me that the bank might not change my name because the deed wasn’t an official government document with a serial number.  Not sure how I kept my temper but I suggested that if the bank didn’t change my name then I would close the account.  Apparently this resolves any issues with missing serial numbers……
