Hi Dan

I was about to pay about 100GBP for the official deed poll that is linked from direct.gov (the Royal Courts of Justice one), but then I found the link to your website below. You seem like a clever guy to figure this all out and very kind to the effort of making this.

I’ve read your free deed poll guidance and I’m still worried that things are *this* easy. I compared the official deed poll form and they are pretty restrictive about who can be a witness. They ask for someone who is not your family, owns their own home in the UK, and who has known you for 10 years. I am wondering if there are any legal requirements for who can be a witness on other types of deed poll like this free one you have made?

Thanks a million again
