Question

What should I do when a legal name on a Deed has changed (i.e. due to marriage, legal name change)? 

 

Answer

Generally, a change of name may be acknowledged by the Trustee of the Trust at a meeting after receiving, for example, a change of name or marriage certificate. 

 

However, we understand that sometimes third parties (like banks) have their own internal policies requiring you to produce documentation in the form of a deed to confirm the change of name. If this is the case, email legal@nowinfinity.com.au to be referred to our legal services provider who can assist on a fee-for-service basis.
