New title deeds has previous surname

Good morning guys

1)  I have 2 questions I need help with.  At long last I have completed on my flat yesterday and also received my deeds.  My father has a double barrel surname, my parents added one name to my B.C and the other on my passport. When I was young my father applied for a Cypriot id card and did not use my B.C but used my Passport instead. Growing up I was fed up with the confusion so I decided to change everything to what it is on my Birth Certificate including my Cyprus I.D and passport so all changed.  I received my new title deed but my previous surname is on the title deed but luckily they added my I.D number.  Would this cause any future problems? I need to switch on Electricity so thinking of taking my old I.D with my previous name on.

2) I am a single parent and live and breath for my child. I would really like to pass on my property via gift.  Should I mention this in my will or should I speak with the land registry office? What is the cheapest and simplest way of doing this? Really do not want to use same solicitor, he was extremely slow and I have ADHD so need a fast and straight to the point solicitor. 1f609.svg

I would suggest its safer to use a really good lawyer and would highly recommend one of these

It's not in Paphos it is in Paralimni. My estate agent said it was OK as the deeds has my id number on? I will take my old id and passport with me. The land registry added my previous name as it was on the national data base. The funny thing is I did use a lawer, he completed all for me. Why add my previous name on the deed and not my changed one though 🤔.

Thank you
