What I do is start them as a completely new person under the new name and under the old name do a custom FACT:
"On xxxx he ceased to use his birth surname and assumed the surname "_____". See [insert new full name] for details after the date."

I also put a custom FACT in the new person:
"Born as XXXXX but assumed the surname on xxxx. See {insert old name] for details before this date.
