Yes, your Title will be legally yours and last all your life. The professional and legal service Elite Titles provides is possible by using a legally recognised "Deed" (written in English). Under International and English Law: "You have the right to call yourself, and be known as anything you like" provided there is no fraudulent intention in the process of any such changes to a person's identity.
In addition, before offering the Seated Title service the whole process was scrutinised by lawyers specialising in English Common Law relating to names, Titles and Copyright as well as all aspects of Real Estate and Land Law. Please remember, we deal with an official Government agency in these matters and clearly, they (HM Land Registry) would not be party to anything illegal.
Yes, you can change your driving licence, passport, credit cards and bank accounts to show your new effective Title. (We show you the simplest way to do this when you receive the documents).
Seated Title & Lord of the Manor Title - 18 years old.
Elite Title - 16 years old. However if you are under 16 years old you can still have an Elite Title but we will need both your parents' details as they need to consent to you having the Title. Please contact us if you are under 16 years old BEFORE purchasing.
No we do not - for the simple reason 'Laird' itself is not a title but rather a descriptive word that simply means 'landlord'. Given, for example, that a land owner in Scotland sublet his land to a tenant then that land owner would clearly become the tenant's 'landlord' - or 'laird' as a landlord is called in Scotland. A different descriptive name but with both 'laird' and 'landlord' meaning exactly the same thing. Simply owning land in Scotland does not make the owner of that land a landlord/laird as this land is not sublet to a tenant. Anyone who may purchase a souvenir land plot in Scotland does not automatically become a 'landlord' and so clearly, cannot style himself as a 'laird' - irrespective as to what the vendors of such bogus 'titles' may claim.
No, you don't have to live in the UK or be a British citizen. We supply Titles to clients all around the World.
Elite Title: Just the Title (Lord, Lady, etc) before your name. EG. Lord John Smith. When you die so does the Title.
Seated Title: Title (Lord, Lady, etc) before your name and "of somewhere" after it. EG. Lord John Smith of Westminster. On death you can leave the land (bequeathed in your Will) to a beneficiary who can take on the Title if they wish.
Lord of the Manor Title: Title (Lord, Lady, etc) before your name and "of the Manor of somewhere" after it. EG. Lord John Smith of the Manor of Westminster. On death you can leave the land (bequeathed in your Will) to a beneficiary who can take on the Title if they wish.
Yes you can. We will allow a full credit for the fee you paid for the Elite Title(s). Please contact us for a quote.
Clearly, both are titles but, and just as clearly, they are both different titles. With a Seated Title the title of Duke, for example, is very different from that say of Earl, Baron or Lord and whilst all are titles, they are all different titles - with which one being chosen at the discretion of the individual. Likewise, both Seated Titles and Lord of the Manor Titles are simply different titles and, once again, which one might be chosen is at the discretion of the individual.
1. If you wanted your wife or children to have a Title like yourself, you would need their consent; unless in the case of children under 16 years old, where you act as the parental guardian and sign on their behalf.
2. These Titles are not to be used to commit Fraud or Mislead with intent to commit any offence, or obtain money by deception. They are for show purposes only; just like you can put personalised number plates on your car legally for show purposes.
The land plot is just 20cm x 20cm (approx 8 inches x 8 inches).
No, the land plot is too small!

Elite Title - No, it is yours for life and die with you.
Seated Title - Seated Title - Yes, however due to the rather complicated legal procedure you may find this difficult if you attempted to do it without legal advice.
Lord of the Manor Title - Yes, these can be sold by way of conveyance but, once again, due to the complicated legal nature of the sale you are advised to take legal advice. I would remind you that the value of your Manor Title may greatly increase in value after the 15 year waiting period mentioned in the sales particulars.
Elite Title - No.
Seated Title - Yes, the land is "Real Property" and so can be bequeathed as with any other property.
Lord of the Manor Title - Yes, the land is "real property" and can be bequeathed as with any other property – with the Land Registry Title Information Document being proof of ownership. The Lord/Lady of the Manor Titles can also be bequeathed – with the Deed of Conveyance being the proof of ownership.

Yes, whether male or female you can purchase a single Seated Title (the price is the same).
If you are "Partnered" and do not share the same surname, that is alright too, just make your surnames clear on the application form.
No problem, the second applicant can be the same sex. It is not custom and practice to have two Lords of the Manor though.
If you buy the Seated Title or Lord of the Manor then when you get married there is no charge for us to draw up the appropriate documents for your wife/husband, if they wish to take the Title of Lady, etc.
If you buy a single Elite non-seated Title then there will be a small fee of £104+post for us to draw up the appropriate papers. (That is the difference in fee between single and pair of Titles.) Just get in touch nearer the "Big Day"!

"Just wanted to thank you for organising this gift. I love that you dated the Certificate (for the party date)! Such a nice idea. And xxx and xxx loved the gift. They thought it quintessentially English, a great memory of their 15 years in the UK and something that would be a hit in America. Good luck with your business.
