eritage Titles is located in the rolling English countryside, nestling in the beautiful and ancient village of Steyning, in the county of West Sussex. We provide services to clientele world-wide, as well as in the United Kingdom of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Heritage Titles offers a select few the chance to obtain a legal Title enabling the owner to use the title wherever they go, with the knowledge that they are genuinely a Lord of the Manor (or Lady of the Manor). Our selection of titles is unique to us and has not passed through prior hands with a consequent increase in price. We have many satisfied clients and are pleased to offer a full money back guarantee.
e offer a range of title services which enable our clients to use the title of Lord of the Manor, Lady of the Manor or Baron. Our company's service is based on the fact that the English Legal system allows titles to be claimed and registered, if it can be proved that there are no living descendants or heirs to the title in question. Technically, we are able to register a "Lordship title", which can be sold on for a fee. We make extensive searches of records and archives to ensure that the Titles can be sold, and you can be sure that the Titles are sound.
Our procedure has been checked by English and American Solicitors / Lawyers with drafted documentation. Legal opinion has also been given by an U.K. Barrister and therefore covered by chambers liability insurance underwritten by the Law Society of Great Britain.
here are many other titles in England, such as Earl and Knight, but these can usually only be granted by government or Royal decree. Whilst the title of Lord of the Manor can be purchased, this does nothing to diminish the kudos or validity of a Title purchased through Heritage Titles.
Prices start from £4,000 per title, with prices depending on the history and Manor name. Please contact us to find out about currently available titles. We will let you know in more detail about how to order the title of your choice.
ur Titles are based on thorough historical research, backed by legal ownership documentation processed through lawyers. All our Titles are inheritable, and can be conveyed, transferred or resold. In English Law the holding of a lordship of the manor is treated as being separate from the actual lands of the manor, although in very rare cases the title may confer some rights associated with the Manor, such as land use or mineral rights. The title of Lord of the Manor is regarded as being an "incorporeal hereditament" (an inheritable property that has no explicit tie to the physical Manor itself) and is thus capable of being sold and purchased as property in its own right.
The claimed rights refer to the use of the styled titled name or legend of a bygone Lordship of the Manor once held by means of Copyhold. (Copyhold was abolished in 1922. Manorial rights are attached to land ownership and consequently the right to the use of the styled titled name or legend is the only right remaining if no land is included).
Guarantee: Every effort is made by our dedicated team of researchers and Solicitors to ensure the validity and accuracy of all title transactions, by means of thorough searches of all data available at the time of processing. We guarantee that in the extremely unlikely event that a title should be the subject of a prior claim, we will give the purchaser a full refund, and as a gesture of goodwill (without prejudice) another title of equal status at 50% of the retail value, & free of solicitor transfer charges.
