Q: How can I get in contact with Scotland Title?
You can go directly to https://scotlandtitle.com/contact-us/ for questions or send an email directly to email@example.com
Q: Can I have my plots next to each other?
Yes. As long as the plots are the same size, then all the plots you order at the same time will be next to each other. Any plots ordered later may be part of a different block, though they will be close by.
Q: Can I buy a plot as a gift for someone else?
Yes. When you place your order you will need to fill in the details of the recipient. This can be any name that you like.
Q: How do I redeem my voucher code/retail pack registration code?
Please visit www.scotlandtitle.com and enter the code exactly as it appears on your voucher/registration card.
Q: I had to specify a date on the certificate. Will you send the certificate now or later?
We will print any date you choose on the Personalised Certificate. All orders are dispatched within 48 hours. The majority of orders are dispatched within 24 hours.
Q: Can I visit the land and can I do with the land?
As a new Laird, you can come and find your plot, you are free to walk, picnic, take a photograph of your Estate, and much more!
Q: How will I know which plot is mine?
The overall estate is defined using Google Map coordinates to the centre. Each plot of land has it’s own unique reference number, and we maintain a comprehensive register. It is challenging to exactly find the souvenir plots, even if using the latest technology. The plots of land are not specifically marked out, however you are free to delineate it yourself with biodegradable material, painted rocks or similar.
Q: Can I build on my plot?
Every Lordship or Ladyship title pack contributes to the preservation and protection of woodland areas in Scotland. As the intention is for the land to be kept in its natural state, we ask that all interested parties do bear this in mind.
Q: Can I plant a flag or leave a memento on my plot?
Whilst many Lairds enjoy planting a flag or leaving a memento on their plot, we respectfully request that only biodegradable items are used. Of course, if you want to plant a flag for the purposes of taking a photograph you may do so. We have regular ‘clean ups’ of items that have been left behind, but prefer that anything you bring into the reserve that is not biodegradable is removed to keep our reserve natural and litter free.
Q: Where will they plant the trees?
We work together with charitable organisations such as the UK Woodland Trust Tree Charter, One Tree Planted, and Trees For The Future. We donate to these charities and they will plant the trees in the UK and behond. Together, we are committed to conserving and restoring forests and planting trees, making a positive impact on the environment.
Q: Can more than one person buy the same plot of land?
No. Only one person can legally hold the right to a souvenir plot of land.
If you order two plots of the same size, the plots will be next to each other and each plot can have a different owner.
Q: Can I change the name on my bank account, credit cards etc?
Many of our customers decide to ask their bank to add their new title to their bank account and their credit cards. We include in each gift pack the Master Title Deed, accepted in many jurisdictions internationally which recognise Deed Poll documents. The Master Title Deed may be used to confirm your new title to your bank and even government agencies. Where local law permits, this will enable you to change the title on documents to Laird, Lord or Lady.
Please note that government documents which do not display any title, such as all passports and in some jurisdictions your drivers licence, cannot be changed.
Q: My bank has refused to recognise my master title deed. What should I do now?
Simply inform your bank that your Master Title Deed is a Deed Poll, and that you are notifying them that you have changed your name or title. No bank – or any other agency for that matter – has any say in your change of name or title.
Q: What is a master title deed?
The Master Title Deed is a Deed Poll. The most common type of Deed Poll is a legal document that provides evidence of your wish to change your name. Deed Polls are most commonly used in cases of marriage or divorce when effecting a change from Miss to Mrs or vice versa. The Master Title Deed asserts your right to take a new title. It can also be used to change your name.
Owners of a small Scottish estate have every right to adopt the title of Laird, Lord, or Lady. The Master Title Deed gives effect to your choice.
Deed Polls need not be used in Scotland and some other jurisdictions. As this may vary country to country, we would advise you look into it in your country of residence.
Q: How can you sell me a title?
We cannot sell you a title. We are simply acknowledging your right to use the title of Laird, Lord or Lady, which is trademarked by Scotland Title. If you prefer not to assume a title, you will be given that option when you make your land purchase. Advice published by Scottish Solicitors is “in Scotland anyone can, subject to requirements of good faith, call themselves whatever they like, including “Laird”, “Lord” or “Lady“.” We do not know of any jurisdiction where this is not true.
*Please be aware that you cannot buy a noble title. This is for enjoyment purpose only and you will obtain a personal right to a souvenir plot of land.
Q: Do you have to be a certain age?
No. Anyone can place an order, and anyone can receive a gift pack.
Q: Must I register my land?
No. You cannot register your land, because this is such a small plot; specifically it is defined as a “souvenir plot”.
‘Souvenir’ plots of land have been sold in Scotland for over 30 years. The sale of these plots is governed by the Land Registration (Scotland) Act 1979, recently revised as the Land Registration etc. (Scotland) Act 2012. Please note that this act does not permit souvenir plots of land to be added to the Land Register.
Details of your personal rights in your plot will be recorded in a Register of Land maintained by Scotland Title and details of each plot can be viewed online.
Q: Are there any hidden charges, taxes, or future payments to make?
No. There are no land taxes in Scotland and absolutely no other costs associated with this land. We maintain public liability insurance over the entire wood which will continue in force after your purchase. You will have no further expense to pay after the initial purchase price.
Q: Is payment made securely?
Yes. All payments are made through Checkout.com which is authorised and regulated as a Payment institution by the UK Financial Conduct Authority.
Q: My payment did not go through. How can I pay?
