Frequently Asked Questions

Can I legally call myself a Lord or Lady?

Yes, absolutely! Prestige Titles takes care of all the legalities and formalities involved in assigning your new title to you.

We will use 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.

Can I add the title to my personal documents?

Yes, we'll show you exactly how to do this within your welcome package.

You can change your driving licence, credit cards and bank accounts to show your new Prestige Title.

Please note that documents that do not display titles (such as passports) cannot be altered.

Do I have to live in the UK?

No, you can hold a Prestige Title anywhere in the world!

What happens if I get married?

In the event of a surname change due to marriage, we offer a free replacement service for the documentation including personalised title certificate & master title deed. 

Am I buying ownership of land?

No - it is a common myth that this is required in order to change your title!

Prestige Titles can offer such an affordable way to change your title because we operate 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.

Ownership of land is only required for Seated Titles (Lord & Lady of PLACE NAME). Prestige Titles are currently all non-seated.

What's the difference between a Non-Seated Prestige Title and a Seated Title or Lord of the Manor Title?

Supplied by Prestige Titles:

Prestige Title: The Title (Lord, Lady, etc) before your name. For example: Lord John Smith. The Title dies with you and isn't passed on.

Not currently supplied by Prestige Titles:

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.

Are there any guarantees?

We guarantee you will be able to adopt a title under present legislation and use such title(s) for show purposes.

How long does the process take?

We prepare the legal documents & despatch them to you within 24 hours of purchase (Monday to Friday). In addition to the legal documents, you will receive a Title Certificate suitable for framing.

Can I add a place name to the end of my title, e.g Lord xxx xxx of London?

No, this would not be possible for a Prestige Title as they are non-seated and therefore non-specific to any place name. Please only enter the name of the recipient.
