Updating Documents

Can I refer to myself as Lord or Lady?

Yes, the title pack is based on a historic English Lord of the Manor title that supports the legal right to use the honorific title Lord or Lady. Within most legal jurisdictions, should you wish to change your honorific title to Lord or Lady (Lord or Lady of the Manor) then you can change this at any time, provided you do not intend to deceive or defraud another person or purport your title to be a peerage. There is no legal procedure to follow; you simply start using your new title. However, there are some circumstances, for example, updating personal documents, when additional evidence of your title change may be requested. In such circumstances, you have the option to complete this deed statement to prove that your honorific title has changed.

Can I change my title on personal documents?

Yes, you can change your honorific title in most instances (this includes items such as stationery, tickets, reservations, membership cards, debit cards, credit cards, social media, employers, professional bodies etc). Please note, government documents which do not display any title such as all passports (and in some jurisdictions drivers licences) cannot be updated.

Do you guarantee title changes?

Many of our customers have successfully added their title to documents, however, we can offer no guarantee of this for any type of document as each institution is different and may have their own rules and regulations. The deed statement included in the title packs may be requested when making an official update. Please note you are under no obligation to complete the deed statement. Enssen (London) Ltd offers no assistance, guarantee, compensation, reimbursement, nor can make warranties or representations in respect to document changes or deed statement use.

Am I changing my title or first name?

Our title packs support the legal right to change your honorific title to Lord or Lady. This is not a change of first name.

What should I do first?

Every institution is different and we always suggest the first thing you do is to contact the relevant organisation directly and ask them what they require to make a title change. You can then proceed from there, depending on what information they have given you.

Can Lord Titles help with title changes?

Whilst we provide advice here, we do not offer direct support for any aspect of document changes. Should you wish to change your documents, this must be undertaken through your own initiative.

I am not English, is it possible to update my documents?

Other legal jurisdictions may permit document changes but this not something we guarantee or provide assistance with. You will need to contact the relevant organisation directly to see what they require and accept.

What is a deed statement?

There is a great deal of confusion about the role of deed poll. Many people incorrectly think that deed poll is an official Government office or similar where you go to register a change of name. This is not the case, as no such office exists. Deed poll is simply a legal process which enables a person to formally change his or her title or name. The deed statement provided is a short legal statement that formally communicates your desire to use the title and may be requested by some institutions. This is not something that can be disputed – the document is absolute because it’s your personal legal statement and your personal legal right. Each title pack contains a deed statement but there is no obligation to complete this.

How do I complete the deed statement?

Who should witness the deed statement?

Technically anyone can be a witness but we recommend someone who has known you for at least two years and is not a relative. Witnesses should be over 18.

Should I send my title pack forms anywhere to be officially registered?

No. We have already registered your title pack and no other registration is required. There are many companies claiming to be official Deed Poll organisations, however, Deed Poll is not a government department – that’s a common misapprehension as no such department exists. Deed Poll is a type of contract that can be used to enforce a personal name or title change. Therefore, please avoid using these companies as they do not represent any official registration authority.

Can I download a replacement deed statement?

Yes, you can. Simply click the download link below and then print the file (the file is in Adobe PDF format). Please note you are under no obligation to complete the deed statement. Enssen (London) Ltd offers no assistance, guarantee, compensation, reimbursement, nor can make warranties or representations in respect to document changes or deed statement use.

All walks, maps, descriptions and route data are provided in good faith, but must be regarded as approximate; we can make no guarantee as to their accuracy.

Such rights are for personal use only. Personal use means non-commercial use of the rights. The Honorific Title is derived from the bygone Manor of Hougun. The Honorific Title is not a peerage and cannot be employed to purport a peerage or to commit fraud or mislead with intent to commit any offence, or obtain money by deception.

Use of Honorific Title Rights

Within most legal jurisdictions, should The Title Pack Owner wish to adopt The Honorific Title or the abbreviated styled title of Lord or Lady, there is no legal procedure to follow. The Title Pack Owner simply starts using The Honorific Title or the abbreviated styled title of Lord or Lady. However, there are some circumstances, for example, updating personal documents or third-party data, when additional evidence of The Honorific Title may be requested. In such instances, The Title Pack Owner has the option to complete the deed poll document contained within The Title Pack. The Operator offers no guarantee, compensation, reimbursement, nor can make warranties or representations in respect to amending personal documentation or third-party data. The deed poll document is supplied as is and The Operator offers no support in this matter. The Title Pack Owner is under no obligation to complete the deed poll document and The Operator offers no guarantee, compensation, reimbursement, nor can make warranties or representations in respect to the deed poll document.

The Operator grants The Title Pack Owner five square feet of dedicated land within The Estate. The Title Pack Owner does not own the dedicated land and can make no claim on it other than it is dedicated and protected by The Operator in the name of the The Title Pack Owner. The dedication operates in perpetuity with the exception of unforeseen circumstances (such as compulsory purchase), whereupon, The Operator reserves the right to substitute an alternative estate, or make a proportional monetary donation to a United Kingdom registered charity supporting land conservation objectives. The Operator does not assign coordinates for the dedicated land. The dedicated land is not operated under charitable status. The Estate rights remain exclusively with The Operator and may not, except with our express written permission, be adopted, distributed, relicensed, sub-licensed, transferred, resold, restructured, repackaged or commercially exploited. The estate is open to any member of the public to walk in freely; its use and enjoyment not being restricted in any way. The Estate can be visited at anytime. Some of the paths in The Estate are quite steep and uneven so make sure you wear sensible shoes and we recommend the walk only for those in good health.

Each dedicated land area is dedicated once only. Dedicated land may not be used to carbon offset.

The Hougun Manor Crests

The Operator grants The Title Pack Owner a single non-exclusive perpetual personal-use license for the Hougun Manor Estate Crest and Hougun Manor Title Crest. This license is for personal use only. Personal use means non-commercial use of the rights. The crests are not registered with The College of Arms or any other heraldic governing body. The crests must not be registered with the College of Arms or any other heraldic governing body, employed to purport a heraldic coat of arms or to commit fraud or mislead with intent to commit any offence, or obtain money by deception. All ownership rights now and in the future, of and for The Hougun Manor crests remain exclusively with The Copyright Owner and may not, except with our express written permission, be adopted, distributed, relicensed, sub-licensed, transferred, resold, restructured, repackaged or commercially exploited.

The Documents

The Title Pack Owner can not be transferred to any other individual or passed down through inheritance. If you wish to change any aspect of the certificate once it has been printed, which requires an edited re-print, then you will be charged for that re-print. This charge will take into account the paper and printing costs, administration costs, and the postage and packing involved. There will be no charge however if the fault is ours. In general, the fulfilment materials will be sent to one person at one address only. Wording provided for certificates should not be contentious or likely to insult or defame The Operator or any third party. The Operator has the final say over any wording deemed inappropriate and our decision is binding.
