Hello and thank you for your question. I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practicing lawyer in England with over 10 years experience.
May I ask from whom you purchased the title please - was it a private seller or from some form of company?
Did you use a solicitor? have you been given a land folio number or seen any register of title?
Thanks. Is these a scheme which provides that you may use a Scottish title or did you purchase the land for investment purposes?
Thanks. I am familiar with such offerings. These are essentially novelty items offered for sale as novelty gifts. If you own some land in Scotland there is a historical informal practice of reference to that person as a "laird" (lord in English). This is not the same thing as being a peer of the realm (i.e. a member of the House of Lords). Ownership of the land is not given formally but is held by the land owner on your behalf under the terms of your contract.
The purchase of the land entitles you to use the term or terms specified in the terms and conditions which here from what you say would be "Lady of Chaol Ghleann" under a licence should you wish to use this title. The other party can withdrawn this licence at any time. It does not entitle you to call yourself "Lady [your name]".
Accordingly there is a legal contract between you and a company which appears to have rights to sell plots of land within a Scottish estate which in turn allows you to use the above title should you wish to. The contract does not give you formal legal title to the land which is registrable at the Scottish Land Registry. They are predominantly sold as novelty gift items rather than investment or for other purposes but there is a legal contract in place which underwrites your use of the title and nominal ownership of a plot of land.
You are allowed to use the title under a licence granted to you under the terms and conditions of your contract. In other words you have a contractual right (which the other party reserves the right to withdraw) to use the title. Accordingly there is a legal right for you to use the title within your contract.
Is there anything above I can clarify for you?
Quite so. Providing you use the Chaol Ghleann as part of the title you have a licence to use the title under contract.
Yes providing you use the title exactly as provided for in the terms as above it is. You cannot drop the Chaol Ghleann reference - i.e. call yourself "Lady Caroline". This could amount to fraud depending on the purpose you were using it for. But otherwise this is acceptable.
A pleasure. Yes providing you use the title exactly in the form provided you are able to do so under the terms of your contract you have purchased
