Established Titles – Buyer Beware

You may have seen an advert promoting something called ‘Established Titles’ on Facebook or elsewhere, and perhaps you are wondering if they are legitimate or a scam?
We have done our own research.
What we know about Established Titles
- Established Titles trades from a website with no company name.
- There is no physical address on the website, or any clue about where the company might be incorporated, even though THIS IS A LEGAL REQUIREMENT.
- There is no evidence whatsoever that Established Titles (or whoever they are) actually own any land in Scotland. They claim to own some land in Dumfries and Galloway and Aberdeenshire, but since nobody knows their name, how can anyone check?
- The only named person on the website is Ms Katerina Yip, although this appears to be a spoof page written for the purposes of providing amusement rather than information for customers. There are no details of the company she owns or works for. Is she a real person?
- Although they are charging a hefty amount, the standard offering is only a downloadable certificate. Anything printed costs extra.
We will leave you to form your own conclusions, but given the lack of detail we would advise that potential customer exercise some caution.
