3.       PRICING

Lordship and Barony Titles are priced according to their desirability, prestige, and the work involved.  The pricing is at the discretion of Manorial Counsel Limited.  Manorial Counsel Limited offer a unique product and therefore no comparison can be made with any other product to influence its pricing.

4.       CONTRACT OF PURCHASE

Customers will apply to purchase a Lordship or Barony Title.  On receipt of their application and the payment Manorial Counsel Limited will prepare a contract of sale.  Upon receipt of the contract the customer may take whatever legal advice they deem appropriate.  To proceed with the purchase the customer must sign, and date the contract (both parties for joint names) and send it to Manorial Counsel Limited at their registered offices with any outstanding balance and their identification.

5.       TITLE RESERVATION

A non-refundable deposit of 20% of the purchase price of the Lordship or Barony Title is required at the time of reservation.  The reservation fee is non-refundable however it may be transferred to reserve another title of equal or less value, this is at our discretion.  If the revised title is less than the reserved title the amount paid will stand as the deposit for the new title.  If the revised title is more than the reserved title then the customer will need to increase the deposit to 20% of the price of the revised title.  Manorial Counsel Limited reserves the right to vary these conditions for individual circumstances.  A reservation will last for one month unless extended by Manorial Counsel Limited and will be lost if agreement is not reached.  Extensions will be at the discretion of Manorial Counsel Limited only.
