Highland Titles Scam Exposed On Twitter By Real Lawyers

If you missed it, over the last couple of weeks there has been a Twitter storm where real lawyers and legal scholars challenged the claims made by Highland Titles. The main points of contention were whether or not buyers of Highland Titles souvenir land plots actually owned them, and whether or not buyers gained a title.

In the unanimous opinion of the lawyers and legal scholars, buyers do not own the souvenir plots sold by Highland Titles, nor do they gain any titles.

There is little point in me explaining the arguments as several others have already done so. I'll provide links to articles written by the lawyers and scholars involved and let them explain in their own words.

Highland Titles land sales demolished on Twitter as ‘legal bollocks’ on Commonspace.

If you bought a souvenir land plot in Scotland from Highland Titles and thought you actually ever owned it or gained any kind of title, isn't it about time you demanded your money back?
