Land Registry Fraud (no. 31)

Background

This is a case of criminal trespass, of a boundary dispute and of original title map deeds versus UK Land Registry General Boundaries. It is also of false claims, potential false address and the rich Claimant’s abuse of legal system.

Place of Crime – Kings Lynn, W. Norfolk England. Victim – 82 year old Lady and her Son, who has a spinal injury.

Case Summary

April 1 2009 – Claimants destroy old boundary fence, over 50m and plough 200sqm of Defendant’s Land. Replace fence with stronger poles and upright the pushed over straining post. Three times on 3 April, May and June, fence is broken, cut and finally ‘shredded’ as barbed wire replacement is cut into a 100 pieces of dangerous loops left on the garden. Pets & wildlife at risk.

Tractor driver says – ‘you are not using it, so we will’. Works for agent Velcourt on behalf of Eaubrink Farm GmbH. Show Victims deed map ownership to workers, Farm Manager and Director.

No letters or phone calls returned from Velcourt or local farm. Police called but they say – boundary dispute, it’s civil.

Lawyers from Velcourt, representing all Velcourt and Eaubrink GmbH accuse a 82 year old of trespass and building a fence on their land. Issue claim from Christian-F-Hansen Strasse 19 address in Hamburg. Mother and Son sued. He has heart attack on eve of hearing, so in hospital for Hearing. Mother informs Court reception on way to hospital. In absence, Claimant insists carry on and transfer case to Norwich 160km across County round trip. Case awarded to a Claimant who also demands a penal notice and injunction if walk on or put up owner’s fence again. Prison for 82yr old who has never touched the fence.

Case in joint names and jointly and severally liable. However, charge is in name of Herr Bernard Reemtsma, with a Hamburg Address. Must contact him for his permission, if want to raise any money from property – to fight, or pay off the alleged ‘debt’. Claim is for crop and for removal of fence. Approx £360 with a handful of sugar beet planted in rough soil in April 2009, which failed.

Cost of Injunction, Lawyer, Barristers is now £9,000. Case appealed to London but no oral hearing granted and Court delay provision of transcript to victims.

Path blocked to any higher appeal Court, with no oral hearing allowed to speak.

Charging order now put in sole name of Mother and Son refused entry into Court, despite being witness to fact, a party to debt and litigant friend. Court refuses any entry and as Mother unable to attend Court for Health reasons, she has GP and MP letters to support, they award Order of Sale on 30th July 2012.

Application for retrial and an Appeal is blocked, until Circuit Judge who made original decision rules no retrial and no Appeal, with sale to commence 23rd September 2012 for forced sale price around half its market value, by Valuer employed by Claimant, Seller of all surrounding land to Herr Reemtsma for six million pounds and Lawyers of Reemtsma and Velcourt, Shawcross of Herefordshire, whose Senior Partner is a founding Director of Velcourt and is a conflict of Interest lawyer of Reemtsma.

Submissions of Fact

1) B.Reemstma/ Eaubrink Farm GmbH was not the owner of the adjacent land in April 2009, when his agent removed the boundary fence. A boundary track was also removed, as aerial shot shows.

2) Claimant and Court relied on plans of General Boundaries not Root of Title Conveyancing maps, as per House of Lords case law (1999)and in precedent cases of Steward v Gallop & an (2010)

3) Claimant used a forged LR map with an exaggerated extension into field by hand drawn means, claiming to be of Land Registry.

4) Claimant withheld root of title deeds showing our ownership. A Court fraud.

5) No attendance, either by a medical absence, supported by medical report or GP letter, or barred from Court entry – Infringes rights to present a defence.

6) Initial request to transfer to a local Court and another jurisdiction ignored.

7) Claim form address is neither place of residence of place this business is in fact carried out. This makes claim void so an appeal challenge made to Order for Sale on Thursday 20th September to RCJ. A more local appeal to vary the order also made as second position to allow a means back into Court and for a challenge on valuation, timing and a means to raise funds, when Reemtsma is contactable, at a working address?

8) Crop damage claimed is for a weak crop planted into unused soil of 40yrs, in April 2009, when Claimant did not own the land. This is a fraudulent claim.

Bernard Reemtsma is claiming he works from Christian F Hansen Strasse with the Eaubrink Farm GmbH, but the telephone numbers given at Firm 25 and Unternehmensregister are those of World Imperial Tobacco and they say he has not worked there for 12 years. Bernhard has caused tremendous grief and stress to an 82 year old Lady with a history – Father took surrender of 1st World War German Fleet at Scapa Flow & personally saved drowning German Sailors – he used to say “they are all some Mother’s Sons”. Mother lost twin brothers in her sight during the Blitz.

We have German friends now and had met many extremely honourable and pleasant Germans, until this Bernhard Reemtsma, who is causing extremely draconian pressure and measures for a few metres of land that are on all old deeds & we had owned it for 12 years previous to his coming. The land is on deeds going back until 1970 for here, so this aggressive theft is horrendous. Throwing Barristers, Penal Notices and not once speaking, or writing first, was a very un-neighbourly act.

Reemtsma Family is trying to do some good, with their charity in Hamburg – elderly, sick and disabled catered for, then you see a very different side – elderly victim 82 and disabled Son, aggression and this Charity Address in Hamburg runs this International Company and a few more with Swiss foundation and telephones go through to a Tobacco Company that sell 90 billion cigarettes to Ukraine (so that is bad for the ‘youth’ of Ukraine), and apparently sell individual ciggies to African Children aged as young as 8 to get them all addicted young, when they cannot afford a packet. A duality of minds and profiteering that harks to a much darker time.

Does Reemtsma need 200sqm of our land when he has 1800 hectares? Does he need to sell our house, or buy it so cheap?

Since then, Herr Reemtsma found some nasty henchmen who were physically violent to the home owners. DISGUSTING when brute force rules and when ‘the law’ has become ‘the criminals’!…

    I notified Land Charges in March 2000 of a charge and details being sent to me for another person, l followed it up by returning the documents with a covering letter addressed to the person l had already spoken to. I also contacted the person the charge was for and was asked to keep a copy of the document for her.
    What l did not know was this other person and her ex husband had a caution on property / land (50 acres) l was recorded as the proprietary owner of.
    As with most “frauds” involving property / land , this was able to happen because of the “open register” at Land Registry that our Government opted for in 1990, allowing ANYONE to put a different address for service on property / land and it not be challenged by Land Registry. The fraud of the property / land
    was also tied into further land with my home . The common denominator was that both these plots of land had high values because they were ear-marked sites for large projects.
    As the owner of a Registered Title , any “error” in the caution register that affected me as the “proprietary owner” was grounds under the “indemnity” for
    immediate “Rectification of the Register”.
    Instead of this “Rectification of the Register” in March 2000 with the “error” of a charge for someone else against my Registered Title and stored in the “caution register, and this caution only being put against my title months before in 1999, was allowed to stay against my title until February 2007.
    Between March 2000 and February 2007 it caused me all manner of problems.
    Money paid for my divorce ( £6,900.00) was credited for the years 2002-2003 to this other persons account for a bill of £103.50p, and no correction.
    Errors in my postal address and reference number for my legal aid were told to Land Registry on 29 th October 2002 . Copy l have obtained of a letter from my Land Registry Office on 22 nd October 2002 , to the Deeds Department of my mortgage provider says there is a charge , when the charge had been dealt with at a court hearing in June 2002 that l was not provided with the details of until January 2004.
    This charge could only have been the charge for this other person / cautioner and yet a charge was also raised against myself , and still with no correction for the unlawful and known about charge of this other person.
    Audits were being done against my Registered Title , while there was two incorrect plans lodged for that title that were actually two identical plans to represent 3.42 acres and 50 acres . The postcode error that had been allowed to be lodged at Land Registry in 1994 to further this fraud was also known on record by Land Registry in October 2002 and again not corrected.
    In April 2010 l was written to by the then Chief Executive of Land Registry ( Marco Pierieoni) stating that l was the owner of a Registered Title and assuring me that l could not be deprived of land by a wrongly recorded postcode lodged at Land Registry.
    However this wrong postcode and the failure once it was on record as known about , combined with the unlawful and uncorrected charge for someone else who was a cautioner , enabled the theft of property / land (50 acres) and further land at my home that is my access and orchard.
    Involved in this fraud are Land Registry, Legal Services Commission, The Adjudicator to HM Land Registry , Law Society ,East Lindsey District Council,Lincolnshire Police , Seven Firms of Solicitors, Three Barristers and several Judges.
    The orcastration to enable these thefts has a trail of lies ( on oath), lisening in on my phone line ( device found by BT in 2003), fraud ,forgery, defamation of my character, court entered altered documents, lies on court forms, and misleading the courts in June 2002 when there was written promises on the court paperwork.
    I have records of all this and the involvement of TWENTY – NINE PEOPLE at Legal Services Commission who were meant to have sorted matters of the problems with my divoirce solicitors and a charge that was never for me.
    Two Investigating Officers at the OSS , the involvement of the CAB all to no avail.
    The second round of this was Land Registry confirming the access and orchard as included into my registered land ( l have original , certified documents to show this), to then some months later , survey the land for a neighbour who worked for the local council in planning.
    This neighbour admitted to a police officer in front of me and my helper on 30 th March 2008 that he knew the “land” (access and orchard) was my registered land , and false information was entered into court for this incident by this neighbour and their solicitors to mislead the court.
    An unprobated will was allowed into evidence ( not part of the remit of the Adjudicator to HM Land Registry to involve themselves in “wills” or “probate”).
    The Adjudicator for this constructed hearing was himself a commissioner for Legal Services Commission and should have declared his interest in the case and he did not do this.
    As he was also a barrister and had taken the oath to do with “conflict of interest ” and was aware of the previous history of the case involving Land Registry and LSC and it being related to the case he was to sit on, this amounts to gross mis-conduct, a fact he has always denied.
    I was prevented by this same Adjudicator from appealing as he instructed Land Registry to impliment his decision , while overlooking my appeal that was acknowledged as received by his office.
    I even had the indignation of a letter from the Chief Adjudicator ( Edward Cousins) , saying l had been allowed a further month , asked for by my acting solicitor ( as another owner of a bit of the land, had not died as had been thought, and he had come forward), and l had not “bothered” to appeal.
    Since then l have been to the High Courts in London and been refused my appeal out of time, and taken it back to the Rolls Building in February this year to be told that l am “very stupid” and that “you deserve to loose your home”.
    Throughout Land Registry have hidden my own transfer /conveyance document and refused a DPA request that would have provided office copy of it. This one document would have negated any litigation and would have protected the two plots of land /property l have been deprived of.
    Hull Land Registry have written offering me £300.00 for the inconvenience of my not being provided with this document that the Head of the Economic Crime Unit says is my property and no one else should have had it.
    My legal costs amount to over £135,000.00 and this has cost the ratepayer over the THIRTEEN YEARS of FOUR MILLION POUNDS.
    The two plots of land share one same interested party , involved in both thefts , this person is the brother of the District Councillor here . She sat on the panel at the IPCC to elect Dame Anne Owers as chair to the IPCC .
    Lincolnshire Police have acted corruptly throughout and the IPCC give dispensation whenever l try to complain about Lincolnshire Police.

    Charlotte,
    I have had the same problems over the last ten years involving The Land Registry, Adjudicator To HM Land Registry, High Court Judge (out of time), forged documents allowed to register title on two properties, Lincolnshire Police do nothing as they state ‘historic’. It appears your story is a mirror image of mine. I would like to know more about your story and if it has been resolved. I would appreciate a reply. Many thanks.

      The matter is still ongoing with costs now at £22k, excessively added to after a ‘win’ in the High court upped the valuation, BUT no interest to pursue fraud or conflicts of interest

    I am in the same position,i am a victim of Land Registry fraud the assistant Adjudicator to the LR covered up for their mistake and I just can not get any justice this as cost me thousands of pounds.I have all the Legal documents to the Land which is stamped by the High Court of Chancery Division

  6. J Barber says:

    My husband and I have had problems with the land registry giving our land that is within our title deeds to Babworth parish council even when they showed no standing which is the land registries policy and procedure to make an application. We have also shown evidence where Babworth parish council asked Notts County council to assist in making a link to another piece of land that is the Village green that has no connection to our land. This obviously shows that Babworth parish council knew the land was not connected to the village green.
    The problem that we have encounted is they all have links to the government or are under the judicial system and so they stick together and obviously will not accept errors in their camp.

  7. Debbie Edwards says:

    I am also a victim of land fraud by a man claiming to be an ex senior police officer because of the Land Registry who have told me that it does not matter that a neighbour has put a caution on my registered land after telling the land registry that it is unregistered and then building a fence on top of my sewer to claim the hedge which has been the boundary, according to our deeds since 1928 and which belongs to us. So far it has cost me over £10,000 to fight my case and the death of my husband and my93 year old mother literally giving up the will to live. We can prove that a builder in1928 purchased a piece of land 80 feet in width and sold off 40 feet of the land to the original owner and the remaining 40 feet to the next door owner. They seem unable to add 40+40 to equal 80 and say that there is unregistered land owned by a third party which has allowed the neighbour to claim 1 metre of my driveway. Is the land registry fit for purpose?
    As above the land registry will not accept a junior clerk was bamboozled by an obnoxious tyrant and gave out a caution which has allowed land fraud to take place. Perhaps we must unite to prevent land fraud

  8. You will find that it is the lawyers within the Land Registry who are making the decisions. Unfortunately I know from my own experiences that there is widespread corruption and it is often the small person or the person who cannot defend themselves who get picked on.I have decided to set myself up as a Mackenzie friend due to my own experiences.You will find that the legal profession is well short of where it should be. I would like to hear from anyone who has had bad experiences of the Land Registry and lawyers in general.

    I undertook a ten year lease on some commercial premises in January 2011. I did not find out until July 2011 that my commercial conveyancer had failed to register my lease. When challenged to make sure this was done, he told me we could not alert the landlords. As a consequence, the building I had paid to be fitted out, was in breach of planning, the RICS have investigated the Building Inspector for professional misconduct for issuing a Building regs certificate on a development that bore no relation to what had been built unlawfully and I had no legal rights to the £40, 000 I had invested on a ten year lease.
    I later found out that the building was repossessed, with the landlord receiving the full sale monies from the development I had invested my lease into as he had failed to register my legal interest.

    Hi,
    I owned a joint property with my ex partner for many years, on splitting up he refused to sell the house, refused to move out of the property and let me stay there and pay the mortgage etc with my daughter, and as a single working mother at the time couldn’t afford the costly court costs to pursue the house matter through the legal system.

    I was offered a job abroad for a couple of years and went abroad not thinking anything about the house as far as I was concerned he couldn’t sell it without my signature etc and it would just be money in the bank sort of speak for a later date if he did decide to play ball and sell it and split the profits.

    Anyhow after one year of being abroad and obviously not having no correspondnece with my ex partner at all since we had split 3 years previously, I was notified by one of my old neighbours that my house was up for sale. As soon as I was made aware I did some checks on rightmove to see the house up for sale. I therefore contacted a solicitor in the UK who sent several letters to my ex partner informing him that he could not sell the house without my knowledge or consent and if he tried or did sell it then he would be commiting fraud. I also contacted the estate agents who were selling the property on his behalf and they took the house off of there books. I was also told to inform the land registry to register a charge against the house.

    On calling and speaking to a guy from the land registry and explaining my situation I was told to register an alert online which would supposedly inform me by email if any searches or anything were to take place on the house which would also inform me that the ex partner was still trying to sell the house from under my feet. I set up this property alert and thought nothing of it. I still have the email recieved from land registry that this had been set up.

    10 months passed and I returned back to the UK after my employment abroad ended and I had saved up some money to actually take my ex partner to court to force him to sell the house and as I had heard nothing from the email I had presumed he was still living in the house and that I was still registered on the title deeds as the proprietor, however after doing a little research on Zoopla to look at estimated house price sales I came across my property and found that it had indeed been sold some previous 6 months ago.

    I telephoned the land registry straight away to find out what was going on after downloading a copy of the title register to see the new proprietors details. I was in total shock as I had received no emails or any alerts regarding any thing to do with searches on the property or anything. I was told that I would need to seek legal advise and contact the police, they also opened an investigation and told me their own lawyers would be dealing with it too. They also informed me of the lawyers details who dealt with the procedure of the sale.

    I contacted the lawyers and was told by him that I had myself went to his office on my own with a passport and some document drafted up to say that i had received my share of the profits already and I then supposedly signed the transfer deeds stating the dates I was meant to do it. I was absolutely gobsmacked at this time, as soon as I ended the call I phone the police who came out and took a statement this was some 4 months ago still nothing has been done. I undertook legal advice which has cost me substantial amounts of money to date they even have a copy of this passport which is clearly not me on the picture and has indeed been checked and came back as invalid ie fraudulent. The signatures on the transfer were clearly not my signatures either. I was told I could not change the register until there was proof that the current proprietors were involved in the fraud which there is no proof to say that they were so was advised to leave the register as it is. I just feel it is an absolute disgrace our legal system I have had to now pay £2,000.00 and have been told there is no guarantee I will receive it back and to take the claim into further civil litigation it would cost me a further £30,000 with a 50/50 chance of a good outcome. I am the victim in all of this it is clear he has commited the fraud as he was the only one to gain from this, and statement of account shows he recieved the full profit into his bank and I can prove I wasn’t even in the country at any time these events were taking place and have certainly never received any money at all in regards to my share.

    My solicitor wants a further £800.00 plus VAT to send a letter of indemnity to the land registry but due to ill health through all the stress I am no longer working and simply cant afford to take this any further so it looks like he has got away with it even though I have emails stating that I had set up this property alert and was never informed .

  11. The transfer document I believe you are referring to is a TR1. This document should contain the signatures of the transferor and the transferee. Each signature should be witnessed. In order to sell your property, your ex partner would need your consent. You are clearly saying this consent wasn’t given. This being the fact, your ex partner cannot sell your property. It appears to me that this is the theft of your home and the beneficial interest in your home. The theft alone is grounds for you to demand that the Land registry declare the sale of your property as null and void.. The consequences of this would be to revert the property back to the original owners- yourself and your ex partner. You say that someone impersonated you with a fake passport ( a serious criminal offence in its’ own right ).. The purpose of this impersonation was to sign a document in order to facilitate the sale of your property. If true, the signing of the document was an act of fraud and I believe carries a potential sentence of 10 years imprisonment. In other words these are not small beer matters. One has to ask what the lawyer, who represented the sale of the property, is doing. Presumably he/she is aware the passport is fake , equally he/she is aware you were not in the country when the TR1 was signed and equally aware that you have not received a penny of the proceeds. The lawyer has a duty of care to inform the Police and the Land registry of these matters. Equally your present lawyer has the same duty of care. I would pursue the matter with the Police and the Land Registry – this will not cost you a penny. If you need any help then contact me via my website http://www.thepeterboroughfriend.co.uk

    Public should not have any confidence in Land Registry to protect property.
    You can enter several addresses for notification with land registry to protect your property.
    Since 1990, it has become a blatant abuse, anyone can enter any notice, without providing any evidence to land registry. I have personally removed several such Unilateral Notices from Probate property, where the same solicitor from Julian Philip & Co, Paul Prentice, mislead Land Registry.
    Anyone can issue proceedings against estate agents, private persons and organisations with simple application and a nominal fee. All of the information is in public domain. Do not be scared of courts and judges. If you have evidence and are prepared to put time in, you can win. You see a solicitor works for his hourly rate but you would be able to work much more diligently.
