How To Spot A Probate Scam. Probate Scam



RICS complaint handling or investigations into undervaluing estates are as corrupt as hell if the RICS official investigation is anything to go by with the 32 Hoole Road RICS Complaint.

Over 1 year of the investigation where the now second executer and vanished of the planet James Beresford instructed a little known chartered surveyor Mr A.L of Charles Parker Bennet in Preston.

That’s correct one of the countries largest probate law firms in the land based in Manchester hired a no-one surveyor in Preston to travel 63 miles from his firms base when the firm had no idea he was even there, in fact when we talked to them directly they point blank said its not possible we don’t do work in Chester!

Surprise, surprise time again oh yes he did but it gets stranger when we asked to speak to the sole director Susan Bennett no one at the firm knew who she was???

Anyway this story is about RICS and their so called investigations AL decided this once Zoopla valued £1.2m property in 2019 was only worth wait for it, yes £345,000.

Undervalued by at least a factor of 3 times. Great investment opportunity if Beresford and his mates to profit from?

Of course we here you all say including the brand reputation managers that jump up and down getting bad press removed by the search engines, well we have it all in writing.

Why would AL do it, well three days after he gave Beresford and Pritchard (BLM LAW) this manipulated undervalued report he jacked in his job and went to work for the police in the same office as M.A a senior elderly crime detective inspector and now the breaker of a Tomlin order not to mention a deceased family member that gains from the probate, you really cant make this stuff up.

RICS claims to start with no-problem here gov, then when they knew we knew how to join the dots they panicked and they have now had their TOP team on the case yet last month we only just found out that a few days earlier they made their first approach to AL are they kidding.

All legitimate surveyors in the Chester are is saying this valuation given is frankly legal fraud all estate agents in Chester says this is fraud THE only job-worth’s yes the professional body that’s supposed to be looking after jo-publics wealth says no probs here GOV!

Last year there was purge at RICS most top directors were forced out of office due to claims of internal corruption and theres reports of over 14000 complaints each year of wrongful valuations that’s around £5-10b worth of crime or profits for probate scammers.

If probate Scammers can control the value of probate and estates the more they can rip off the estates and keep the profits when their partners in crime buy it cheap sell it high and split the proceeds.

How would anyone know, they make the TV program UNDER THE HAMMER look like BARGAIN OF THE CENTURY!!!

This is one of the ways that probate scams start if you think the value of your parents home is to cheap then your right insist on a second opinion by a national estate company like Savills for example.

National Banks Probate Scams are just as bad as official lawyers at making sure the probate gravy train continues and anything they can do to block access to courts through cutting out access to monies will be carried out.

32 Hoole Road example was exactly that this time it was the NATWEST BANK PLC doing all they can to help the disgraced STEP big hitter James Beresford, now it goes without saying and a tip if you think your lawyer is at it they all require to get a court order to access your deceased bank accounts.

Not with Beresford all he did was contact the bank told them he wanted the £48,500 that the NATWEST rightly gave Dr Jones 9 months earlier into a wholly seperate and private NATWEST account.

Removed it without permission or notice and just sent it to BLM without a court order and till this day has not returned it to its rightful owner Dr Jones as it was a business guest house account still being used as such.

Even after the bank regulator told the bank to give it back THEY HAVE NOT!

Of course like everything on the web how does this probate scam website prove the above is in fact true, easy NATWEST PAID COMPONSATION OF £250 to Dr Jones for doing it, you can’t make this stuff up!

More evidence of price fixing in Hoole, Chester by the countries top probate lawyer has come to light today as can be seen in this graphic below.

Price Fixing in Hoole Chester image.

More evidence of price fixing in Hoole Chester, so here we have proof that Bartlett’s of Chester/Liverpool and the super dooper BLM Law duo of James Beresford and Charlotte Pritchard who broke a December 2019 Liverpool high court ruling by judge Hodge not once not twice but 3 times so far for 32 Hoole Road.

Cavendish Residential in Chester wanted to sell it for offers over £800,000 but 2 weeks on the market reduced it to £500,000 if your local just ask them why before you become another victim?

Probate Scam is not in anyway saying all these properties other than 32 Hoole Road is not worth it but come on how is it possible that 32 can be almost half its price is not at all possible.

Of course would anyone give Prichard and Beresford any credit for first using a fraudulent RICS valuation they both stated in court documents they were NOT using that report but failed totally to get another one done before placing it on the open market shows clear price fixing in order to help their friends not to say anything about destroying neighbouring properties future values.

This is not a victimless crime, they need lots of so-called fellow professionals to hoodwink the public into thinking at worst its just an one off when its in reality widespread legal fraud.

When we first broke this story on Charlotte Pritchard deleted all her social media linking her and James but we took screen captures before publishing, unlucky!

James Beresford then became a client of his own firm boy they had this boy good and he was a partner at the time so either he knew it was wrong or he was deliberately parachuted in to do the dirty on this property.

We heard today MA the police detective (that looks after local crimes against the elderly) that gains in this probate where Cheshire police fails to investigate him, had possible links to this guest house before Mrs Banks fell ill, yes we find out everything Michael.

Why would he use Bartlett’s when everyone locally complains of him and when he knows he was fined by his regulator for £300,000 in the past makes no professional sense.

Anyone reading this will suddenly know wow so many parts needs to be linked for this to work, well we are only scratching the surface much more to come let us assure you all.

P Bartlett & Co. now trying same trick at 30 Hoole Road (yes we have proof in his hand writing already in court documents) claims its only worth 400k, really he should be the next presenter on Come on Down show Bargains of the Century?

James Beresford the star of the legal 500 and STEP Northwest probate and estates pinup boy fails to appear for a court date in London today.

In fact the BLM compliance team also failed to even step in for the golden boy of English probate, so it must be true BLM got rid before the CLYDE & Co merger with BLM.

Oh well nothing new here as poor James was on a hiding to nothing that even his so-called superior skills could not overcome it seems the writing is on the wall for the Amazon best seller telling the world about his virtues of the art in the deal of probate matters.

Where-ever he is lets hope for the sake of his new clients he’s not in probate or estate management anyone that breaks a court order not once but three times in the space of 2 years really can’t sleep a wink at nights, yes we know how does one proof that statement?

Easy his only job was to protect the first removed executor P. Bartlett of Chester who valued 32 Hoole Road,  Chester at £450,000 when it had a zoopla value at £1.3m.

Enter Beresford who was appointed by the Northwest Law Society 2020 who claimed it was only worth 500k and used a very dodgy surveyor from 63 miles away in Preston to give a valuation of only £345,000 for a 10 bedroom 8 bathroom property (probate scam).  Now RICS has taken over 1 year of investigations into this valuation scam.

First Beresford lists 32 Hoole Road for 450k the son of the property complained and SDL auctions got cold feet at changed it to 500K as shown below.


SDL got told by a master of the rolls building if they only sold it for less than the 7450k court order of Dec 19 they would be liable for the losses so they bailed out and dropped the sale even though they stated they had a bidder for nearly 6 months.

The next 6 months a property next door less than half the size sold for £750,000 on the open market would anyone want James Beresford as their executor???

Then James Beresford was forced to agree to an UNDERTAKING not to sell for less than 750k so he instructed Cavendish to market property at 750k as shown below.


2 weeks later and remember Cavendish Chester wanted £800,000 min he decided to drop the price again to 500K this guy is a living probate scammer nightmare this is why BLM had to get rid of him before this CLYDE & Co Merger.

Screen captures are a nightmare for CLYDE & Co, BLM Law, Cavendish Residential and James Beresford but these probate Scammers from hell are on borrowed time but there countless other up standing legal professionals abusing this massive money grab with little to no comeback for victims of Probate Scams such as these with Liverpool’s Lord Hodge deep in this mire.

Its the duty of every executor to maximise the estates value Beresford tries and does the exact opposite at every opportunity?  We ask again why did he do this, who was he protecting, why did BLM law and Charlotte Pritchard not Stop it happening?

The only conclusion is they are all part of the probate scamming playbook and simply can not be trusted!
