How To Spot A Probate Scam. Probate Scam



It’s not the case for Chester perhaps being the center of the probate scams it most deafeningly is the most prolific probate theft area in the UK.

Not only have recent reports shown countless mysterious deaths in the area but Hoole Road seems the most likely place in Chester to have the estate’s wealth being most likely subject to probate scams.

Take the area around 32 Hoole Road for example a property first controlled by one of Chester’s many probate law firms Bartletts (Liverpool) where P. Bartlett ran up a 100k care bill just in order to control the will’s.

He did this for 4 years before being forced to remove himself from the case but still managed to run up an 80k legal bill when the actual care bill was less than 10k beggars belief!

This is the same group of law firms that was finned several years earlier by the law regulators for scamming their clients and was fined 300k.

Why are law firms allowed to carry out probate work and why the SRA protects and utterly fail to regulate law firms that rack up huge legal work bills when in reality do no real legal work at all?

Then we come to the scarlet pimpernel and now missing in action the best so-called probate expert in the land Mr. James Beresford who replaced P. Bartlett by the North West of England head of the law society using a Hotmail account we kid you not.

Now that very same office claims it’s not our fault gov things have gone very wrong!

These people have no shame and probate scams that are on the rise and the people that can help families are the very ones making sure the scammers are allowed to practice so are they part of the problem are they on the same gravy train of acts of fraud?

We can only report what we find it’s up to the police and others to stop these actions but it looks like those that do these terrible acts are so well embedded into the system is difficult to get anyone to listen.

But that perception among the probate scammed community is changing fast and all the main probate actor’s jail terms are becoming a real prospect in the near future.

Let’s get back to 32 Hoole Road Chester 2 offers of £1m were rejected by the top probate lawyer in the UK.

Not only that he got a no-one Preston-based Surveyor to value a £1.2m at only 345k submitted that to a judge in Liverpool git caught red-handed admitted it was wrong and never ordered a local report and has now broken a Tomblin order od Dec 2019 for a minimum selling price of not less than 750K for wait for it, 490k on the 7th July 2022.

So the top legal 500 probate expert refuses 2 written offers of £1m and ends up selling it in a private (price fixing deal) for less than half that price, a great deal for friends of friends if your part of the gang turns out its the same buyer who has been trying to get this property from day one. YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS SCAM UP!

SDL Auctions claims legal fraud by stating they sold the property and now blaming Cavendish Residential in Chester where they stated they also sold the same property at the same time.

One thing is for sure if Bartlett or Beresford ever gets to be the executor of your family’s estates would your family trust them as it turns out their regulators are in the process of doing the right things now but too little too late?

But if we did give James any benefit of the doubt he did want out of the case 4 months after taking it on and since then no one knows where he is and he’s never turned up in any court he could be in cement for all we know but he did become a client of his own firm at BLM Law and now the merger law firm CLYDE and Co is representing this clown now.

So who really knows what they have on him at this point or the other way around, strange or what?

What is even stranger is the fact the courts and lawyers won’t release the statement of the estate’s accounts which by the way is meant to be a legal requirement!

It’s absolutely crazy how many probate actors are in the field to stop any actions legal or otherwise to commit probate and estate thefts from happening and this now requires an independent judicial review and not by any judge from a probate law background. 

Our investigation of Chester will continue till the whole truth and nothing but is laid to rest the probate fight carries on.




Probate Scam



Cavendish residential Chester refuses access subject access request even though we have proofed the very same cavendish director claimed in various emails directly to the main beneficiary claiming they were indeed going to market the property for £800,000.


To further prove how stupid Cavendish has come they then market the very same 32 Hoole Road for an asking price of 750k then three weeks later drop it by £250,000 to an asking price of £500,000 without explanation.

At this point any reader would be forgiven into thinking this was a clear case of PRICE FIXING which as probate scam staff are concerned clearly is!

How on earth can any estate agent claim they have no information when clearly, they have instructions implied or otherwise that the main beneficiary of the probate has been hoodwinked into Cavendish marketing the property irrespective of who the executer is and, in this regards, Mr. James Beresford BLM/CLYDE and Co.

Obviously, communications between these parties were exchanged and obviously the main beneficiary would have been mentioned in the correspondence, so it follows the only way cavendish residential is refusing to provide a SAR is to help coverup a crime?

An even bigger question would then arise for any prospective future Cavendish clients, can Cavendish be trusted if they promise from the outset one thing then allow the executer to drop the agreed selling price by 300k in just under 3 weeks what that says about their professionalism and care of duty to protect the estates maximum value?

How To Spot A Probate Scam. Probate Scam



We at has formally asked the SDL Auctions marketing manageress for information after they released damming information from a FOI regarding 32 Hoole Road, Chester.

Dear E. it appears your giving your colleagues at SDL wrong and misleading information regarding Dr. Jones and it seems your all unaware this property had a Tomlin Order attached from Liverpool Dec 2019 that stated the property at 32 Hoole Road,  Chester CAN NOT BE SOLD FOR LESS THAN £750,000!

SDL one way or another failed to market the property for the correct price therefore rightly or wrongly they yet again damaged its footprint by marketing it for circa 500k, was you aware that this constitutes legal fraud E—-?

Are you further aware only one person that was legally authorised to sell this property and can you please confirm to Probate Scam who you or SDL thinks this is?

Are you also aware they are now posted as missing in action.

What SDL failed to inform you that the injunction against SDL the first time was not as clear cut as was told to you as the judge at the hearing stated clearly that if the property was sold by SDL at the time for less than the Tomlin order (which is a binding legal contract) SDL can be sued for the difference and given the seller refused 2 written offers of over £1m.

This was the main reason they pulled the plug on the deal at the time because the SDL marketing team never knew the wool was being pulled over their eyes by the selling agent and yet again its happened, it seems price fixing is still alive and well at SDL?

At least one of the smarter SDL managers noticed there was we quote something afoot here!

There is of course yet another problem for your client SDL was you further aware only Cavendish were allowed to sell it but they like SDL stated the property was sold before it actually was and by private sale which means to the casual looker, the entire thing stinks of PRICE FIXING and you have the cheek to worry about Dr Jones saying the truth about SDL.

At best you have all been hoodwinked by the selling agent, at worst there’s a better than good chance your all going to prison for legal fraud!

SDL has or should have this on file so we ask for an official press statement before we publish this open letter we request the following.

1/ Why did SDL NOT follow the Tomlin Order or was they not informed yet again that there was one in place?

2/ Who or what person in particular told you it was sold privately and at what price? Cavendish stated on their website 7 weeks ago that they sold it!

3/ Was you aware the selling agent is NOT currently insured to carry out this work when they instructed SDL the second time?

4/ Were you aware you had no legal right to market this property other than cavendish by order of Judge Hodge LIVERPOOL court?

You wrote this question to L–y. Wanted to flag to you from a compliance/legal point of
view – at what point does this become defamatory/libelous?

Your answer is NEVER  when the truth is told why do you think the selling agent has disappeared?

This letter will also be sent to all search engines and twitter compliance departments as Dr. Jones rights of reply.

PLEASE SEE THE SCREEN grab where SDL seems to be claiming legal fraud by means of getting a fee from the estate whether any work is actually carried out or not was you aware of this Ellie Claiming auction fees for no-work carried out?

Screen grab will be published if no reply from SDL is forthcoming in a timely manner (5 working days).

UPDATE – SDL read it passed to the directors of this discredited auction house and so-far refused to comment to probate Scam news desk.

If you have had any dealings good or bad on the above, we would love too here from you, please comment below?
