IRWIN MITCHELL PRIVATE CLIENT TEAM SOLICITOR IN THE FRAME AGAIN.
You have got to the love the probate scams that took place for the estate of the late Mavis Banks in 2015, in which the corners office is now refusing to hand over public tapes of the inquest.
Then we find out that when Charlotte Pritchard was the lead selling solicitor for Clyde and company on the 7th of July 2022 where she was employed up to this year before joining the private client team at Irwin Mitchell, Manchester.
Did she disclose to her new employer that she along with others broke a Tomlin order on not one but three different times not only that could not even complete a TR1 correctly!
She was ordered by a court only 8 weeks previously by an undertaking to not sell the property at 32 Hoole Road, Chester for less than £750,000 but sold it to her solicitor friends for just £490,000.
According to the land registry the TR1 shows she was present when the title deeds were signed and James Beresford had digitally signed this document in her presence yet that is not what the said building contractor witness has told probate scam editorial team in the past.
There was very strict legal constraints on solicitors at the time regarding the use of such signatures but it seems our Ms. Pritchard knows where all the North West probate scam bodies are buried and seems the perfect choice to carry on her work.
Seventeen months on while she was the lead solicitor she did not pay out a single penny in any of those proceeds from the sale to the beneficiaries which is basically legal theft.
What is even worse she has not even published the estates statement of accounts so what is she hiding are I.M aware of this before hiring her or they just as bad, it is fair question any private clients going forward might want to ask, are they the next victims?
If you think it cant get any worse, would anyone reading this believed that not only her but Clyde and Co has not even sent one letter or email confirming the property was sold 19 months ago and the SRA thinks this is fine and dandy just shows they have had there day and time time to get rid for good all they are doing is covering up trillions of pounds in lost HMRC revenues.
Are these the actions of professional solicitor or the actions of a yet to be caught fraudulent probate scammer, we let our loyal readers to decide.
She never even sold the property as the 12 bedroom HMO it was before and was still registered as such before she sold it dirt cheap to the solicitor/surveyors that had the 1.2m pounds in their business bank account.
That for them must have been like winning the lottery getting the property at below half price but then again we will be watching what happens to all her new clients going forward, as someone else has to protect their estates interests.
If a lawyer or estate agent knowingly sells a property that is classified as a multiple occupancy house or guest house as a normal home without disclosing its current classification, this could potentially be considered misleading or misrepresentation.
