Oh What a Tangled Web we Weave,When First We Practice to Deceive!

Saturday 19th November 2011
I have Corrected a few Typographical errors in the interest of Clarity , the salient points are the same.
in this letter to Iain Wright , M.P.  Member of Parliament for Hartlepool

Dear Mr Iain Wright M.P.
I am Disappointed to note that you have failed to reply, to my last letter dated Tuesday 8th November 2011  after receiving an acknowledgement  when I wrote  to you, using the Internet Site, WriteToThem, Containing my answers to Malcolm Dawson's letter which is available on

I Did Think that You Would Question some of the Suspicious and Downright Misleading and Incorrect   answers and even offer your thoughts  on my Total Rejection of  Malcolm Dawson O.B.E  so called Investigation into my Allegations of  Criminal Wrongdoing by Officers of Land Registry, Durham. it is clearly a "Whitewash" a  "Cover-Up" of  Criminal Wrongdoing,
One Particular Statement below, which should cause every Property Owner who, Purchased ,a Council House
 from  Hartlepool  Borough Council some very Serious Concerns,  because it clearly  brings into Question  the
 Honesty ,  Professional Competence  and Legal Integrity of the "Sellers" Solicitor  J.Anthony Brown, the Chief Solicitor of Hartlepool Borough Council, who Checked and Validated and Legally Conveyed, Registered and  Recorded the Purchase on  Title Deeds CE 74844, “Absolute”  with Land Registry, Durham on 29th March 1984
In addition it also Questions the Honesty ,Professional Competence and the Legal Integrity of the "Buyers"
” Solicitors ,Levinson, Walker and Lister, of Church Street, Hartlepool.

Where all these Qualified Solicitors  “Criminally Incompetent” and Unfit for Office, I don’t think so.  

Malcolm Dawson further  states the following:-
“The 1972 transfer plan for numbers 46 &48 were endorsed to say that they had been prepared by the Local Authority’s Engineer and Surveyor ,( Unnamed) but  Land Registry had Retained copies of the Original Transfer Documents in Accordance with Standard Practice at the Time,
He goes on say,
The 1972 Transfer plan had Recently been Converted to a Digital Format as part of a National  programme
and the Original had been "Destroyed"  "HOWEVER" there is "NO" Reason to Doubt the "Authentic Copy"
This statement is Debatable, my Original Legal Documentary Evidence Contradicts this "Opinion"

  ? Is it not Strange to "Destroy" the "Original" Transfer Documents "BUT" to Retain the "Copies"
What was the name of the Local Authorities Engineer and Surveyor in 1972 ?

Please note,  Malcolm Dawson OBE,  Chief Land Registrar and Chief Executive of Land Registry is Very Careful “NOT”  to claim the “Authentic Copy” as an “Official Copy” of the Register of Title, “WHY”
And  I  ask once again “WHY” have I “Never”  Received such a “Copy”
but did receive, as previously stated , Two Coloured Photographs of an Outside Toilet  & Door "?

It must be Remembered that An  “Official Copy” ( which I received in October 2008  shows the Entries in the “Register” of Title CE 74844, on the 9th October 2008, timed at 10.55.27 ) and Issued on 10th October 2008, showing  and specifies the  Class of Title “Absolute” and Identifies the “Owner “ or Proprietor  on “Registration” on the 29th March 1984.
the “Official Copy”Is Admissible in “Evidence” of “Ownership”   to the same extent as the “Original”.  as  under s 67 of the Land Registration Act 2002,

I make “NO”  apologies for repeating that I personally very much DOUBT that the above Questionable Statement by  Malcolm Dawson’s OBE  that the “Original” Survey Documents had  been  “Destroyed”  but  there is “NO”  Reason to Doubt the “Authenticity” of the “Copy” Would be  Accepted as the  Definitive Truth  by a High Court Judge in a Court of Law, Without

(a) being made under oath and
(b) tested by Counter argument and Cross Examination by the Other Party,

It should also be noted that I personally with One  Independent  Witness Inspected and Validated all the Details ,in August 2008,   on the Original Land Title Deeds  DU 37533 “Registered” and Recorded in 1972
There was “NO”  Indication  or Evidence to Contradicted the Details Recorded at the time of Inspection.
As now claimed by Malcolm Dawson OBE . ?

In  addition it most Certainly questions  the Honesty, Integrity and Competence and can only Muddy the Professional Reputation  of the Senior Engineer and Chief Surveyor of Hartlepool Borough Council, B.R. Davies, B.S.c, who it "MUST" be Remembered was the "Senior Engineer and Chief Surveyor" and therefore
Responsible for “ALL” Surveys and  “Property Searches” regarding Council House Sales  in  1972. Including Title Deeds  DU 37533 .?

Are we to accept that he B.R. Davies, B.S.c.  was so  un- Professional  and  “Incompetent”  that he had failed to uncover his Own Property Survey Searches  which  he had Previously Prepared Prior to the Council House sale of  Land Title Deeds Du 37533, In 1972,  did he also " Completely Forget"  those  Property Survey  Details when “Searching”  and Surveying the following Council Property sales, in September 1983.?
Pre-Purchase Sale of Council House Property Search and Survey No.M44684  by B.R. Davies BS c Hartlepool Chief Engineer and Surveyor, dated September 1983.
(b )
Supported  by the “Hand Written Property  Survey Report”  for the attention of the “Buyers” Solicitors  “Levinson Walker & Lister “ of Hartlepool, Confirming that “ALL” the Land and Property Surveyed was “Recorded” and all “Details” on Land Title Deeds CE 74844 “Absolute” had been “Checked” and  were “Validated”  as “Correct” dated September 1983.

I Wish to make it quite Clear, this is not a Political Blog.  I have Never said or have Written  anything Detrimental about you as my Labour Member of Parliament for Hartlepool, but if you feel you are Unable for Whatever Reason, to Continue to  Support my Campaign for Justice any longer, Please be advised that With or Without your Commitment, ( and I would Rather Have you Inside My Tent than Outside, )
I fully intend to Continue my Peaceful Protest -------Corruption  Needs to be Challenged ,

I am the Innocent Victim of Fraud, with Sufficient Legal Documentation  to Substantiate  my Allegations,  against both  Land Registry and the named  Council Officers in the Planning and Legal Departments  of Hartlepool
Borough Council  who are  attempting to Sweep under the Carpet my legitimate Complaints of Fraud and Abuse of Public Office,

Consequently , because of the Legal Restriction place on me by the Parliamentary Ombudsman  ,that it may  affect the Parliamentary
Ombudsman’s Ability to Consider my  Complaint  if I was Planning to take Legal Action , (an option I wish to retain,)  I cannot,  therefore accept your Offer to Submit my Legitimate Claims of Property Fraud, to the Parliamentary Ombudsman,
In  view of the Very Serious Nature of my Allegations
I am left with No alterative but to Submit  a Formal Complaint to both the Chief Constables of Durham and Cleveland, to Request an Investigation into my Allegations of Land and Property Fraud,  as I believe Officers of  both Land Registry and Hartlepool Borough Council are Guilty of Conspiracy  in  Perverting  the Course of Justice.

How to Play a Get Out of Jail Free Card or am I really a Codhead ?

Letter of Reply and my Thanks  to Iain Wright, M.P. Member of Parliament for Hartlepool.
Tuesday 8th November 2011

Dear Iain Wright, M.P.
Thank you once again for your letter and the Attachments from Malcolm Dawson O.B.E. Chief Land Registrar and Chief Executive of Land Registry, containing some 12 pages of which some 51 individual paragraphs, unfortunately it is just a rehash of most of my points  previously raised with Elizabeth Derrington. Land Registry Complaints Reviewer,  containing,  at best ,  contradictory , confusing  and doubtful statements .in my opinion a Whitewash” with unexpected twists and turns, cleverly disguised  misinformation and hidden motives to totally avoid my Serious Allegations of Corruption and Criminality at Land Registry, Durham, and the  Fraudulent claims of  Property Ownership have been Totally Avoided, Ignored and " most certainly"  have "NOT"  been Investigated,  

Elizabeth Derrington. Land Registry Complaints Reviewer, you may recall, awarded me £300, and an
Apology,   for "Mistakes" made by Land Registry, Durham,.  "which I refused to accept" , and I Returned the £300,  to Land Registry, until such time when they addressed my Ownership Concerns. I am still waiting ? She did however admit that deciding Property  “Ownership” was “NOT” in her "Remit".

I once again  repeat that Alan H Smith, Assistant Land Registrar, Durham, acted “Unlawfully “ neither he nor any other employee of Land Registry have any legal authority  to
(a) Offer any Legal advice to a member of the Public.
(b) Can decide who is the Legal Owner of any “Registered”  Land and Property
                                That is I Believe  a matter for  the Law Courts.
Malcolm Dawson OBE in his letter does NOW  Confirm that "Julie Jenkins"  is the Head of Fraud at Land Registry, as she  stated  on the  B.B.C. News   Programme
                              "LAND REGISTRY TOO OPEN TO FRAUD"
When She made the following declaration, on Monday 30th March 2009
(This Broadcast was latter Confirmed to me after I submitted a F.O.I. request to the B.B.C.)
                                 See my F.O.I. Requests on WhatDoTheyKnow)
"We need to ensure there's a balance between Protecting the individual and Protecting the Property and that's what we're here to do,“ Protect People's Assets  "One of the Most Important Assets  they've  Got"

It was my understanding of that Broadcast that Land Registry also told the B.B.C.
That it had an Aggressive "Anti-Fraud"  Policy and Stated  that Land Registry has paid out  £36 Million
Pounds in Compensation for Mistakes and Fraud since 2005, and suggested that "ANY" Allegations
 of Land or Property Fraud should be Reported to "JULIE JENKINS" Head of Fraud at Land Registry
A Position as Head of Fraud )  Land Registry had previously “Denied “ even Existed , at least that is what I was led to believe when I attempted , on a number of Occasions in the Past to Report Property Fraud to
                    "Julie Jenkins" Head of Fraud,  which I find very difficult to understand, ?
                    ( See my  F.O.I. Requests on the WHATDOTHEYKNOW internet site.)
 I was also led to Believe that Land Registry had a Duty to Report or were Obliged to Report "ANY"Allegations of Property Fraud from the General Public ,  to the Police, it is Obvious in My Case that Land Registry have failed to  fulfill  their  Obligation and Duty, ? Strange, but  True ?

 It Cannot be Unreasonable to Enquire whether that has happened before and why was my allegations of Fraud ignored.? Was it because it involved Officers of Land Registry Durham,  themselves.? Should  it not now be reported. in a Formal Complaint to both the Chief Constables of Durham and  Cleveland,?
By me the innocent victim of this Criminal act. ? Or should I complete the Parliamentary and Health Service Complaint form  kindly sent to me by my Member of Parliament Iain Wright  M.P. which must be signed by a Member of Parliament to the Parliamentary Ombudsman.? I will  need time to decide, but I am determined to continue
Another very important  statement  in the letter of reply from Malcolm Dawson O.B.E. which should be Noted and Recorded which I personally find quite  Unbelievable and Highly Suspicious,  and some people might even find it a very Convenient answer and  explanation  in answer to my Serious Allegations of Criminality Negligence and Incompetence, by playing what could be called a

                                                      “Get out of Jail Free Card”

when he states that the 1972  transfer plan, (is this a Survey ? ) prepared  by the local Authorities Engineer and Surveyor (No name) but in my opinion can only be  B.R.Davies B.S.c. the Hartlepool Councils Senior Engineer and Chief Surveyor, who held that  position   in 1972,  had recently been “Converted  to a Digital Format” as part of the National Programme and the “Original” transfer plan had been “Destroyed” However Malcolm Dawson's OBE letter goes on to say, 
  there is  “NO”   reason to doubt the Authenticity of the “Copy”. ?   WHY, ? 
      It is in Direct Conflict with other Survey Documents by B.R. Davies B.S.c 

I very much DOUBT that the above Questionable Statement by  Malcolm Dawson’s OBE  that the “Original” Survey Documents had  been  “Destroyed” and there is “NO”  Reason to Doubt the “Authenticity” of the “Copy” Would be Accepted as the  Definitive Truth  by a High Court Judge in a Court of Law, without
(a) being made under oath and
(b) tested by counter argument and cross examination by the other party, 

One Might Reasonably also  ask “Why” if this  “Authentic Copy” was available, was it “NOT”  Produced  to me in the Original B141 application  in October 2008, instead of the Photo Stat 
" Copy"  of Part of an  Engineering Drawing from the office of B.R,Davies ,Stamped and Dated 1971, of the General Area  when "Both"  Properties where in the Ownership, of Hartlepool Borough Council. including other pieces of paper Claiming Ownership of Part of My Outbuildings which also included the Two (2) Coloured  Photographs of an Outside Toilet and Various other "Unofficial"
Photo-Sats of the General Area of West-View. Hartlepool.

All of the above I Rejected as "NONE" were "Official Copies" just pieces of  Paper, Unbeilable ?

Why was it "NOT" Recorded or Shown   on the "Official" Original Land Title Deeds DU 37533 "Registered" by Hartlepool  Borough Council in 1972. when "BOTH" Land Title Deeds ,Including 
Land Title Deeds CE 74844 "Absolute"  were  Independently Examined for Validity in August 2008. ( Some 36 years "AFTER" the "Registration of Title " in 1972.) very Strange ?
according to the Land Registration Act 2002 , Guidance Notes, you only have 30 Days to Officially "Register" your Title,   

Why was it "NOT" Included and  Shown or Recorded on the "Official Copy" of the "Register of Title which showed "ALL" Entries in the Register of Title on the 9th October 2008, timed at 
10.55.27. Issued by Land Registry on 10th October 2008. Which very Clearly States That :-

Under s. 67 Of the Land Registration Act 2002, This " Official Copy" is Admissible in 
Evidence to the Same Extent  as the "Original" Title number CE 74844 Title "Absolute"
Filed  29th March 1984.
Proprietorship Register :- This "Register" Specifies the Class of Title "Absolute" and Identifies 
the "OWNER" it Contains  "ANY" Entries that Effect the Right of Disposal

                     I wonder what they will do or say to get of the hook this time ?


I also find it very confusing and very difficult  to accept that after over Three (3) years  of protest at this Injustice to Land Registry, Durham,  and  following the recent intervention of Malcolm Dawson OBE,
Lo and Behold a  “Copy” of an “Original” Survey Plan which had been “Destroyed “ was suddenly Discovered,  would "NOT" a  Authentic Copy of an Original Survey Drawing  be a  Facsimile
of the "Original" , and will  it be produced in a Court of Law, ?
Might I ask where was it Found, behind a Radiator or in a Toilet  perhaps ?

Would it not Make "ANY"  Reasonable Sensible Person a little Suspicious,  after all I had Previously Receive paperwork from Land Registry of a highly  questionable nature, there is certainly a very fishy smell coming out of Land Registry ,Durham.

It is of Paramount Importance in the interest of Justice and Fair Play to Remember that if one was to accept  the claim of Malcolm Dawson’ OBE ,that there was no reason to doubt as Authentic and  Proof of “Ownership” the “Copy” of the 1972 transfer plan, ( with no name of the Surveyor and therefore questionable qualifications)  after the “Original” was  “Destroyed ( this it must be remembered  is only his presumption and opinion ) it casts Substantial doubts on  the Honesty and Integrity of “ALL” the Elected Hartlepool Councillors who signed the Pre-Purchase Council House Property Sale Documents
 including the Town Mayor  J Jones. Which I find totally "Disgraceful", "Unacceptable"  it 
                                             Will and Must  be Challenged.
This is one more Devious and  Suspicious Document issued by Land Registry, Durham , who don't report any potentially criminal fraudulent  acts  to the Police., if it involves any  allegations of wrongdoing by their own employees, I have had a number of previous documents that no-one in his right mind would consider as definitive proof of “Ownership” now we have this  ludicrous situation, is it  to save face, can Land Registry a Government Department be allowed to just say,  the Survey drawings were “Destroyed”  job done. This is arrogance , it says to me that Land Registry Durham,” We can walk on water, you have no voice “?
You have no right to appeal our decision, unless your try for a Judicial Review, which Andrew Schofield, Office Manager had told me,  could involve very, very  substantial costs ? That to a 79 year old pensioner, on a limited private pension. Who had the “Audacity” to Complain,  If that is not intimidation, I don’t know what is, ?

This is one more experience of injustice from a Government  and Public Authority which makes the” Laughable”  claim that if you “Register” your Property with us  you know it will be safe ? My Property  was “Registered” in 1984,  so much for Land Registry’s claim a
                                     “Registered” Land Title is “Guaranteed” ?
There are Millions of People who purchased Property by “Mortgage” as we did, who worked to pay off
  the “Mortgage”  in addition to all the legal fee’s  and costs, are under the impression that their Property legally purchased, “Conveyed” and “Registered”  is  safe,  they may even think their property was  “Sacrosanct” , they may well have Serious doubts now, particularly if you live in the North-East
 of England and do "NOT" have the Financial Clout of a Government Authority to protect your financial investment.?

What Really Disgusts me is the fact that such Unbelievable and I personally believe  Dishonest  Statements are  made to protect Dishonest Government Officers , who know that individual members of the General Public in Particular Pensioners, cannot afford Expensive Legal Teams ,they all loose out, "NOT"  
 because they were Wrong, but because there was enough Cash stacked against them to Ensure that the Reputations of those Guilty of Incompetence or Wrongdoing were saved.
Those questionable  statements also brings into question the Honesty, Competence and Legal Integrity of “ALL” involved in the Selling and Buying of Council House Property,
 The "BUYERS"     Solicitors,    LEVINSON WALKER and LISTER 
 The "SELLERS"   Solicitors, Hartlepool  Chief Solicitor , J Anthony Brown, 
who legally "Conveyed"   and   “Registered “ and Recorded the Purchase on   Title Deeds CE 74844, “Absolute”  with Land Registry, Durham  on 29th March 1984.
            Where they "all " Criminally Incompetent and Unfit for Office, I don’t think so.
It  casts Doubts on  the Honesty and Integrity of “ALL” the Elected Hartlepool Councillors who signed the Pre-Purchase Council House Property Sale Documents, including the Town Mayor  J Jones.
(c )
In  addition it "MUST"  question the Honesty, Integrity and Competence and can Only Muddy the Professional Reputation  of the Senior Engineer and Chief Surveyor of Hartlepool Borough Council, B.R. Davies, B.S.c, who was Responsible for"ALL" Surveys and "Property Searches Regarding Council House Sales "NO"  Council Hose Sales  including Property  Surveys could have been Conducted without "HIS" Knowledge and Authority, as Chief Engineer and Senior Surveyor for Hartlepool Borough Council, he would have been fully aware of all Land and Property details Record on Title Deeds DU 37533 prior to sale in 1972. 
Am I also to Accept that R.B. Davies B.S.c. Senior Engineer and Chief Surveyor of Hartlepool 
Borough Council, was so "Incompetent" that he would have "Forgotten" and Completely  failed to Re-Discover  in his Records , a Previous Search and  Survey Report he had Completed in Respect of the Pre-Purchase Council House Sale with Details, Recorded on Land Title Deeds DU 37533 in 1972.
While Conducting the Pre-Purchase Search and Survey Report No. M44684, in September 1983,  on behalf of the "SELLERS" Hartlepool  Borough Council,  prior to the  Sale of Council House Property  and "ALL" details Surveyed  Recorded on Land Title Deeds CE 74844 "Absolute" 
(c )
Supported  by the “Hand Written Property  Survey Report”  for the attention of the “Buyers” Solicitors  “Levinson Walker &  Lister “ of Hartlepool, Confirming that “ALL” the Land and Property Surveyed was “Recorded” and all “Details” on Land Title Deeds CE 74844 “Absolute” had been “Checked” and  were “Validated”  as “Correct” dated September 1983.
I wish to draw your attention to the following tribute to the Rt.Hon. Lord Denning. The Lord Chief Justice, His appeal Court Ruling, January 12,13,24, 1956 was,
“No Court in this land will allow a person to keep an advantage which he has obtained by Fraud. No judgment of a Court, No order of a Minister, can be allowed to stand if it has been Obtained by "Fraud" 
                                                           Fraud Unravels Everything

                                    In the words of another  Former Lord Chief Justice Gordon Hewart
“ It is of Fundamental Importance that "Justice Should Not Only be Done, but should Manifestly and                                                                                                      “Undoubtedly be Seen to be Done "

No Cover-Up for Wrongdoers

Letter to M.P. Iain Wright, Wednesday November “2nd.

Dear Iain Wright, M.P. Member of Parliament  for Hartlepool.

Thank you for  your latest Letter dated 19th October 2011,  I note your comments and appreciate  your obvious endeavours to resolve this prolonged Property Dispute, with Land Registry, in fairness to yourself, I send the following Information for your perusal  before publishing it on my Web Site, if you think that any reference to yourself  is in anyway detrimental ,then please let me know before I publish and I will be happy to remove it .but I have no intention of removing any of my Allegations of Criminal activities.
You very kindly informed me that you would  keep me informed of any developments, in addition you stated that in order to assist me as much as you  can you had written on my
behalf to Mr. Malcolm Dawson OBE, Chief Land Registrar and Chief Executive of the Land Registry, you  asked Mr Malcolm Dawson OBE, to ensure that my Complaints are thoroughly Investigated and my Serious Allegations are Reviewed,
Unfortunately there appears to have been very little if any investigation or indeed any Constructive Response to your request on my behalf to Mr Malcolm Dawson O.B.E. into my Allegations of what I firmly Believe to be” Criminal” activities when acting without “ANY”  legal authority in Public Office, by Officers of a Government Department, Land Registry, Durham
This is in no way a criticism of  you my Member of Parliament, but I  personally do find this Conduct  and the long  delay by Officials of Land Registry is  insulting , arrogant and disgraceful, it  Indicates  to me and others that you, as a  Democratically Elected  Member of the House of Commons, are not receiving  the respect your membership  of Parliament deserves, it may also highlight my own  difficulties  over the past 3 (years)
to receive any justice to my legitimate “whistle blowing “ of  criminal activities “When someone blows the whistle” they are raising a concern about dangers or illegality that effects other members of the public, People buying property by way of a “Mortgage”
Expect  to be protected from Incompetents employees of Land Registry.
I do “ not “ apologise in repeating for  the Record, my Allegations  that Officers employed by  Land Registry
Alan H Smith,           Assistant Land Registrar ,
Andrew Schofield,    Office Manager,
Anthony Lowes,
have “NO”  legal authority to give advice to the public nor are they legally authorised to decide who is the owner of any Land and Property, as they did in the B141 application.?
This is illegal , a member of the public should have confidence in the Integrity of Government employees in positions of trust to  carryout their duties  in accordance with the Law.
It is also important to appreciate that Land Registry simply supply information regarding the “Registered Title“. They have “NO”  authority to  enforce the information an d where
disputes arise then these must be resolved by either the parties involved or through legal representation and/or the “courts“ .
It is my Intention to publish all of my Documentary Evidence which will prove and add substance to my allegations,  a little later,  for the moment I will concentrate on the allegations concerning Officers employed by Land Registry, Durham.
These serious allegations  are “NOT”  Unrelated. to my other  Allegations directed at Officers of Hartlepool Council,
Alyson Carman, Solicitor and Complaints Reviewer
Hilary Martin, Solicitor and Freedom of Information Officer
Richard Trow, Case Planning Officer,
Mr Reece, Development Control Manager
I consider that all the Named  officers of both  Land Registry, Durham and
Hartlepool Borough Council were Complicit in a cover up of a wider CONSPIRACY to  pervert the course of justice and to cover up serious Criminal offences in Public Office. I have Documentary Evidence that Confirms and Validates all my allegations of Criminal Wrongdoing

Public authorities need to be held to account for their actions and at the very least be forced to explain them when they appear to be questionable.

To ensure that no suspicion of any wrongdoing  can be directed to yourself for your endeavours on my behalf,  I hereby state  that all allegations published here and on the  World Wide  Internet are mine and mine alone, If any of my  allegations statements published  here and on another Internet site, WhatDoTheyKnow.  relating to any of the named persons are “Untrue” or in any way “Incorrect” then they are fully entitled to pursue legal actions against me in a Court of Law, ?

it should be noted that I have been trying since August 2008, on various internet sites  by writing Letters of Complaint, E-mails and Freedom of Information requests to obtain a fair and just hearing from Both Land Registry and Hartlepool Council without success, everyone should take note that “NONE” of the  persons I have named have taken any legal action so far,  nor is it likely that anyone named  would do so, I doubt that any of the named would have the moral courage to stand up in a Court of Law and produce “any” Documentation to Challenge  my Incontrovertible  Documentary evidence of “Ownership” Perjury is a very serious matter ?
It also Confirms and Validates my past allegations that the above named Corrupt Fraudsters think they are above the law, they think they  are unaccountable for their Criminal actions, they have previously deliberately ignored documentary evidence
 “Proving”  the legal “Ownership”  of  Land and Property Title CE 74844, “Absolute“ , and knowingly Misrepresented facts to favour a B141 applicant, containing  two(2)  Coloured Photographs of an “Outside” toilet door , as better proof of Land and Property Ownership, (remember Alan H Smith, Assistant Land Register as “NO” legal authority to decide the ownership of “ANY” land and Property. ?

They have also Completely failed to uphold the “Law”  including the  Land Registration  Act 2002, and their own Published Guidance Notes 8, August 2009,
Section 2,which very  clearly states that a “Registered” Title is “Guaranteed” they  have also  ignored the “Fraud Act  2006,  Section 4,  Fraud by abuse of Position. (a) (b) (c )
They can and probably will continue to ignore me, a 79 years old pensioner with
impunity, but  it now appears they can ignore with Complete and  Utter contempt “ANY”  requests from my Democratically Elected Member of Parliament. Iain Wright  M.P.
I believe that all my Documentary Evidence Land Title Deeds CE74744,
“Absolute” proves without any reasonable doubt that we are the ” legal owners of “ALL” Land and property detailed , Legally Conveyed  and   “Registered “ and Recorded with Land Registry, Durham on 29th March 1984. By the Chief Solicitor, of Hartlepool Borough Council,  J Anthony Brown,
 In addition  the :-
Pre-Purchase Sale of Council House Property Survey No.M44684  by B.R. Davies BS c Hartlepool Chief Engineer and Surveyor, dated September 1983.
(c )
Supported  by the “Hand Written Property  Survey Report”  for the attention of the “Buyers” Solicitors  “Levinson Walker & Lister “ of Hartlepool, Confirming that “ALL” the Land and Property Surveyed was Recorded and all Details on Land Title Deeds CE 74844 “Absolute” had been “Checked” and  were “Validated”  as “Correct” dated September 1983.
In addition to our Redemption of  payment of “Mortgage”  acknowledged by
J.D. Walton I.P.F.A. Chief Financial Officer, when we purchased the
said property from Hartlepool Council in February 1984.

Four face jail over £100k council fraud

Four face jail over £100k council fraud:

A DISGRACED former council boss and three business pals have been told they will be jailed after pocketing more than £100,000 of taxpayers’ cash in an elaborate building scam.

Police have also vowed to claw back their ill-gotten gains after the quartet were found guilty of the con in which bogus invoices were put through council coffers.

Four face jail over £100k council fraud

Council manager Michael Skirving

Hartlepool man Michael Skirving, 50, who was head of Darlington Borough Council’s asbestos department, conspired with Martin Dougherty, 45, and James Burns 43, to create bogus invoices totalling £109,494.

A fourth man, Graeme Storey, 38, was convicted of attempting to pervert the course of justice after he lied to police that he had carried out work as part of the scam.

A jury took just hours to unanimously convict the shamed men.

The fraud saw Skirving put 15 invoices through the local authority for £75,754 which was paid to

Dougherty’s one-man firm MBN Roofing and Builders.

It was for labour said to have been done by the firm on jobs in Hartlepool, Billingham and Middlesbrough.

Burns, was paid £33,740 after submitting invoices for the hire of a cherry picker platform in connection with asbestos removal contracts in Owton Manor, Hartlepool, overseen by Skirving.

But the prosecution said the cherry picker was not necessary for asbestos removal and the platform and labour was not carried out to the extent the trio claimed.

Skirving, Dougherty and Burns were found guilty of conspiracy to defraud Darlington Borough Council between October 2007 and April 2009 after a five-week trial at Teesside Crown Court.

Judge Peter Armstrong said: “You have been convicted by the jury for fraud involving public money, as far as Darlington Borough Council is concerned, and you Storey of telling lies to the police to bolster that fraud.

“The amounts involved are serious and you can expect, I’m afraid, custodial sentences.”

The jury of eight women and four men returned unanimous guilty verdicts on all charges after around five hours of deliberation.

Skirving’s department had been awarded numerous contracts to remove asbestos as part of wider housing regeneration schemes across Teesside.

The trial heard how he told Burns and Dougherty what to invoice the council for in connection with lucrative contracts.

The prosecution said the fraud was conceived between the friends in the pub and on the golf course.

Prosecutor, Rosalind Scott Bell, said the money will attempt to be clawed back under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

Skirving, of Grange Road, Burns, of Wansbeck Gardens, Dougherty, Westbrooke Avenue and Storey, of Hart Lane, all Hartlepool, will be sentenced in around three weeks time.

All four men were released on bail.

A spokesman for Darlington Borough Council said: “I can confirm that Michael Skirving worked for us and that he left of his own accord in 2009. It would be inappropriate to comment further.”

Durham Constabulary, which investigated the fraud, said it would not comment on the outcome of the trial until after the men had been sentenced.
