Introduction

This section is a perfect example of how the offshore domicile of 'off-the-shelf', paper companies allow the owners to hide behind them (BVI # 2) – making a complete mockery of Landlord & Tenant legislation.

And, by facilitating their trading in a monopoly board game style, place leaseholders - deliberately (see my Comments under BVI # 2(4)) - in the situation of not knowing who controls their home at any one point in time.

This is certainly my - ongoing - situation: I do not know who controls my home i.e. my main asset,...

...- IN SPITE of the communication I received in Aug 13: 13.08.16 letter from Saul Gerrard MA FICBA MRICS, Martyn Gerrard, claiming that GREYCLYDE INVESTMENTS LTD was "the freeholder" and "my landlord" - as this announcement leaves many questions unanswered.

Hence, I do NOT know who has legal responsibility for performing the landlord's covenants in my Lease.

As I wrote under para.57 of my 03.06.08 Witness Statement:

"Under the L&T 1985 Act I have the right to know who controls my home. It is clear that, with no mechanism in place to control the residential leasehold sector, no matter how hard I try to get an answer to my question - at any one point in time - I will never know"

This is to be added to not knowing whether the individuals who control their home – including service charge monies, which can run into millions of £s - have a criminal record / major incapacity, as there is no vetting system whatsoever on the suitability of an individual to be a landlord.

In my case, I know that the common denominator across the majority of the offshore paper companies and sham directors associated with Jefferson House - is multi-criminal Rachman ANDREW DAVID LADSKY.

Further, in light of his "instructions" (Portner # 5.1) since 2002 (Extortion) - quite clearly, in "very serious need" of psychiatric treatment (My Diary 15 May 08).

In fact, his insanity is such that, like that of some of his supporters, he can only perceive sane people as "suffering from mental issues; from clinical paranoia; clinically unwell".

(1)- Emergence of 'STEEL SERVICES Limited' in November 1996...followed by a disappearance...then a reappearance... and now?

 

In its 21.11.96 communication, Laytons of Carmelite, solicitors, London EC4Y 0LS (Advisors # 3 ; Notices # 1 and # 2), informed leaseholders:

"...as solicitors to Steel Services Limited care of PO Box 258, Malzard House, 15 Union Street, St Helier, Jersey JE4 8TY, Channel Islands" [1]"HEREBY GIVE YOU NOTICE that:

(1) by a Transfer dated 18th November 1996 and made between Acrepost Limited" [2] "(1) and Steel Services Limited (2) the head leasehold interest in the property known as Jefferson House, Basil Street, London SW3 (particulars of which lease are set out in the Schedule hereto) were thereby assigned to the said Steel Services Limited"

(2) The said Steel Services Limited is and was at the 18th November 1996 an associated company (within the meaning of section 5 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987) of the said Acrepost Limited".

"THE SCHEDULE above referred to: A Lease dated 31st March 1980 and made between The British Petroleum Pension Trust Limited (1) and Banwick Investments Limited (2)"

(1) - A fake address

(2) - My Lease is from Acrepost. At the time that Langhaven Holdings was dissolved in 1994, Acrepost was reported in 30.06.94 accounts as a subsidiary of Langhaven Holdings (see Directorships # 2 for detail)

The Land Registry property register dates the above transaction at 22.11.96

The accounts for Langhaven Holdings at the time that it was dissolved identified the following individuals as current / past directors:

(see Directorships section for further detail).

It is abundantly clear that Andrew Ladsky and Steel Services are / were one and the same (Advisors to Jefferson House ; Directorships) but, arriving at this conclusion - with certainty - took several years.

While, in breach of my statutory rights, after 10 months of endless correspondence in 2002, I was left with not knowing the name of the directors who owned Jefferson House i.e. who controlled my home (Owners identity # 1 , # 2) - my search resulted in the identification of false claims:

Concurrently - and subsequently - Steel Services was described as the "freeholder" for Jefferson House (see Freehold # 1).

Some extensive shuffling of paper took place subsequently - as detailed below.

Something that does not make sense:

In its 23.10.01 letter to Nucleus CAB, the Land Registry stated that,

"in relation to the query about the ownership of the underlease for Jefferson House, Nucleus should get Land Registry title NGL577861" - which is the title for apartment # 11.

This does not make sense, as the leaseholder said to be targeted by Andrew David Ladsky e.g.

  • In her 24.02.03 email to me, she stated that one of her friends had come to her apartments and "found legal papers stating that her flats would be auctioned on March 11" - and that she had not received any communication in the United States. (Apartment # 10 was the second apartment.
  • She sent me a copy of this 17.10.02 email she said to have sent to the tribunal re. the July 02 "service charge" demand, stating that she had "paid [her] share as a result of feeling intimidated and threatened" (LVT # 1.4).

But...

(2)- LAVAGNA ENTERPRISES Limited became the 'superior headlessor' in December 2005 - in the process taking control of the last floor of Jefferson House - away from 'Steel Services' (for more detail, see Owners identity # 3).

 

On the Land Registry records at 22 Feb 06, title NGL 373 333 i.e. Steel Services had disappeared from all 3 titles for the freeholder, Jefferson House Limited.

Instead, each of the 3 titles, # 69437 (9 Basil St ), # 69051 (11 and 13 Basil St ), # 101949 ( 7 Basil St ) stated - at this date:

"Lessee's Title" BGL 56642 with "Date of lease and term" as "15 December 2005, from 29 September 1979 to 1 October 2202"

This title, BGL 56 642, is / was for Lavagna Enterprises Limited. It states/d that it is / was incorporated in the British Virgin Islands (like Jefferson House Ltd, Steel Services Ltd) (and 'Sloan(E) Development(S)' - point # 6, below).

As can be seen on the title, this deal took place between Jefferson House Ltd and Steel Services Ltd, and was registered on 31 Jan 06. The value of the transaction was recorded as £875,000 (US$1.5m).

The outcome of this transaction was that Steel Services (# 1, above), the title No NGL 373 333, became the "lessee" of Lavagna Enterprises and, consequently, Lavagna Enterprises became the superior headlessor.

(As can be seen on the graph I - developed in Feb 06, from Land Registry titles at the time - according to Land Registry records, Lavagna Enterprises also owns/ed other apartments. See Owners identity # 3, for detail)

(PDF of above diagram - at Feb 06)

(3)- On 24 May 2006, the title for Steel Services (# 1, above) was transferred "BY Steel Services" TO "ROOTSTOCK OVERSEAS Corp, Panama", for £120,000 (US$212,000)

This information was finally communicated to me by Ahmet Jaffer, Portner and Jaskel, in a letter dated 12.07.07.

(NB: Jaffer lied by claiming that it had been communicated to me previously (Portner # 15 ) when his equally corrupt colleague, Jeremy Hershkorn, sent me the 16.02.07 letter, in which he threatened me with "bankruptcy proceedings and forfeiture" (copy of definition) (Overview # 10 ; Portner # 3).

(Hershkorn's 'reply' to my saying that I had never heard of 'Rootstock' was to file a fraudulent claim against me on 27.02.07 (Overview # 11 ; WLCC # 1)).

The 24.05.06 Land Registry 'Transfer of whole of registered title(s)' states:

"2. Title number of the property: NGL 373333

3. Property: Jefferson House, 7 to 13 Basil Street, London SW3 1AX

4. Date: 24th May 2006

5. Transferor: Steel Services" (1)

6. Transferee: Rootstock Overseas Corp

7. Transferee's intended address(es) for service (including postcode) for entry on the registry. You may give up to three addresses for service one of which must be a postal address but does not have to be within the UK.

The other addresses can be any combination of a postal address, a box number at a UK document exchange or an electronic address: (2)

Edificio PH Plaza 2000, Calle 50, Apartado 6307" [3]" , Panama 5, Republic of Panama"

9. The Transferor has received from the Transferee for the property the sum of £120,000.

13. Signed as a deed on behalf of Steel Services Ltd, a company incorporated in the British Virgin Islands by Enrique Sibauste, being a person who, in accordance with the law of that territory, is acting under the authority of the company." (4)

(1) - As Steel Services was a "LESSEE" of Lavagna Enterprises at the beginning of 2006 (# 2, above)...

...- how to explain that, in May 2006, Steel Services is the "TRANSFEROR" of the title to Rootstock? Surely, the "transferor" should be Lavagna Enterprises?

I repeat my above explanation (# 1) that these offshore paper companies have the same multi-criminal Rachman individual attempting to hide behind them: Andrew David Ladsky.

(See also, below: # 5 and # 7)

(2)- The right - stated on this Land Registry document i.e. under UK legislation - to give "up to 3 address, that do not have to be in the UK " - combined with the use of "sham directors" (BVI # 2)...

...- make a complete, and very clearly - deliberate - mockery of legislation claiming to 'give' leaseholders 'the right' to know who controls their home.

The same thing is repeated by the UK company laws that allow the owners to hide their identity (BVI # 4) .

(3) (4) = A private address = "a sham director". I wonder if Ladsky also used Mossack Fonseca, as he did for Jefferson House Ltd and FMC Ltd.

(See Freeholder # 2 for subsequent events)

(4)- The 'airspace' for Jefferson House became a "lessee" of Lavagna Enterprises in January 2006

In the context of this 'reshuffling' and 'carving out', the 'Airspace of Jefferson House', title BGL 51 266 also became a "LESSEE" of Lavagna Enterprises.

The transactions in terms of the 'Airspace of Jefferson House' go back to 2003,...

...as can be seen on the Land Registry title NGL 373 333, for Steel Services, obtained on 26.04.04 - which states:

"22 September 2003 - Agreement for lease of the air space above the roof of 7-13 Basil Street dated 15 September 2003 in favour of Steel Services Limited"

Hence, this agreement was obtained 'from Jefferson House Limited' (the "freeholder" ) = Andrew David Ladsky (e.g., above).

The title for the 'Airspace of Jefferson House', title BGL 51 266, indicates that, on 22 Oct 04, a transaction took place between Jefferson House Ltd and Steel Services Ltd (for £110,000) (US$194,000) for:

"The leasehold..being Airspace of Jefferson House, 7-13 Basil Street , London SW3 1AX"

It gives Steel Services as "proprietor" , "care of Martin Russell Jones".

 

According to the 22 Feb 06 Land Registry copy of NGL 373 333 i.e. the title for Steel Services, 2 days before the above transaction took place i.e. on 20 Oct 04 the

"Airspace abutting and above the level of the roof of Jefferson House has been removed from this title"

The last page of the title for 'Airspace of Jefferson House', title BGL 51 266, states that on 10 Aug 05, title BGL 54 458 became "the lessee of Airspace of Jefferson House '.

This is the title for the penthouse constructed on Jefferson House during 2004 - 2006 (See Photo gallery).

(NB: Penthouse that was "categorically NOT going to be built" (Brian Gale, MRICS, 13.12.02 "Expert Witness" report (Gale # 7)),...

..."because it was not a viable proposition" (Joan Hathaway, MRICS, MRJ - 04.03.03 letter - and ended-up being advertised in Oct 07 for £6,500,000 (US$11.5m)) (Overview # 3).

Associated with the title for the penthouse is also a car parking space, title BGL 47 667.

What is worth noting - given that the 'Airspace had been removed' from the title for Steel Services on 20 Oct 04 - is that - nearly one year later - the party to the transaction was Steel Services. The other party was 'Sloan(E) Development(S)' (point # 6 below)

Back to list

 

(5)- The 'airspace' was then transferred "BY Steel Services", "FROM Steel Services" TO "Rootstock Overseas Corp", Panama, for "£1" on 8 January 2007

Following my 16.05.08 letter to Portner and Jaskel, asking for documents from its 04.02.08 standard disclosure (Portner # 24),...

...one turned out to be a 08.01.07 transaction for Jefferson House's airspace - stating, on the Land Registry 'Transfer of whole of registered title(s)':

“3. Property: Airspace of Jefferson House, 7 to 13 Basil Street, London SW3 1AX”

4. Date: 8/1/07

5. Transferor: Steel Services Limited" (1)

"6. Transferee: Rootstock Overseas Corp.

7. Transferee's intended address(es) for service (including postcode) for entry on the registry. You may give up to three addresses for service one of which must be a postal address but does not have to be within the UK.

The other addresses can be any combination of a postal address, a box number at a UK document exchange or an electronic address:" (2)

"Edificio PH Plaza 2000, Calle 50, Apartado 6307" [3]", Panama 5, Republic of Panama

9. The Transferor has received from the Transferee for the Property the sum of One Pound £1.00)

13. Signed as a deed on behalf of Steel Services Ltd, a company incorporated in the British Virgin Islands by Enrique Sibauste" [4]", being a person who, in accordance with the laws of that territory, is acting under the authority of the company"

(1) - Ditto in this instance: as the 'airspace' was "a lessee" of Lavagna Enterprises at the beginning of 2006 - as was Steel Services...

... - how to explain that, in Jan 07, Steel Services is the "transferor" of the title to Rootstock? Surely, Lavagna Enterprises should be the "transferor"?

I repeat my above explanation (# 1) that these offshore paper companies have the SAME multi-criminal Rachman individual attempting to hide behind them: Andrew David Ladsky (see also, # 7, below) (and 'maybe' the creation of Lavagna Enterprises as a superior headlessor was done for the purpose of borrowing money?)

(2); (3) = A private address; (4) - The right - stated on this Land Registry document i.e. under UK legislation - to give "up to 3 address, that do not have to be in the UK " - combined with the use of "sham directors" (BVI # 2)...

... - make a complete, and very clearly - deliberate - mockery of legislation claiming to 'give' leaseholders 'the right' to know who controls their home.

As I wrote under paras 52 to 56 of my 03.06.08 Witness Statement (WLCC # 30), the 8 Jan 07 transaction still left many questions unanswered. Indeed - in addition to the above:

  • Why are the 'service charge' demands in the name of 'Steel Services' - post the transfer of its title to Rootstock? (Portner # 6.1 ; # 7 ; # 15)
  • Why has Steel Services been stated on several occasions, including on a court claim (filed by Portner and Jaskel against the Elderly Resident), as the "freeholder" given that Land Registry records state Jefferson House Limited? (Freehold)
  • What's the story behind Basil Street Properties - Gibraltar (at least, at Feb 06)? (Owners identity # 4)

Under para.55 of my 03.06.08 Witness Statement, I wrote:

"Sale of the title of the airspace to Rootstock for “£1” – by Steel Services - demonstrates that the plethora of companies is just ‘off-the-shelf’ names on paper, traded in monopoly board game style"

Back to list

 

(6)- 'SLOAN DEVELOPMENT' (likely to also be 'SloanE DevelopmentS') is another 'off-the-shelf', paper company, said to also be registered in the British Virgin Islands (at least in April 2004)

Like Steel Services Ltd, Jefferson House Ltd and Lavagna Enterprises Ltd, 'Sloan Development' was said to be 'registered' in the British Virgin Islands...

...- at least, as shown for example on the title for apartment # 7 (BGL 43 656), at 26 Apr 04. (This title shows that 'Sloan Development' acquired the lease for apartment # 7 on 15 Apr 04)

(Other transactions involving 'Sloan Development' are discussed under Owners identity # 4, Apart # 7).

OF NOTE: A c.12 Jan 04 Companies House's DCA form, in the name of SloanE DevelopmentS Limited, was returned by a C. SCHAFFALITZKY, (below) - stating:

"Company number: 4425 405"

"Report for year-ended 30 April 2003"

"Net assets: £2"

"Authorised share capital: 1,000 ordinary shares of £1.00 each"

"Issued share capital: 2 ordinary shares of £1.00 each"

Although there is a difference in the spelling of the name relative to the Land Registry documents, in the light of 'the financials', and of its date of incorporation (April 2002) - my guess is that it is the same 'company'.

It is evidently not a trading company (and was described as "dormant" in 2005, when I researched it). Hence, it is like many of the other 'paper companies' linked in some way to Jefferson House (see Directorships # 3).

At 2005, it listed two individuals as "shareholders" (each £1 share) and "directors":

"Previous directors" were given as:

  • INSTANT COMPANIES LIMITED
  • SWIFT INCORPORATIONS LIMITED

(Both some 'company secretary' type of companies?)

On 28 Nov 05, a transaction took place between 'Sloan Development' and Andrew Ladsky whereby Ladsky became the owner of the lease for apartment 7 - as can be seen from the title obtained on 22 Feb 06). (Owners identity # 4)

Further evidence of the link with Ladsky is that 'Sloan Development' had mail addressed to "The Office, Jefferson House" - from which I assumed that the actual addressee was likely to be Ladsky. (He used apartment # 9 as his office e.g. his 26.03.07 pack of lies letter to my then employer, KPMG).

Re. 'Sloan(E) Development(S)' - see also Overview # 11 / WLCC # 1 for the (2nd) fraudulent claim filed against me in West London County Court. "Rootstock Overseas / Steel Services / Sloan Development" - listed in the file document path on the 27.02.07 claim i.e. Andrew Ladsky - dropped "ALL of the claim" against me.

Two other documents also contained the name '"Sloan Development" in the file path:

(1)- the 04.02.08 so-called 'standard disclosure' (Portner # 24.1);

(2)- the 06.06.08 Notice of discontinuance (Portner # 29 ; Overview # 11). (The outcome of this 2nd fraudulent claim provides undeniable evidence that the threat of forfeiture and bankruptcy proceedings, as well as court claims = fraud tools).

Back to list

 

(7)- I hold the view that multi-criminal Rachman Andrew David Ladsky has been the main driver of the above transactions (as well as others covered under Freehold and Owners identity)

Further suggesting this, are the printscreens I captured from the Land Registry website at the time I was doing a search on 'Airspace of Jefferson House', title BGL 51 266 (Portner # 1).

As can be seen from the printscreens (which are included after the title), they consistently brought-up apartment 9, BGL 10 950, owned by Andrew Ladsky.

This includes pursuing the search from there for the freehold title, BGL 69 051.

My conclusion at the time of doing the above search in Feb 06 proved to be correct: in his 26.03.07 letter to my then employer, KPMG, Ladsky gave 'Flat 9' as his address at Jefferson House.

Note also that, in the "summary of contributions to the major works", attached to the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales's 'reply' of 29.08.06, Ladsky who is / was the registered owner of apartments # 34 and # 35 since the year 2000, had NOT paid any contribution.

This is an addition to other evidence that Andrew Ladsky and Steel Services are / were one and the same - see Advisors to Jefferson House: Cawdery Kaye Fireman & Taylor (CKFT) ; Portner and Jaskel ; Laytons ; Martin Russell Jones (MRJ) ; Brian Gale.

And clearly, the same applies in relation to 'Rootstock Overseas' - given the sale of the airspace on 08.01.07 for "£1" BY Steel Services to 'Rootstock Overseas Corp'.

Furthermore, the name of 'Sloan(E) Development(S)' (# 6, above) in the file path of the 27.02.07 claim filed against me, and in the 06.06.08 Notice of Discontinuance, means that 'Sloan(E) Development(S)' can also be added. Hence:

The multi-criminal Rachman Andrew David Ladsky is the common denominator behind:

(1)- Steel Services (Owners identity); British Virgin Islands (when Ladsky paid the licence fee!);

(2)- Rootstock Overseas Corp, Panama (# 3, above);

(3)- Lavagna Enterprises (Owners identity # 3 ; # 2, above);

(4)- 'Sloan[E] Development[S]' (# 6, above);

(5)- Basil Street Properties, Gibraltar (Owners identity # 4);

(6)- F.M.C. Ltd (Owners identity # 1); British Virgin Islands;

(7)- Jefferson House Limited (Freehold # 1); British Virgin Islands;

(8)- Greyclyde Investments Ltd (Freehold # 2).

(As can be seen from the list under Directorships, Ladsky - et.al. - have a high propensity to accumulate a plethora of 'companies'...like others in the sector e.g. the Tchenguiz Brothers...

...- while making full use of their offshore, as well as UK company law and Land Registry right to hide their identity).

Back to list

 

(8)- The transactions with 'Lavagna Enterprises' and 'Rootstock Overseas Corp' amount to criminal offences by 'Steel Services' i.e. Andrew Ladsky

As a first point - considering the highly material implications of the deals on the contract i.e. my Lease I did NOT receive any communication from Martin Russell Jones / Steel Services about the above transactions.

I only found out as a result of undertaking research following the fraudulent 10 Feb 06 "Notice" (Portner # 1), and in the context of the 27 Feb 07 fraudulent claim filed against me (Overview # 11).

In my 30.04.06 letter to Daniel Broughton, Portner and Jaskel (see Notices by landlord - 10 February 2006 for detail), (based on my 'non-lawyer' assessment) I wrote that the transactions between Lavagna Enterprises and Steel Services amount to criminal offences under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987 as 'Steel Services' did not issue a 'Notice of disposal by landlord' i.e. offer me first refusal in relation to these disposals.

Indeed, Section 10A. - (1) of the 1987 Act states:

"Offence of failure to comply with the requirements of Part I"

 "A landlord commits an offence if, without reasonable excuse, he makes a relevant disposal affecting premises to which this Part applies" (i.e. Part of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987)

"(a) without having first complied with the requirements of section 5 as regards the service of notices on the qualifying tenants

"(2) A person guilty of an offence under this section is liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding level 5 on the standard"

Hence, this type of offence is categorised as "criminal".

The SAME applies in relation to the transactions between 'Steel Services' and 'Rootstock Overseas Corp' as:

(1)- in the case of the transfer of the title from Steel Services to Rootstock on 24 May 06 (# 3, above), the 10.02.06 "Notice of disposal" issued by Daniel Broughton, Portner and Jaskel, is fraudulent, as it misrepresented the property being offered - which was done "deliberately";

events are summarised in my 30.04.06 letter to Broughton (Portner # 1 ; Notices by landlord # 3 ; My Diary 18 Feb 06 and 29 Apr 06);

(2)- in relation to the 8 Jan 07 transfer of the 'airspace' from Steel Services to Rootstock Overseas Corp (# 5, above): I did not receive a notice.

Back to list

 

(9)- I am left without knowing who has legal responsibility to perform the covenants in my Lease

As to the impact on the performance by 'the landlord' of the covenants in my Lease - as I stated in the introduction to this page:

I do not know who controls my home, and therefore, WHO has legal responsibility to perform the covenants in my Lease.

Examples of covenants in my Lease:

"Clause 5 - The lessor hereby covenants with the lessees"

"5 (1) to maintain repair."

"5 (1) (a) the roofs...chimney stacks gutters.."

"5 (1) (b).water pipes electric cables and wires and supply lines.upon the building."  

"5 (1) (c) the boiler and heating and hot water apparatus."

"5 (1) (d) the passenger lifts lift shafts and machinery."

"5 (2)(4) "To insure and keep insured the building.and in case of destruction of or damage to the building or any part thereof so as to make the same unfit for habitation and use. to lay out all monies received in respect of such insurance . in rebuilding and reinstating the same.."

HOORAY for this and previous governments ensuring – deliberately - that leaseholders are kept totally in the dark as to the entity that controls their home i.e. their main financial asset,...

...by allowing individuals to hide behind offshore, paper companies and "sham directors" - making leaseholders' so-called 'statutory right' to know who controls their home - a complete and utter farce.

Feudalism is definitely alive and kicking (in more ways than one) in this island-Kingdom that treats its 'little people' as serfs!

Back to list

 

(10)- My request to Her Majesty's Land Registry to have the Lavagna Enterprises title revoked - led, typically, to a repeated 'GET LOST!'

Given the very serious impact on my Lease of Steel Services becoming "a lessee of Lavagna Enterprises" (# 2, above) and losing control of the last floor of Jefferson House, in my 28.03.06 letter to the Land Registry, I pointed out that the

"Acquisition of the headlease Title NGL 373 333 by Lavagna Enterprises, a superior headlessor first registered by the Land Registry on 31 January 2006, under Title BGL 56 642, has rendered the headlease materially defective"

I explained that the outcome of the above transactions between Steel Services, Lavagna Enterprises and Jefferson House Limited had led to Steel Services no longer having control of the roof - as "it is now in the hands of a superior headlessor". Consequently, it could no longer perform the above mentioned covenants in my lease.

I therefore requested that the lease granted to Lavagna Enterprises be revoked.

In support of my request, I highlighted the case of Kintyre Ltd v Romeomarch Property Management Ltd in which the Land Registry Adjudicator dismissed the application to register the lease, because:

"The roof space was required for the proper management of the roof."

 

I consider the initial reply of 04.04.06 from a Mrs L Booth at Her Majesty's Land Registry as a blatantly obvious - and typical: 'GET LOST!, I am not going to do anything against a sacrosanct landlord' '. Among others, it states:

"Regrettably, I do not have details of the Adjudicator case referred to in your letter and am unable to comment further on that decision"

"I regret that the Registry is unable to simply revoke the lease and title of BGL 56642"

"The Registry is not able to provide legal advice and I would suggest that you seek independent legal advice in respect of your concerns"

As the Land Registry was, at the time, comprised under Lord Falconer of Thoroton's department, the then Department for Constitutional Affairs, in the light of my previous experience with some of his department's divisions (West London County Court, the Legal Services Ombudsman - and the Court Service), this reply came as no surprise.

Extracts from my 18.04.06 reply to the Land Registry (in relation to its claim of "not having detail of the case" ):

"I read this as an admission that your Office does not have the capability to implement the requirements comprised under the Land Registration Act 2002. In particular:

Section 73 - Objections:  

(1) "anyone may object to an application to the registrar"

(7) "If it is not possible to dispose by agreement of an objection.the registrar must refer the matter to the adjudicator"

I followed this by stating that, "given the situation", I was enclosing a copy of the case, as well as copy of pages from the Adjudicator website detailing the Adjudicator's role and contact details.

As to the suggestion that I "seek legal advice" , I replied:

"1. Your Office granted the title - I did not.

2. Consequently, your Office created the resultant situation of, among others, my headlessor, Steel Services, being unable to perform highly material covenants in my lease - not I.

3. Therefore, it is up to your Office - not I - to undo what has been done.

4. Consequently, I suggest you - rather than I - seek legal advice".

This led to the 2nd (typical) 'Get Lost!' from the Land Registry this time from a M G Garwook, dated 25.04.06 - stating:

"... the case of Kintyre Ltd v Romeomarch Property Management Ltd...the facts are [different]" (1)

"...you feel that the roof space is required for the proper management of the premises [2], but is not comprised in Steel Services Limited's title."

"It does not, however, follow that the lease registered under title BGL 56642, which includes the roof space, is void.

As to what action, if any, is possible to resolve the perceived difficulty is not a matter upon which the Registrar can advise". (3)
