To all MPs listed.
This is about the CMA.
The CMA was set up to stop cartels from operating.
The CMA’s total budget for 2021–22 is £109.6 million and as at 31 August 2021, has 829 staff (excluding Agency workers).
The criminal cartel offence applies to individuals who engage in hardcore cartel activity, namely agreeing to fix prices, share customers or markets, restrict output or rig bids.
In England and Wales, and in Northern Ireland, prosecutions may only be brought by the CMA or the Serious Fraud Office,
or with the consent of the CMA. Prosecutions will generally be undertaken by the CMA.
The Enterprise Act 2002 (EA02) also gives the Secretary of State a reserve power to
make a market investigation reference if he or she is not satisfied with a CMA.
The CMA have been found ignoring a cartel.
I put forward that the CMA staff have failed by design to help in a crime.
The CMA is accountable to the UK parliament.
I ask for this to be done as we can show a cartel of probate lawyers controlling deceased family homes, estate agents and RICS fraud reports, all done to rob the elderly estates.

TO David Stewart, Executive Director
Jonathan Scott Chair of the CMA
Andrea Coscelli CEO
This is a official complaint and will be used in court.
I want David Stewart, Executive Director, Jonathan Scott Chair of the CMA and Andrea Coscelli CEO, involved in this and know this case is going on.
I want an investigation into “Rikki Holt” and how he cannot see a cartel being run in this case.
The CMA was set up to stop cartels from operating.
A cartel is a group of independent market participants who collude with each other in order to improve their profits and dominate the market (see probate lawyers & estate agents).
And in the past, you took criminal actions against a group of estate agents for doing a cartel, and we have a group of estate agents that you chose not to investigate in this case.
The Past CMA Examples are the following:
And the laws involved are
Competition Act 1998
The Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008
s1 TA 1968 (theft) (Appropriation s3) (Property s4) (Belonging to another s5) (Dishonesty s2) (Intention to permanently to deprive s6) & murders.
In my case, we have the following,
Please see exhibits, photos, files from estate agents, files from lawyers etc
1.0 A property surveyor called Alan Lovatt did a RICS survey on my mother’s property which was a fraud as it underpriced my mother’s home (32 Hoole Road) by 120%.
And he has done it to others see Yale.com. And we can prove he is part of a Cartel by his past work.
2.2 And in court documents, James Beresford (JB), who asked AL to do this RICS report, states that this RICS report was wrong when he was found out doing wrong himself.
2.3 But then JB did not do a new RICS report on my mother’s home, to avoid the true value from being found.
2.4 Then the firm that did the RICS report has a boss which does not exist and has other complaints about it.
3.5 Then you have three estate agents who list the property prices as high until the property is under control of the probate lawyers.
4.0 And before this the probate lawyer (James Bereford of BLM Manchester and the other one P. Bartlett of Chester-different law firms) ignore two buyers for a million for 32 Hoole Road,
Then to lower the value of the property they damaging the property, and did a false RISC report etc.
5.0 And other estate agents from outside the area, state that 32 Hoole Road should go for more than £800,000 plus (paper work sent to CMA).
6.0 And the probate lawyer James Beresford, broke a court order three times and undertaken to the court, to sell property 32 Hoole Road for £750,000 minimum.
7.0 The reason the lawyer did this was to con next store of 32 Hoole Road, which is 30 Hoole Road, to make them think their late mother’s home which the probate lawyer P. Bartlett was controlling was worth only £400,000
8.0 And this false price by the probate lawyer was supported by a cartel estate agents (paperwork sent) also saying 30 Hoole Road was only worth £400,000 which was a lie. ( A group ..a cartel)
9.0 But then the property at 28 Hoole Road, which is the semi detached other half of 30 Hoole Road, which was NOT under the control of the probate lawyers or the group of estate agents, was listed by an international firm and sold for 740,000 in two weeks.
10.0 And 28 Hoole Road is identical to 30 Hoole Road.
11.0 And 28 Hoole Road (5 small bed rooms & 2 wc) is half the size of 32 Hoole Road (12 massive bedrooms all with wc) so how can 32 Hoole Road be only 500,000????
12.0 And the same for 42 Hoole Road which was done by the same cartel (same lawyers and estate agents).
13.0 Also JB also listed 32 Hoole Road for £500,000 on an auction site to help cover up the actions of Probate lawyer P.Bartlett (PB) who by force took control of the Will of this estate and the sale of 32 Hoole Road in the past.
14.0 And when PB controlled my mother’s estate, PB stated the property 32 Hoole Road was worth only 450,000 but he runs an estate agents and his office is 31 Hoole Road.
15.0 Which is next to a property like 32 Hoole Road which went in the past for 750,000
16.0 PB also stated there was 100,000 debts to 32 Hoole Road estate but this was a lie (to force the sale of 32 Hoole Road) and so he was removed but all that happened was JB was appointed as probate lawyer to cover up PB crimes.
17.0 And PB had no right to the Will of 32 Hoole Road estate, he did this by buying the law firm to control the area of property so he could control the prices. Another Cartel.
18.0 Many families were under distress of losing the family which PB enjoyed.
19.0 And we have a tape recording of undertakers saying this is being done to the elderly and a person at the undertakers stating the cartel is controlling their mother’s home sale and it’s going half price to the cartel friends.
And others saying it was sold cheap by these probate lawyers & estate agents and then later on the property is sold for its true value.
BUT they are still in grief and see they have been robbed and report it to the police detective MA who does nothing. And MA gives legal work to PB. PB who in the past was fined 300,000 by the law society (see below past email)
20.0 And journalists are saying this is a cartel
21.0 The fact is we have an estate agents saying my mother’s property and others, should be sold for £800,000 minimum but when a probate lawyers take over it is sold for £500,000 by estate agents, and to people the catel know.
22.0 And you, the CMA, have been sent all this paperwork.
23.0 I put forward that the CMA is ignoring a cartel and you need to be investigated.
24.0 Who will investigate the corrupt CMA?
I want to know as soon as possible, please tell me.
Do I now talk to The Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) ?
25.0 And someone in the CMA benefits from these crimes?
26.0 And this is being done all over the UK to the elderly by this type cartel.
27.0 Note the issues of money laundering etc and connection to terrorism are part of this problem.
28.0 Has CMA told anyone about this? If so who?
I want a Freedom of Information to know if you have told police, fraud etc about these crimes.
29.0 To sum up
We have estate agents (4 of them) given the wrong price to reduce the value, but we can show with 30 Hoole, 28 Hoole, 32 Hoole Road and 42 Hoole Road prices manipulation.
Also, we can show that the group of probate lawyers controls the price.
And other good lawyers have said this is going on all over the UK but scared to act against the cartel.
And other people are profiting from it to, including estate agents, local council staff (who put the elderly against their wishes into care homes to get the property onto the market to the cartel) etc
And CMA staff?
30.0 I want a proper investigation.
Please see my past email below.
I hope to hear from you soon.

To all MPs listed.
TO David Stewart, Executive Director
Jonathan Scott Chair of the CMA
Andrea Coscelli CEO
I am asking what is going on with this price fixing issue of properties by probate lawyers.
CMA did investigate estate agents in the past and there is evidence that this case involves them in price fixing.
Also the fact that RICS report was used to help in the fraud.
Also, as pointed out by lawyers the following has also been broken.
The Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008
s1 TA 1968 (theft) (Appropriation s3) (Property s4) (Belonging to another s5) (Dishonesty s2) (Intention to permanently to deprive s6)
The CMA should act.
There is the trick of price fixing being done to many elderly people’s property (fraud) and this is making them into targets for killing (murder) as that is also very easy to do as the police do nothing.
The network of criminals are Probate lawyers (4 names) , RICS agents (2 names), Estate agents (2 names) etc
The crime is invisible due to this network.
Therefore, remove the price fixing (fraud) on the properties and there will be fewer reasons to kill the elderly.
The facts are the following and they are all criminal issues.
1. Probate lawyer PB controls wills and runs up false debts on the estates (he lied about 100,000 debt in my mother’s case- that is fraud and states property is cheap to control the sale). This is a police matter.
1.1 Probate lawyer PB was in 2006 done by the law society (fine 300,000 see file) , and someone else did the fall for him.
1.2 Probate lawyer PB buys law firms to control the wills, probate and sale of the properties. By doing this he can price fix the property prices.
2. Police detective MA from 2007 oversees care of the elderly in Chester.
MA also uses PB, which he should of not have done as he knows about the above and gained from my mother’s will, which he never did in the first place. PB changed the Will to help MA.
2.1 Medical paperwork shows my mother stating before she was murdered that MA is robbing her and forcing her to sell her home cheap against her wishes.
2.2 In the Dec 2019 court case the court appointed expert states my mother is telling the truth that she was hit and forced to sell her home against her wishes by lawye who works for PB.
2.3 And in the Dec 2019 court case MA uses the lawyer PB…which MA should of kept clear of
2.4 When I try and reopen my mother’s inquest MA threatens my daughter etc.
3. Then when PB is removed from my mother’s estate, Probate lawyer named JB was put in charge of covering up the crimes of probate lawyer PB.
3.1 JB ignores the fraud of 100,000 bills from PB that never existed or the fact that PB said my mother’s home (32 Hoole Road) is worth £450,000.
The office of PB is 31 Hoole Road and he runs an estate agent and knows the true value of 32 Hoole Road is nearly a million.
3.2 Probate lawyer JB then ignores two buyers for my mother’s home for a million by the orders of PB. This is shown by their own paper work see SAR. See also court paper work. This is fraud.
4. JB uses RICS reports by AL, which are fabricated and give false prices to undervalue my mother’s home by £600,000.
5. When AL is found out, he goes to work for the police as he knows MA etc
6. JB breaks 3 court orders to sell my mother’s home for 750,000 min to instead list it for 500,000 to make PB look like he never did a crime.
6.1 A judge states JB should not break court orders and JB does an undertaking to the court to sell 32 Hoole Road for 750,000 min, but then breaks it again.
7. JB list my mother’s home at 500,000 so property at 30 Hoole Road thinks that PB is telling them the truth as he controls their probate will and says their late mother’s home is 400,000 (Fraud)
8. BUT then 28 Hoole Road goes for 740,000 in two weeks as it is not under the control of the probate lawyers, PB and JB.
So PB and JB could not price fix the sale of 28 Hoole Road. All fraud.
9. The property at 28 Hoole Road is semi detached, mirroring half of 30 Hoole Road and identical.
The facts are the following and they are all criminal issues.So PB stating that 30 Hoole Road is 400,000 is fraud and JB listing 32 Hoole Road was done to help in fraud to con 30 Hoole Road to sell it for 400,000.
10. The property at 28 Hoole Road is half the size of 32 Hoole Road and has only 5 small rooms and 2 WC and sold for 740,000. No land to build on.
BUT 32 Hoole Road has 12 massive rooms, all with WC, and there is enough land it owns (car park) to build two 28 Hoole Road on its land.
Therefore 32 Hoole Road must be worth more than 740,000 which is what the small 28 Hoole Road sold for.
11. In addition, 30 Hoole Road and 32 Hoole Road claim their mother was murdered, wills were changed, and Chester police are bent.
12. Undertakers are on tape with a client complaining about PB and how he took over the estate..and their mother died strangely….
13. PB does a bankruptcy petition on me but the paperwork to JB shows PB is doing this to shut me up and in court PB loses and must pay me.
Issue price fixing of properties example of 30 Hoole Road, 30 Hoole Road, 28 Hoole Road and 42 Hoole Road and …..
The fact that my mother’s guest house (32 Hoole Road, CH23NJ) was listed to be sold by court order for £750,000 but we found the price-fixing of the property was done (see attachment)
Then the probate lawyers (PB, JB) tried to sell it for 500,000 to trick another property into thinking their property is worth only 400,000 (30 Hoole Road).
Note 30 Hoole Road property (6 small rooms) is half the size of the 32 Hoole Road property (12 massive rooms all WC) which also has land to build two 30 Hoole Roads on.
But next store to 30 Hoole Road, and its other half which is a semidetached, sold for 740,000 in two weeks when these probate lawyers were not controlling the sale or using estate agents to give false prices.
Here’s a link to a website.
My friend, who runs a news blog, has written several times about this issue.
And now, with the next store also saying, the same probate lawyers have told her that her mother’s home is worth £400,000.
(Also many others had same issue…parents home worth 700,000 but lawyers had it for 400,000 then sold it for 800,000 etc. Also they state their parents were killed by …)
My mother’s home, the same probate lawyers who said it was worth £450,000
And the lawyers ignored two buyers for my mother’s home for a million and did everything they could to damage the property.
The lawyers also did an RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) report, which was so corrupt they could not use it in court, and the RICS also stated this report was a fraud.
And the person who did this RICS report (AL), when found out to be doing fraud, then went to work for the police.
All of this is documented in the attachment.
They now state the property 32 Hoole Road has sold for 500,000 which is breaking the court order of Dec 2019 (750,000 minimum) and shows involvement in other crimes of price fixing.
As Chester Police were told about these crimes but did not take any action, and in fact, we will show in court that Chester Police gained from these crimes, I now ask for your insurance as I will be suing you for the loss and your failure of duty of care.
I also point out that 30 and 32 Hoole Road and others state their parents were murdered for their homes and the police gained from this and helped in these crimes.
Issue RICS report to help in crime Criminal
RICS report which was done to help in price-fixing and helping in fraud and all done to help the lawyers to rob the estates of families in grief.
3.2 JB did a RICS report by a person Andew Lovatt aka “AL” not based locally (External page 17-which he should be).
“AL” did the RICS report stated it was an internal inspection to help with the sale (page 17).
But the RICS report did not state things like possible subsidence due to a crack (size of a car) in a room which his photos showed the room but not the crack (page 40-41).
So “AL” did not do the photo or the report? The RICS report showed a photo of a kitchen with a cellar (page 42) but the report did not talk about the cellar that could flood.
The RICS representative AL stated that the property was worth 345,000 (page 18), but others stated that it was worth 800,000 (See external exhibits doc pages 7 & 8).RICS has said this report is fraud. AL then left the company to work for MA (see External page 21) who also tried to get mothers home cheap in the past).
But when JB was found out, he dropped all of this but still the file does not have JB name on it (External page 20) Or the fact that JB needs 6 people to sell the property, see SAR of BLM when JB used CP to do his work (page 33). All JB had to do was sell it in 2020 Jan.
All the paperwork is on
Richard Collins will replace Sean Tompkins,
his predecessor who resigned last month in the wake of the findings of a report into a governance scandal at the institution.
13 Oct 2021
The RICS website states:
The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) promotes and enforces the highest professional qualifications
and standards in the development and management of land, real estate, construction and infrastructure.
So this is an Official Complaint about Andew Lovatt OF RICS
MRICS Membership number
Qualified 01 Oct 1986
And is still listed as
He did the evaluation on 32 Hoole Road which was done for helping in fraud and murder of my mother and others.
And property price fixing, see below and past email.
In the past he was listed on RICS as a person that can be trusted?
Which shows that Andrew Lovatt works for the police (IMAGE BELOW FROM THE PAST)
And now there is no inquest or investigation of the elderly dying so setting up a dangerous situation.
Issue of lawyers which the SAR & police have done nothing about.
Issues Criminal and cover up.
I reported the following police detectives who are involved in these crimes.
This was over a year now and nothing has come back to me, so this is now an Official Complaint to Police outside the NorthWest
Detective Chief Inspector Michael Ankers (MA). Who is my late sister son in law.
MA also from 2007 oversaw the issues (reports of crimes etc) of the elderly who were also being robbed by the probate lawyers.
I have a recording of others saying they were too scared to come forward about the lawyers robbing the estate.
Who gains from helping the probate lawyers listed in the 2nd issue above?
And is listed in my mother’s medical records where she states she states he is stealing from her and forcing her to sell her home cheaply.
And now, as part of my late late sister’s estate, he is assisting in the sale of my mother’s home for a low price.
Why would he want a property that, if sold, could make money for him other than to help cover up the fact that the previous probate lawyer tried to get the home for a low price by controlling the will through the probate they controlled?
Then the 2nd police detective is Detective Sergeant Nomdedeu (N).
Police Dective N lied at my mother’s inquest was a lie, and now we can show that in the Dec 2019 court case,
The Dec 2019 court-appointed expert said my mother was telling the truth when she was hit by the lawyer trying to rob her and force her to steal her home, and this was helped by MA.
Also, at my mother’s inquest, Dr Bland lied saying he did not know Dr N but late on we found out that both of them signed the cremation documents together, so they did know each other.
They lied at my mother’s iquest.
And both of the doctors tried to kill my mother to shut her up as she was trying to tell them the fact that the above probate lawyer was robbing her and trying to get her home cheaply.
Also Dr Bland was struck off in 2018 as a pedo. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/anthony-bland-gp-with-26-000-child-abuse-images-is-struck-off-xlk35w99v
Dr Bland who ran the end of life for the elderly so he could help the lawyers bring the death forward to help the probate lawyers.
And the undertakers said this was going on.
And MA can not explain why he went to New Zealand after my mother’s inquest in 2015 to other than to threaten my child to shut me up.
All evidence is listed at the following web site.
UPDATE and why does MA keep using P. Bartlett lawyer when this lawyer is involved in all of this and was done by the law society.
March the 6th in 2006 by the Law Society File No 8751-2003 see attachment Bartlett-8751.03.pdf (1,512K). See Exhibit P1 & P2 Only when you read the file do you see the problems this person is and therefore he should not be an Executor of a Will. Start of Law Society File section 167.
The admitted allegations found substantiated against him were at the serious end of the scale. He had been found to have been guilty of conduct unbefitting in that he had compromised or impaired his integrity by making materially false and misleading statements to The Law Society, and had wholly failed to comply with his duties to handle clients’ complaints, ensure that clients were informed of the need for them to seek independent advice and bring conflicts to an end. His derelictions of duty as a solicitor had been so great as to play a principal part in the matters escalating and having to be placed before the Tribunal. The Tribunal considered it right to demonstrate to the solicitors’ profession and to the public that such behaviour on the part of a senior member of that profession would not be tolerated. The Tribunal ordered Bartlett to pay a financial penalty of £28,000.
180 It was right and proper that the matter should have been referred to the Tribunal not as an isolated matter but as part and parcel of the other allegations made against Bartlett. It was not the main and only matter alleged against Bartlett. Other extremely serious failings had been alleged against him and, indeed, Bartlett had come to admit them.
181 At the end of the first day, on the basis of the only evidence to be presented by The Law Society on that topic, the Tribunal had found the allegation of dishonesty against Bartlett concerning allegation 3 not proved to the requisite standard. The Tribunal made it clear however that the issue of dishonesty had been properly raised, fairly brought and that the case remained a serious one. Bartlett’s representatives had asked for time to discuss the residual allegations with each other and with the Law Society and the Tribunal agreed to adjourn. The parties reported back to the Tribunal on the second day
On the second day amended allegations were presented to the Tribunal by consent. Mr Bartlett admitted all of them. Then, in addition to the Solicitors Accounts Rules breaches and conduct unbefitting relating to his failures under allegations 4 to 8, Mr Bartlett admitted conducted unbefitting in that he had:
“compromised or impaired his integrity, good repute and that of the solicitors’ profession by making to the Office for the Supervision of Solicitors in the course of an enquiry that were materially false and misleading.”
This was the same allegation as that initially made absent the allegation that such
behaviour had been dishonest
Conduct which involves admitted compromise and impairment of integrity, and making statements to the Law Society that were materially false and misleading is clearly conduct that could have resulted in a striking off order. The fact that it did not for the reasons given by the Tribunal in its findings did not convert the case into a success for Bartlett such as to justify his being awarded his costs, or avoiding payment of the Law Society’s costs.
In answer to Bartlett’s assertion that if the matter had been put essentially as a failure to operate the complaints procedure correctly without the accusation of dishonesty the case would have been admitted much earlier and costs would have been avoided, the Tribunal found that the dishonesty allegation had been properly raised for adjudication. It was relevant that the same conduct that involved “compromise and impairment of integrity” and “making statements to the Law Society that were materially false and misleading” (most serious matters) was not admitted until the second day of the hearing, nor was its seriousness decided until the conclusion of the hearing. It was because of his reprehensible behaviour that Bartlett was the author of his own misfortune.
Even though the Tribunal found Bartlett not to have been guilty of dishonesty, he had admitted that the conduct leading to the allegation of dishonesty did amount to conduct unbefitting a solicitor in that he compromised or impaired his integrity, good repute and that of the solicitor’s profession by making statements to the Law Society in the course of an enquiry that were materially false and misleading. That admitted allegation was based on precisely the same conduct upon which the allegation of dishonesty had been founded. It was an extremely serious matter for that allegation to have been substantiated against Bartlett. It was because of this that the Tribunal considered that Bartlett case was very far from being on all fours with that of the successful solicitor appellant from an order of the Tribunal that he should be required to pay the Law Society’s costs, Mr Hayes.
In its Reasons the Tribunal had made it plain that it considered that Mr Bartlett had abdicated his clear responsibilities. …culpability for what occurred was in no small measure that of Mr Bartlett. 192. The Tribunal made no order that the Law Society should make any contribution towards the costs of Bartlett defence. 193. Tribunal concluded that it would be right that Bartlett pay 80% of the main costs and that Ms Entwisle pay 20% of the main costs,
NOTE 168 of the Law Society document says “Bartlett sought an order for costs against the Law Society as to some 90% of a total which was put at some £300,000.”
Full list of events
The History on the web of the events.
JB uses a Chartered Surveyors report which has no names in it. See 6 to 8 page Exhibit and website
Also see many questions by an expert
https://internationalscotland.com/2021/08/08/bartletts-of-chester-and-blm-law-property-price-fixing-scandal/I have 2048 signatures to say my mother’s inquest should be reopened as the inquest was done wrong to protect the murder of my mother.
And we can now show a doctor Bland involved in my mother’s murder etc was struck off in 2018 and other new evidence. AND MA & CA knew him.
And my mother was also killed as she said lawyer W, who works for PB, who hit my mother to force her to sell her home cheap.
Also my mother’s inquest in 2015 was done by a coroner (R) who others said they also had problems with him by covering up crimes (see link below).
And add to all of this…
JB did this to protect PB who price fixes property values to get them cheap including help by others who died strangely.
In 2015 Barbara Dunbavand (BD) wanted to help me, and she was an accountant who worked with all the rich elderly, and then she died strangely (see later part of this report). https://www.chesterstandard.co.uk/news/15977707.chester-woman-killed-by-glancing-blow-from-lorry-on-a55-inquest-told/
BD husband is Dr who knew Dr Bland and knew MA, W, and PB.
BD knew all the rich to target by PB. BD husband knew Dr Bland who put the elderly on the end of the pathway of death when they could live.
Dr Bland struck off in 2019
MA knew Dr Bland well
I could add Dr Bland lied at my mother’s inquest and the inquest tapes are still not released to the public as it shows how corrupt the inquest was as also 2 bent cops lie also.
From the Times and other newspapers it is also seen this was done to many others in the Northwest. Many elderly deaths could be part of these probate crimes.
And this is a common issues see
And as it is a protected crime by bent lawyers (PB, JB, CP etc), bent police (MA, N), bent judges (H) there are now criminals from other countries coming here to help in probate crime.
A crime that helps money laundering which helps fund terrorists.
And now others have been murdered (statements by the relatives of the deceased parents) to obtain their home to price fix by probate lawyers.
I hope to hear from you soon
