Hello, I wonder if you can help me. I am in a legal dispute with my mother over the proceeds of the sale of a flat that I used to own. My mother can barely read or write, nor understand English. There are other members of my family who are driving this case forward. My mother (and my father) have always lived with me when they came to this country in Jan 2000. I had been fully supporting them until now. I recently got married and moved in with my husband. My parents were supposed to go and live with my eldest sister as I wanted to sell my flat. My parents refused to move out, then lodged a claim with the land registry, stating that I had transferred the ownership of my flat to my mother based on “moneys” she had lent me during the past 14 years. The claim was based on a clumsily forged document, dated March 2007, hand-written (by more than one person) in Persian, and on a piece of lined notepad paper. Several family members had also witnessed this document. One of the witnesses is my youngest sister, one is unidentified (I know it is my father), one witness (my niece) was 17 years old at the time. My own signature is also forged. The property had always been subject to a mortgage which has been paid by me alone. I could never have transfer the property to anyone else, even if I wanted to. The document had been given for translation, and the translated text (dated Nov’ 2007), was lodged with the Land Registry in Dec’ 2014. The land registry accepted the translation as is, and put a restriction on the title!? Despite my several attempts, the land Registry would not accept that they had not followed correct procedures, or that they had done anything wrong, and insisted that I should fight my mother directly! Following a domestic incident in Sep’ 2014, the police were called and my parents were forcefully removed from my flat. It is during this incident that my father, for the first time, brought out this document and showed it to the police to stop them from getting evicted, and this was the first time that I had ever seen the document. They got evicted anyhow when my mother tried to attack me in front of the police. I managed to sell the flat eventually through a loophole (appointment of a trustee to hold the proceeds of the sale), but when my mother found out, she insisted that the proceeds belonged to her. I naturally disagreed, but I was also advised not to spend the money until the dispute was resolved. Despite three months of chasing, my mother’s solicitor has only just replied by sending me a very long list of unrelated bank statements, mostly belonging to my father, which proves nothing at all. Despite several requests, they made no attempt to explain the circumstances in which the document they rely on was prepared and signed. My family are only doing this because they, they do not want to have my parents with them. Knowing that my mother is very old, has no money, and will have nothing to lose, but are prepared to drag this on for ever if necessary. Unfortunately I can no longer afford to take this matter any further with the help of my current solicitor due to health reasons. I have also been taking too much time off work and do not qualify for legal aid. It is quite clear that my mother has nothing to do with this case and the “family” are the driving force behind it all. But I don’t know what I can do to stop them. My mother’s solicitor has made no attempt what so ever to employ the services of a translator and has relied totally on the say so of other family members. My questions are as follows: [-1-] How do I stop my family from driving the case. Alternatively, how can I force their solicitor to at least employ a translator for my mother? [-2-] I am told that I can only go to court by “issuing proceedings under the S14 (2)Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act (TLATA) for a declaration that my mother does not have any beneficial entitlement to the net proceeds of sale”. I am also told that this will cost £100,000 by my solicitor. IS THIS TRUE? [-3-] I need to know if I should contact the Police and report those involved for forgery? [-4-] If I call the police, will it have any ramification on me? I look forward to your reply. Thanks in advance.
