This site has been set up to help with our fight against Greenbelt Group and the worrying tactics used by Alex Middleton, Tony Burton, Richard Taylor David Armour and Bertie Basset, the directors.
Janet McQuillian, Fergus Cumming, K Richards aka Smith and John Beveridge who are Middletons puppets
The content on this site is a primarily a collection of legal snippets of civil law designed to protect consumers ie. us from sharp practices. These are mainly extracts copied from the actual printed regulations themselves.
I am please that this information is actually assisting people who feel they are undue pressure from Greenbelt who would rather you complain about the poor maintenance rather than the more important legal elements of there business which appears to be in conflict with a large proportion of consumer law.
Greenbelt detest this site as we are now informing large numbers of people and as a cosequence letters from Mr Beveridge are getting quite personal and irrational with untruths creeping into the content.
SEE HOUSE SALES AND DISPUTED DEBT
We now know of two scottish estates where Greenbelt have pulled out of the maintenance through high levels of non payment .
Resposibility will automatically revert back to the developer who have no power to appoint another land maintenance company due to laws regarding manager burdens.
DONT GIVE IN
Hi folks just a note to let you know the latest on our site in the Scottish Borders. We have fought GB all the way - over 8 years now of non-payment. They have threatened us with debt collectors, court action, mortgage provider action, phone calls and the likes and we have stayed strong. Every one an empty threat and now they are no longer! They have refused to maintain our site anymore as we would not buy it from them. They have now supposedly 'gifted' the land to adjacent residents outwith our estate and we couldn't be more delighted! GB no more! So the message is don't give in - fight them to the end and lets see the fall of these parasites
Levels of non payment are rising again despite what Greenbelt claim.
Remember Greenbelts claims are always ajusted to what suits them and rarely the truth.
FOR ESTATES IN ENGLAND, WALES AND NORTHERN IRELAND.
We need the support of your MP's. See info section
LAND-HOARDING ARRANGEMENT UNCOVERED
Greenbelt Group's own lawyer, Garry Sutherland from McNabs, has handed us a copy of a contract between Greenbelt Group and a developer section 5, which shows that Greenbelt Group obtains the land for nothing and must sell it back to the developer for £1. Thanks Garry.
BUILDING SOCIETY TELLS GREENBELT GROUP TO "DO ONE"
The Yorkshire Building Society has written to one of its customers to apologise for its actions in initially supporting Greenbelt Group's attempts to have so called "debts" to Greenbelt Group added to the homeowner's mortgage. It has said it will have no further dealings with Greenbelt Group in future - a stance being taken by all reputable banks and building societies thanks to the intervention of Gordon Banks MP and a few other very supportive politicians. Greenbelt Group can't go through the courts and it can't go through our lenders - it has ABSOLUTELY NO WAY WHATSOEVER OF GETTING MONEY OFF US!!
Greenbelt are contacting mortgage providers.
One of the things that they are claiming is that they, in effact are our landlords and we are leaseholders (the open spaces)
They are not our landlords or our feudal masters. they are a service provider, plain and simple
A standard letter should Greenbelt contact your mortgage provider and a letter Greenbelt have tried to get removed from this site.
We have some legal people onto this and our MP is meeting the council of Mortgage Lenders
These letters are designed to put pressure omto those who wish to withold payment and is NOTHING to do with our motgage providers. I have a copy of a letter recently sent to greenbelt on this issue.
Dear [add name]
I refer to your letter of [add date] in which [add name of lender] is threatening to add arbitrarily the sum off [add sum claimed] to my mortgate based on the claims of the land maintenace company Greenbelt Group Limited.
I, like many thousands of other homeowners across the UK, am currently withholding payment to Greenbelt Group on the following grounds:
Greenbelt Group is not a "leaseholder" as stated in your letter, and does not take homeowers to court as it is mandated to do under the terms of my title deeds in the event of non-payment [letter from the MD of Greenbelt Group stating this is available on request].
I am shocked that [add name of lender] is supporting the actions of this company and I will not hesitate to take legal action against [add name of lender] should the disputed sum of [add sum] be added to my mortgate account.
In recent years Greenbelt Group has been the subject of:
I have copied this letter to my MP and MSP. I would be happy to provide further evidence on request and to discuss the matter with you further. I expect to receive a formal response from you within the next seven days.
Consumer Focus Scotland has published a legal opinion with regards to Land maintenance companies such as Greenbelt.
It highlights in particular clauses under section 3 of the TCSA 2003 such as the monopoly and repugnant with ownership.
The opinion takes the view that deeds containing a monopoly burden may make those deeds unenforceable.
Greenbelts response is weak and full of the usual nonsence about land ownership. Land ownership is not the issue, but the monopoly burden in our deeds.
NON PAYMENT IS THE ANSWER.
I HAVE NEVER PAID AND NEVER WILL
This is why Greenbelt make the threats they do. They cant collect through the courts
FACT: The vast majority of residents were never told of Greenbelt Group and the financial commitment by either the Gladedale or Bellway sales office, in the missives (sales contract) or their solicitors.
FACT: Greenbelt Group are written into our deeds as a monopoly burden. This is illegal which will render our deeds invald and unenforceable. This can be found in the Title Conditions Scotland Act 2003 and has been confirmed in a statement from the Scottish Governments land and property legal team. Greenbelt have NOT responded to this when challenged on a number of occasions.
FACT: The Title Conditions Scotland Act 2003 gives residents the RIGHT to get rid of a manager. Greenbelt were sacked by submition of a 2/3rds majority petition. The petition was raised and submited in accordance with the Title Conditions Scotland Act 2003 and contained 251 signature out of a possible 300. Everyone who signed did so of there own free will. The Scottish Governments Land and Property legal team have issued a statement to confirm our rights under this act and have also stated that Greenbelts customer options are misleading and not compliant with the Title Conditions Scotland Act 2003. Greenbelt Group claim the law does not apply to them.
FACT: Our deeds contain the level and specification of maintenance that Greenbelt is required to carry out. Over the last two years we have commisioned two landscape audits which have proved that the maintenance we have received is way below the standard it should be. We have also aquired the original planting plan that was submitted as part of the planning application and confirm what we have actually got differs from the plan. Greenbelt claim that the level of maintenance has been consistanly of a good standard and the residents and developer are happy.
The evidence we have gathered is available to every resident for protection agaist non payment some of which will be posted on this site.Non payment is a powerfull weapon.
