Sartipy v Chatsworth Court Freehold Company Ltd & Anor [2017] EWHC 3062 (Ch) (20 October 2017) – a case which initially involved a claim for service charge arrears which resulted in the property being sold via a court order for sale.  This resulted in the defendant’s son being jailed for six years after submitting a number of false court orders to the Royal Courts of Justice in London and the Court Funds Office in Scotland.  The defendant and her son knew they had no legal standing with the property but tried to fraudulently withdraw the proceeds of sale and unlawfully regain entry into the property and evict the new owner.  This was the first conviction of its kind in the UK.
