A woman from Huddersfield has appeared in court in connection with an alleged £1.5m fraud.
Rachel Gledhill appeared alongside a mother and son accused of defrauding more than £1.5m out of money lenders in a complex ten-year mortgage scam.
Now all are to stand trial at the Old Bailey.
Wendy Stubbs, 61, and her son Wayne, 44, inflated their incomes in mortgage applications for luxury properties in Kent and Notting Hill, west London, it is said.
They allegedly received £1,200,399 from Intelligent Finance, £300,000 from the Cheltenham and Gloucester, and £237,500 from Independent Finance through the scam.
The pair appeared at Southwark Crown Court to face a raft of money laundering and acquiring criminal property charges from the scam, which ran between 2002 and 2012.
They were joined in the dock by Rachel Gledhill, 39, who is charged with falsely inflating her income in a mortgage application for a property in Huddersfield.
Each defendant spoke only to confirm their identities and enter not guilty pleas to 16 charges they face between them.
They remained standing and showed little emotion as they learnt that they will face trial at the Old Bailey on September 16.
Releasing the trio on unconditional bail, Judge Anthony Pitts said: ‘The most important date you need to bear in mind is September 16 for the start of your trial at the Central Criminal Court.’
Gledhill is accused of dishonestly obtaining a £424,950 money transfer from the Halifax in February 2005 for a house in Keston, Kent and the subsequent illegal rental income.
She and Wayne Stubbs are jointly charged with dishonestly receiving a bank transfer of £225,000 for a terraced house in Huddersfield from Intelligent Finance in April 2003.
Wendy and Wayne Stubbs are also accused of laundering the proceeds of the fraud which is said to have been committed between April 2002 and December 2012 across a total of seven properties.
Wayne Stubbs is further charged with fraud by false representation during a mortgage application to Clydesdale Bank.
Wendy and Wayne Stubbs, both of Orpington Road, Chislehurst, Kent, deny four counts of obtaining a money transfer by deception for which they are jointly charged.
Wayne Stubbs further denies three counts of entering or becoming concerned with a money laundering arrangement, and a count each of obtaining a money transfer by deception, acquiring criminal property, and fraud by false representation.
Wendy Stubbs denies entering or becoming concerned with a money laundering arrangement and two counts of acquiring criminal property.
Gledhill of Armitage Road in Milnsbridge, Huddersfield, denies obtaining a money transfer by deception and acquiring criminal property.
She and Wayne Stubbs both deny a joint charge of obtaining a money transfer by deception.
Their trial, which is due to start on September 16, is expected to last up to four weeks.
