Fraudulent Buyer ∙ Mortgage Fraud
There are countless forms of mortgage fraud, and they range from simply lying about income to major schemes involving multiple fraudulent transactions. The essential element that all mortgage fraud cases have in common is some kind of material misrepresentation made by the buyer to the seller. Some examples include:
- Using a false identity for a mortgage loan application
- Falsifying income and debt statements to qualify for a home loan
- Intentionally defaulting on a home loan in order to purchase the home at a short sale price and sell it at full value for a profit
- Refinancing a home or receiving government home improvement grants with no intention of doing any repairs
Whether you are facing mortgage fraud because you were looking to make a profit, have a place to live, or you were falsely accused, our attorneys can help you. Both of our lawyers are former prosecutors with a focus on criminal law.
