what is mortgage fraud?

Whether it is through the omission or misrepresentation of information during a loan application, or securing a loan larger than is required, all types of mortgage fraud involve deception during a property transaction.

Investigations do not just involve the accused borrower, but can also include estate agents, surveyors, mortgage brokers, property developers, accountants, financial advisors and solicitors, who are questioned on the due diligence they could have taken to prevent this crime from happening.

  • Respond to requests and inquiries on your behalf
  • Liase and negotiate with investigators
