Defense You Can Trust
Mortgage fraud involves a variety of specific acts that attempt to deceive or defraud a homebuyer or homeowner. It occurs during the mortgage lending process, which is when a person obtains or seeks a residential mortgage loan. Essentially, this crime usually involves a material omission, misrepresentation, or misstatement that takes place during this process, in conjunction with an intent to defraud.
According to state law, an individual commits mortgage fraud if they:
- Had the intent to defraud
- Knowingly made a deception during the mortgage lending process
- Received compensation as a result of the deception
- Are involved in the filing of the mortgage document which contains the deception
