    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
