Mortgage fraud covers a range of offences where a mortgage lender has been deceived. You may not always be aware that a fraud has been committed – for example, if a friend or relative has completed documentation on your behalf without your knowledge. Mortgage fraud covers a wide range of issues where false information has been provided to the mortgage lender. This could include providing incorrect details about your income, misleading the lender about your existing debts, or covering up the true value of a property. The action that a mortgage lender will take depends on a number of factors from the severity of the deception to whether you are able to keep up your mortgage repayments.
