Fraud for Property
Fraud for property usually involves charges accusing a borrower of making false statements when applying for a home loan. The accusation is that he or she purposely misrepresented income, amounts of debt or down payment amounts.
A borrower is often motivated to provide false information because he or she wants the property and intends to repay the loan. In some situations, lenders may even be involved in “coaching” the borrower to misrepresent themselves in order to qualify.
Mortgage fraud for profit is committed by industry professionals including brokers, lenders and investors. This type of fraud can include:
- Overstated income, assets, or collateral
- Overstated collateral
- Misrepresented or fictitious employment
- Undisclosed debt or credit history
- Situations involving straw buyers
- Inflated property value

Mortgage contracts can be confusing and this lack of understanding can cause someone to enter into an illegal transaction without knowing. Some people simply don’t know that there is anything wrong with what they did or agreed to. At The Law Office of Travis Williams, we will fight to protect your innocence.
