Mortgage fraud in more detail

According to figures published by credit agencies mortgage fraud could be apparent in more than 40 out of every 10,000 mortgage applications this year. This figure, which is significantly higher than usual, has been attributed to the difficulties faced by many people when trying to get onto the property ladder.

Examples of mortgage fraud include:

  • Misrepresenting finances
  • Embellishing their employment status/lying about their salary
  • Masking poor credit history
  • Hiding credit card debt or other debt

We have a national reputation in this area, having acted in various complex mortgage fraud and confiscation cases. Many of the cases we have handled involved multiple applications and properties.
