Types of Mortgage Fraud

Mortgage fraud can be apparent in a significant number of mortgage applications each year, and this can often be attributed to the various difficulties faced by many people when trying to get a foot on the property ladder.

Examples of mortgage fraud include:

  • Misrepresenting finances
  • Embellishment of employment status
  • Misrepresenting salary figures
  • Masking poor credit history
  • Hiding credit card debt or other debt
