This type of fraud occurs when someone fraudulently obtains a mortgage. That process typically involved providing false information regarding the value of a property or overstating the income of an applicant(s).
In more sophisticated cases, defendants might manipulate Land Registry data or even make application in the names of victims of identity theft or the deceased. Mortgage fraud investigations have significantly increased in recent years, particularly in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crash. Those facing these types of investigations often face specialist prosecution authorities and police investigators.
It is therefore imperative that you seek the advice of a specialist defence solicitor as soon as possible.
