Miami Mortgage Fraud Attorney
Mortgage Fraud involves material misrepresentation or omission of information with the intent to deceive or mislead a lender into extending credit that would likely not be offered if the true facts were known. Those charged could include the borrower, lender, real estate professional, property Management Company, contractor, appraiser, loan officer, processor, underwriter, and closing attorney.
There is no specific federal statute titled “mortgage fraud”. Rather, those charged with this crime, will generally be charged with wire fraud which is knowingly and with intent to defraud, devise, intend to devise, and attempt to devise a scheme and artifice to defraud and to obtain money and property by means of materially false and fraudulent pretenses, representations, and promises, knowing that the pretenses, representations, and promises were false and fraudulent when made.
In 2011, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, Wilfredo Ferrer said, “we keep leading the nation in mortgage fraud, and that is something we are working to stem.” The U.S. Attorney’s Office and judges are taking a tough stance on those committing mortgage frauds. Whether you are an attorney, lender, or borrower, you need experienced and competent representation.
