Mortgaging a property for a loan or critical financial situation is a common activity in any country. With loans not being paid on time or a misrepresentation of a property or asset on a loan application, this can result in being charged with mortgage fraud.
In Florida, mortgage fraud is a hot topic with federal and state agencies who are clamping down on individuals and corporations who have allegedly committed mortgage fraud. The fraud may include a false credit history, inflated value of the property being mortgaged, the number of loans on the same property, overstated collateral or fictitious employment and the list goes on.
With strict criminal and civil laws in Florida a conviction for mortgage fraud can affect every aspect of your life, including your freedom, keeping or finding a job, keeping a professional license and can turn your personal life upside down.
There are situations when you unintentionally submit false information and unbeknown to you, it results in serious criminal consequences. Before you speak to law enforcement, make sure you speak with a lawyer and have legal representation. You can make a big mistake talking to law enforcement without legal representation.
