Mortgage Fraud


Duncan Lewis Fraud Solicitors – Mortgage Fraud


Mortgage fraud can involve professionals involved in the mortgage market such as estate agents, solicitors, surveyors, bank staff, or homeowners and commercial property buyers who obtain a mortgage as a result of providing false or incorrect information on a home loan application, including using a fake or stolen identity.


Mortgage fraud is a serious crime and will be investigated by the police and other agencies, for example the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) investigates cases of mortgage fraud where a law firm is involved in a suspected fraud.


Duncan Lewis’ fraud solicitors can advise homeowners, commercial property owners and property professionals facing an allegation of mortgage fraud even before a charge is brought, including if there is a possibility a mortgage fraud investigation might be launched.


Duncan Lewis has successful property and crime departments and can advise on mortgage fraud cases involving false property valuations or inaccurate surveys for the purpose of obtaining a mortgage, as well as mortgage fraud involving identity theft or other criminal activities.


We can also advise on high value fraud cases, and can also liaise with agencies involved in investigating fraud cases, including:


  • City of London Police
  • Department for Work and Pensions (DWP)
  • Department of Trade and Industry (DTI)
  • Federation Against Copyright Theft
  • Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)
  • HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC)
