When you buy or build a home you have to file for a mortgage. These mortgage statements and contracts are very important as they represent the large amounts of money you will be borrowing from a bank or lending organization. If you purposefully put false information on any of these legally binding contracts you can be charged with mortgage fraud.
The cause of most mortgage fraud charges is an individual's inability to secure a loan without false information. Poor credit records, past personal records or lack of funds can hinder many from obtaining the loan they desire or any amount at all. Falsifying any information on your mortgage loan application can result in felony charges. You must contact a Tampa criminal defense attorney to receive high quality legal representation for your mortgage fraud charge.
