Florida Mortgage Fraud Laws
Charges of mortgage fraud are a serious matter that could result in enormous fines and years of imprisonment. Florida laws outline elements of mortgage fraud in the Florida Statutes and defines it as a crime that occurs during the mortgage lending process. This process includes many stages such as applications for loans, deeds, mortgages, appraisals, and inspections.
The Florida Statutes determine whether or not a person is guilty of mortgage fraud by the following:
- If the person intended to defraud
- If the person intentionally provided false or misleading information during the mortgage process
- If the person intentionally used any of the above information during the mortgage process
- If the person gained compensation due to their false or misleading information
- If the person filed a mortgage document containing false and misleading information
