What is Real Estate Fraud?

When purchasing a home, business or other type property, it’s understandable that most people must rely almost entirely on their agent or broker to lead them in the right direction. Unfortunately, that puts most people in a very vulnerable position. Real estate fraud occurs when a person knowingly misrepresents the facts in order to take advantage of another individual.

Real estate fraud can happen at any point during the transaction process. In order to prevent fraud or uncover fraud, it is strongly advised that you speak with an experienced and knowledgeable real estate fraud attorney at McFarlin, LLP. We can help you understand your legal rights and take the appropriate steps to fix the situation.

Common Types of Real Estate Fraud

In general, real estate matters can be highly complicated, making it even easier for creative and dishonest individuals to take advantage of others and cover their tracks. In fact, many victims do not even realize that they have been cheated out of thousands or even millions of dollars until years later.

Some of the more common types of real estate fraud include, but are by no means limited to, the following:

  • Title Transfer: Victims of foreclosure fraud may be misled into signing over the title to their home to a supposed foreclosure consultant who promises to rent the property back to owner.
  • Phantom Help Scam: A company promises to help a homeowner avoid foreclosure by negotiating with the bank, but doesn’t actually do anything.
  • Bait and Switch: The victim is misled into signing documents without knowing that he or she is actually signing over the transfer to his or her home.
  • Mortgage Fraud: A realtor or broker provides dishonest interest rates, unfair payment terms, or misleading contracts.
  • False Credentials: A person who claims to be a real estate agent or broker without credentials.
  • Fraudulent Listing Agreements: Failing to adhere to California’s numerous laws regarding how a property can be listed.
