Real estate fraud has gained ground over the last decade. There’ve been many industry professionals engaging in a variety of acts that enrich their bank accounts while defrauding others. This includes divesting a person from a title and vesting that title into someone else’s name, who will be doing this with the full intent of defrauding the lender and preventing them from a foreclosure on the property that may be very delinquent on their mortgage payments. It may also be a breach of contract in something in which an arms-length condition of a sale of the property was in violation. When this happens, lenders agree to short-term payoffs and all parties are colluded and have side agreements that aren’t allowed in such short-term payoffs. Clearly, there is much going on in the real estate and the mortgage business that calls for lawyers with real estate experience in the Los Angeles area to be in demand.
