Real Estate Fraud Attorney

Real estate is one of the foundations of society. Most people will buy or sell at least one property during the course of their life. People will also rent a home to put a roof over their heads. Everyone needs to be aware that the concept of real property has a highly specific legal definition. Many laws apply to the buying and selling of all forms of real property. Each of these laws must be carefully observed. Buying any form of property typically means following a series of steps. The same is true of those who wish to provide property for commercial or private rent. Laws govern all sorts of processes. A person who is planning to buy a home or rent a property from a landlord will need to fill out a series of documents that have a legal basis. The same is true of applying for a mortgage or any form of financing for the home.

Real Estate Fraud

The concept of real estate fraud may apply if someone makes any kind of false statement when they are buying or selling a property. When people engage in this kind of transaction, they are doing so in good faith. Each party to the transaction must be able to trust that any statements the other party makes are accurate to the best of their knowledge. One party is not allowed to make false statements such as overstating the value of the property or lying about the fact that they are own when they do not have possession legally.

Real estate fraud as a crime may happen in several different ways. It may come into play when someone asks for appraisal of the home’s value. The appraiser may not give the buyer an accurate estimate of the actual value. For example, the home seller may have actively decided to hire someone to appraise the property and have them agree to increase the home’s value in return for a sum of money. Other actions can also be considered a form of real estate fraud. In general, real estate fraud falls into two categories.

There is what is known as borrower fraud in which the applicant states assets they do not have and therefore cannot afford the property. A buyer may have made false statements about their credit rating and other assets they own. Another general type of real estate fraud is what is known as lender or professional fraud. Lender fraud typically takes the form of engaging in activities that are not allowed under law such as using the borrower’s information for personal gain. Each type of fraud is considered quite dangerous under state and national laws. All those who are involved in the process of property buying and selling in some way must make sure they are acting in good faith. They need to make sure they have done their best to provide everyone involved in the transaction with accurate information about their financial circumstances and background.

Intent is Crucial

Government officials consider any type of real estate fraud a serious allegation. Those who are charged with this form of fraud may be facing all sorts of possibly serious penalties. A real estate agent who deliberately acts against the ethics of their profession in some way may face not only fines. They may also face potential prosecution and the loss of their real estate license. The same is true of professionals in the mortgage lending business or those who are licensed by the state in order to provide appraisal services.

Those who are engaged in real estate fraud by providing inaccurate information about their backgrounds may also face similar penalties. This can make it hard for them to ever buy a home again. This is why it is imperative to work closely with a real estate fraud attorney. Keep in mind that intent in crucial. Government officials must be able to prove there was deliberate intent to engage in some form of fraud. Minor mistakes will not fall in this category and will not lead to any kind of penalty. A real estate lawyer can help offer truly expert advice to make sure clients are fully protected.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
