What type of property fraud are we talking about?
Property fraud is where fraudsters try to “steal” a property, most commonly by stealing the homeowner’s identity and selling or mortgaging the property without their knowledge. They then disappear with the money leaving the true owner to deal with the consequences. Since 2009, Land Registry has stopped fraud on properties worth more than £92 million.
