New Jersey Real Estate Fraud Lawyers

New Jersey Real Estate Fraud Lawyers
Real estate fraud is an illegal act committed by a party concerning the purchase, rental, sales, or financing of real estate property. It is a crime under federal and state laws and can result in imprisonment.

Real estate fraud has become a rampant issue since the 2008 financial crisis. Public figures blame the downfall of the economy on dishonest mortgage conduction. Suspects of real estate fraud may find themselves in federal prison for years. It’s essential to look for help for freedom and rights protection. New Jersey real estate fraud lawyers can help you understand the charges you will face and explore various options to defend yourself.

Classification of Real estate fraud

Real estate professionals, individuals, banks, investors, and businesses can execute real estate fraud schemes. Below is a real estate fraud classification that can lead to criminal charges.

  • Title fraud
  • Broker fraud
  • Illegal property flipping
  • Foreclosure rescue scam
  • Escrow fraud
  • Investment fraud

At the state or the federal level, every real estate fraud scheme has multiple criminal charges. The charge will depend on what the prosecutor or the US attorney pursues. Spodek Law Group has experienced real estate fraud lawyers with vast knowledge in state and federal law to help you with any real estate scheme and develop a solution for you. Contact us immediately when under investigation to help you understand your rights during the process. We will also help ensure the investigators respect your freedom and protect you from the accusation.

Title fraud

Title fraud is where a body provides misleading information and misinterpretation of a property to have a clean and clear title to a potential buyer. Individuals can also identify themselves as the property owners and sell it to a buyer. The property owner will be required to defend himself in the property’s interest and evict the buyer to get back his title.

Broker fraud

A broker fraud entails collecting money sent by a prospective home buyer instead of putting it in an escrow account. Real estate brokers provide false information to prospective buyers to bring them to purchasing a home at a rate above the market value for their interest.

Illegal Property flipping

Illegal property flipping occurs when the selling of property is purchased and sold quickly above the appraisal value. Persons dealing with the property purchase do not disclose all the information concerning it to the buyers and lead to the hiding of defects. The buyer in question may also be charged by law with property flipping fraud.

Foreclosure rescue scam

There are different types of foreclosure fraud involved in this section. They include:

Fees for negotiating

A negotiation fee is when an investor convinces a homeowner that they can renegotiate a home loan for a fee. When the payment is collected, it is the negotiator that benefits and no negotiation occur in the home loan.

Title fraud and leasebacks

The type of fraud occurs when investors or companies convince a homeowner to enact a temporal title transfer when they are in foreclosure to save their house. The investors put up the property on sale and pay the lowest amount to homeowners. They then leave them on the mortgage hook.

Equity stripping

A homeowner gives up his homeownership but continues to pay rent and lives in the house. The Investor or the company that took over the ownership can either cash out house interests or receive rent from the homeowner. In the end, the mortgage payment is avoided, and the subsequent homeowner is evicted from the house. The home is sold or goes to foreclosure.

Escrow fraud

This is a situation where investors make counterfeit checks for property deposits. When a homeowner is applying for a home loan, a hud-1 settlement statement must provide information on how companies should make payment. It can either be paid through an existing loan or credit card. Escrow companies can modify this statement and fail to follow instructions. The company or the individual will end up taking the money while the borrower escrow account has nothing.

Investment fraud

When investors purchase investment properties under a pretense, it leads to real estate investment fraud. This type of scheme requires an investor to buy a large investment to purchase at high value or higher rates on capital contributed. In return, the cost increases and does not materialize.

Other real estate fraud classification includes

  • Land fraud
  • Predatory lending
  • Equity skimming
  • Penalties

The penalties of real estate fraud include

  • Criminal charges from the federal and state level
  • Fines of up to 1 million dollars
  • Decades of imprisonment of up to 30 years

An individual facing real estate fraud can also get his bank account frozen by the government and his belonging taken before a criminal conviction. Understanding your rights during the federal prosecution process is essential. There are available defenses for fraud charges to protect you. Call Spodek Law Group and get help from experienced real estate fraud lawyers.

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.
