Property fraud is on the increase and has been highlighted by the recent ITV drama, Our House. It may seem unbelievable that someone could ‘steal a house’, but fraudsters can be very sophisticated.
Although fraudsters can target any property, those most at risk are those that are empty and/or that do not have any mortgage registered against them.
You can protect yourself, and your home, by understanding the properties that are most at risk, and by taking a few simple steps:
If you think you might have been the victim of property fraud, contact the police and your solicitor immediately. You can also seek advice from the Land Registry (email@example.com); or Action Fraud.
