I have discovered my mortgage application form was changed

Customer Question

I have discovered my mortgage application form was changed after I signed it by the broker. He changed my job status and income to achieve a higher mortgage that I foolishly took and then could not repay, and the house was re possessed.
Is it fraud to change an application form after its been signed?

Hello, thank you for your question. My name is Tony and I am an English Solicitor.

Yes, it is fraud to change an application once it is signed and submitted by you. The broker was wrong to have done this. You could report this to the police and they could investigiate fully for you - it is a criminal offence.
