Interesting mortgage fraud SC case

Didn't find your answer?

It seems that there were no adverse consequences for the mortgage fraudster.

We need David Winch to comment on whether there is a risk of criminal sanctions where the so-called fraud is not intended to actually cause any loss to the mortgagee etc. and the mortgagor is just a nominee and no more (I have cited previous cases where judges see no obvious problem there and it did not seem to cause any actual problems for the mortgage fraudster in the above case where these were more or less the circumstances; far from it, as she won the case).

At para 78 of this case the judge also sees no major problem with a nominee (or undisclosed agent) acting on behalf of a property owner re their property obligations.
