Washington DC Real Estate Fraud Attorney

When most of us think about abuses in the real estate market we automatically think about big banks and their use of predatory lending practices, illegal foreclosures and other widely publicized abuses of the real estate market.  Because the health of the US economy is so closely tied to real estate, the federal government decided to take a long hard look at the causes for the current crisis. During this investigation the government has not limited its focus to big banks.

The federal government also looked closely at businesses and individuals and has stepped up prosecution of real estate fraud cases in Washington DC and across the country.  At KaiserDillon PLLC we are dedicated to defending the rights of our clients facing real estate fraud charges – or involved in real estate fraud investigations – in Washington DC and continue to stay on top of this ever-changing area of law.

At KaiserDillon PLLC we have experience defending Washington DC real estate fraud cases. Real estate fraud investigations and prosecutions can be brought against:

* Home Owners: Individuals are being prosecuted for being dishonest on their applications for home loans. You may face a criminal investigation and charges of real estate fraud if you provided false statements or documentation about your income, your assets or your intended use of the property in question.

* Mortgage Brokers: Mortgage brokers are being investigated for their part in the current real estate crisis and prosecutors are taking a closer look at the documents prepared and submitted by mortgage brokers across the country. Broker dishonesty is a prosecutable offense and accounts for an increasing number of real estate fraud cases in Washington DC.

* Real Estate Investors:  Individual investors and groups of real estate investors are under increased scrutiny as prosecutors consider pursuing cases against them for real estate fraud in Washington DC.

Do not make the mistake of assuming that if you are charged with and convicted of real estate fraud in Washington DC that losing your home is the worst consequence you will face. The reality is, these are criminal, not civil investigations and you could face fines and jail time if you are convicted.

At KaiserDillon PLLC we often see charges of real estate fraud coupled with other criminal charges, like conspiracy to commit a crime, wire fraud and money laundering. If you are facing charges related to multiple crimes, you need the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney who can explain what the different charges mean, how they relate to each other and what the consequences of one or more convictions can be.

The differences in every case require personalized representation to ensure that your rights are defended and that the impact of your Washington DC real estate fraud case is minimized. At KaiserDillon PLLC we will provide the representation you need and offer no obligation consultations to anyone facing a Washington DC real estate fraud charge.
