Mortgage Fraud – Solicitors

One of our clients once just opened his own totally unregulated High Street bank in premises which one of the big five banks had recently vacated. All it cost him was a sign and 3 months rent up front. He proceeded to take thousands from unsuspecting depositors every day and took advance fees to arrange funding for large property and business ventures He even opened a foreign exchange department and of course offered mortgages at low interest rates!

Such ventures inevitably draw in other service providers, some dishonest some greedy, some naïve and some, honest but duped. Deciding an individual’s true category might end up being left for a jury to decide, which is not what any of them want, but especially the innocent!

Typically those sucked into mortgage fraud are not just the obvious victims i.e. the public whose dreams are wrecked and replaced with nightmares, but also professionals including solicitors accountants, surveyors, valuers, land developers, bankers and trustees. Some are honest others might not be but who wants to stand trial if placed into the wrong category by police or prosecutors?

Involving Ralli at an early stage in an investigation helps us to help you. We know how it works and can often explain why you should not be charged let alone convicted!

Our experience of these cases helps us to present your arguments in a convincing and if necessary technical way. We can call upon other specialist departments within Ralli Solicitors LLP in addition to some or the most experienced barristers in the field, should that be required.

We know the tell tale signs for example:- unorthodox schemes involving equity or pension fund release, bailout and foreclosure rescue schemes, back to back property purchases and sales with an intervening revaluation and /or the creation of mezzanine leases.

The list is almost endless but the allegations will usually imply that the vulnerable have been taken advantage of rather than greedy people have gambled knowing the risks but have lost and are looking for someone to blame!

I lost all faith in the British legal system and hold the Devon and Cornwall Constabulary in utter contempt. The case against me took more than four years from arrest to finally appearing in court. However, I was most fortuitous to meet Ralli Solicitors LLP, a firm of Solicitors a credit to the legal profession. The manner in which they set about defending me inspired confidence and helped me through my darkest hours. Ralli Solicitors LLP diligently examined the ‘evidence’ against me, painstakingly reading thousands of pages of emails, letters and documents with an unrelenting determination to prove my innocence. To simply say thank you does not adequately express the heartfelt debt of gratitude I hold. In addition to their professionalism the whole team were such nice people with compassion and an unbelievable dedication.

I was referred to ralli solicitors by a friend and Lynn Mahon was appointed as my legal representative. Since our first meeting all aspects of my case were explained and dealt with in a professional manner and any queries I had were explained and my mind was put at ease. I would certainly recommend Lynn Mahon to anyone needing legal advice.
