Most real estate fraud – wire theft, title insurance fraud (failing to pay of liens), and seller fraud – requires the complicity of a settlement agent.
And while fraud can take place in any part of the loan process, you are most at risk at the closing. Even a seemingly minor mistake in disclosure forms may lead to a negligence claim against you.
