I believe that my landlord committed mortgage fraud in

Customer Question

Customer: I believe that my landlord committed mortgage fraud in buying the house that we're renting
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: He works for a real estate builder. His parents own a property management company, who is local to Lake Elsinore. When we signed the lease, his father coordinated the lease and signings. His father signed the lease on his son's behalf, in front of my wife and I, and even told us to not say anything, at that time this was in April 2015 the owner's name is ***** ***** dad's name is***** led us to believe that he was the property manager for our rental when reported repairs weren't being done at the house, Robert let us know that he wasn't the property manager we were instructed to keep all utilities in Nick's name, by both Nick and his father we thought this very odd I was talking to a realtor friend of mine who said that he probably did an "owner-occupied" loan on the house to get a lower interest rate keeping the utilities in his name would not raise any suspicions if he was investigated
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Real Estate Law Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
