Avoid becoming a mortgage fraud victim with these tips

How does somebody avoid becoming a victim of mortgage fraud?

Mortgage fraud involves tricking a financial institution into lending money when it otherwise wouldn’t. Sometimes, it involves individuals attempting to buy houses they can’t afford.

If a lender ever asks you to fill out a mortgage application form, it’s very important that you be completely honest. Knowingly inflating your income, misrepresenting the amount or the source of your down payment, purchasing a rental property and then claiming it as owner-occupied, failing to disclose existing debts or even misstating your job position on an application can all constitute mortgage fraud. You can be held both financially and criminally liable.

The actual minutes from board meetings must be provided to owners who complete the correct forms asking to see them.  (DREAMSTIME)

When a unit owner requests a copy of the minutes from a board meeting, can the board instead provide just a list of motions that were passed and approve the minutes of previous board meetings?

No. If the owner completes and submits the prescribed Request for Records form requesting specific board minutes, the owner is entitled to examine or receive a copy of the actual minutes. The board cannot merely provide the owner with a list of resolutions passed at the meeting.

The corporation must delete from the requested minutes any information relating to matters that the Condominium Act specifies are not included in an owner’s right to examine records. Those matters include information in the minutes that relate to employees of the corporation, information relating to actual or pending litigation or insurance investigations involving the corporation, and records relating to specific units or owners other than the requesting owner or that owner’s unit.
