Fraud pros­e­cu­tion boom ahead

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

A YORK­SHIRE lawyer says that sys­tem­atic, large-scale fraud car­ried out dur­ing the prop­erty boom is set to come to light next year.

Aziz Rah­man be­lieves that the next 12 months will see many more peo­ple charged and ap­pear­ing in court in con­nec­tion with multi-mil­lion pound cases of prop­erty-re­lated fraud in­volv­ing de­vel­op­ers, es­tate agents and pri­vate in­di­vid­u­als.

West York­shire-based Mr Rah­man rep­re­sented prop­erty de­vel­oper Simon Mor­ris, who was in­ves­ti­gated for three years by the Se­ri­ous Fraud Of­fice with­out any charges be­ing brought.

He is in­volved in a num­ber of prop­erty and mort­gage fraud cases, with each one in­volv­ing mil­lions of pounds.
