The head of fraud at the world’s fifth largest accountancy network says 80% of mortgage fraud could be eradicated by including a second property valuation.

Simon Bevan, BDO’s head of fraud and financial crime, explained the idea in an interview with Mortgage Strategy magazine.

He is quoted as saying: “Most of the fraud is around buy-to-let and that seems to be because there is a shortage of rental property and it’s the buy-to-let area that they are lending on.

“Some 80% of fraud is in the buy-to-let market and it’s the same fraud we see in commercial lending fraud. It involves a corrupt valuer and a corrupt solicitor and someone in the property market.”
