DC Partners (Solutions) Pty Ltd working with a financier client recently uncovered evidence that the agent forged his wife’s signature to gain a financial advantage borrowing against his family home.
The agent was a well known agent from the Liverpool area of NSW.
The agent has since become personally bankrupt and the agency wound-up in insolvency.
The crimes were discovered in late 2019.
DC Partners (Solutions) Pty Ltd says the finding highlight the stress and financial pressure that estate agents can find themselves in and the lengths when persons are not thinking clearly that they might go to.
