Fraudulent Mortgages Insuring Agreement

The Fraudulent Mortgages Insuring Agreement (also known as Insuring Agreement G) covers losses resulting directly from the financial institution accepting or acting upon real property mortgages, deeds of trust, and like instruments pertaining to real property on which a signature is legitimate but defective because it was obtained through fraud, trick, or under false pretenses. (Note: Insuring Agreement E only provides coverage if the document is forged, altered, lost or stolen.)

Claims Example
  • A borrower obtains a loan secured by land jointly owned with his wife. After a year of making payments, the borrower falls behind and the bank files for foreclosure on the land. During the proceedings, it is proven that the wife did not “knowingly” sign the mortgage for the property and thought she was signing another unrelated document. The bank is precluded from foreclosing on the property.
