Real Estate Fraud Unit

The Yolo County District Attorney’s Office is dedicated to the investigation and prosecution of real estate related crimes. Attacking real estate crimes and other white collar criminal activity is one of the high priorities contained within the White Collar Crime Unit. Criminal real estate crimes may involve home equity fraud, mortgage fraud, grand theft, title fraud, securities fraud, forgery, foreclosure fraud, loan fraud, rental scams and any other fraud scam which steals a homeowner’s dreams with a single forged signature or a get-rich quick scheme. In each of the preceding crimes, the unsuspecting victim can lose his or her life savings and his or her home, unless he or she promptly alerts the authorities.

If you believe you have been a victim of any type of real estate fraud occurring in Yolo County, you are encouraged to fill out and email or mail a Complaint Form for our review. (The form is available below.)
