    Mortgage fraud, what will they do? 11th Sep 17 at 1:25 PM
    I own the upstairs flat in an old house & I share the freehold with the downstairs flat. I found myself no longer able to pay the mortgage 3 years ago so I have moved out and rented my flat without informing my mortgage company. After the first year, I switched mortgage provider and now have a new residential mortgage with them. They believe I live at the address. I have been told that although this is mortgage fraud they are unlikely to come down on me very hard and could be sympathetic to my situation (I have alcohol issues and mental issues). Does any one know what they are likely to do if they find out what I am doing? The people downstairs believe that I have a Buy To Let Mortgage and so do the tenants.
    Any advice welcome
