    Default Mortgage- can I lie about occupation??

    Is it illegal in any way to lie about what I do for a living to the mortgage people? I mean I was pre-approved and put sales, but I'm wondering if they will try and get more specific with me later in the process and if it is illegal to lie if they ask a direct question.. I don't want to say I'm a stripper, but also don't want to lie if this is against any laws.

    So it's fine to be vague? Because then I don't have to be lying.

    Pre approved should be pre approved. Be careful about making false statements to a federally insured financial institution.

    I think it is best to supply an answer that won't result in another question being asked. So vague and even misleading is fine, but too vague and it makes someone ask 'what does that mean?'
    You don't want them to think you are a criminal, lotsa cash and all.

    I think getting pre-approved without telling them what you do. Or, without giving them tax returns is a good start. I wonder if banks are going back to no doc loans??

    If the loan officers are greedy enough, then we will be back to a round of foreclosures.
