What is Predatory Lending?
Predatory lending is a term that is used to refer to unethical, unfair business practices by certain lenders. In a situation involving predatory lending, a lender may deceive a borrower into agreeing to unfair or abusive mortgage loan terms. A lender may also violate the terms of a mortgage agreement while making it difficult to catch, or for a borrower to take legal action against the lender for these violations. The end result of predatory lending is often that the borrower defaults on the loan, and the lender regains possession of the property through foreclosure.
