Halacha - real estate
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

If you are trying to present yourself dishonestly as someone who has large sums of liquid assets to fraudulently receive a loan, this would be forbidden as geneivas daas. Even if you have the required income to make the monthly mortgage payments now and you feel the bank's demands to be unreasonable, the bank still has a legitimate demand to insure that you have assets from which you could continue making payments if you were to lose your job.

Even if somehow this action could be permitted according to the letter of halacha, but it is generally inappropriate to accustom oneself to behaving in a deceitful manner except under specific, extreme circumstances.
