Do all mortgage brokers charge fees?
No, not all brokers will charge a fee. The majority will receive a fee from the lender. The fee paid, known as the Procuration Fee, is generally a percentage of the amount you borrow – whilst this varies from lender to lender, a typical fee will be around 0.35% of the mortgage. For example – if you borrow £200,000 the fee paid to your broker will typically be £700.
To further clarify this point, you do not pay this fee, the lender pays this to your broker, or at least a large proportion of.
There may then be a further fee payable to your mortgage broker, and it’s important to understand that some will charge you a fee regardless of the amount you intend to borrow. This is precisely why you should do your homework before fully engaging with a mortgage broker. Here are a few examples of when a fee may apply:
Some brokers will charge you an upfront admin/application fee
Some will charge you a fee when you receive your mortgage offer / complete your transaction
And some may charge both!
