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!

We may need to charge a fee if:

  • You are looking to borrow less than £225,000

  • Your situation/requirements are complex, therefore demanding more time for us to thoroughly research, place and arrange your mortgage
     

Our fee will never be more than 1.5% of your mortgage and is only paid when your mortgage completes. When our fee is based solely on the size of your mortgage, as a guide:

  • 50-100k – no more than £750

  • 100-150k – no more than £450

  • 150-225k – no more than £350

 

Are you looking to borrow more than £225,000? If so, our aim will always be to operate without adding to your costs.
