Do I Communicate with the Lender While Using a Mortgage Broker?

The mortgage broker acts as an intermediary between you and the lender. For example, a lender will go through the mortgage broker to offer loans to the borrower. Once a loan is picked, the mortgage broker helps complete the mortgage loan process. Mortgage brokers resolve issues during the mortgage process and assist borrowers until closing.

Tellus TIP:

You can still communicate with other direct lenders while you shop for mortgage loans even when you have already begun working with a mortgage broker. But if you pick a loan through a broker, then the broker will work with you and that lender to finish the process.
