The mortgage broker is usually an agent for the purpose of arranging the home loan transaction.This relationship imposes a legal duty on the broker to disclose to you the material (important) facts you need to know about the loan. The broker has a duty of fairness and honesty to both you and the lender. These legal duties can be important in resolving disputes which arise after the loan is made, but the best way to avoid problems and disputes is to ask questions and be sure you understand the terms of the loan and each of the loan documents before you sign. When acting as an agent, the broker speaks for you in submitting your loan application to a lender. Make sure that you give the broker full and accurate information, and that any loan application or other document the broker prepares for your signature is accurate and complete before you sign it. Never sign a blank application or other documents. Make sure you understand the terms of the loan before you agree to it.
