Jph, Home Buyer in 11385

Do you owe a brokerage for a preapproval even if you don't follow through and use it to purchase?

Asked by Jph, 11385 Tue Aug 11, 2009

I am awaiting a preapproval letter from a brokerage for an FHA mortgage. Since seeking the preapproval I have decided to see what another boker has to offer. If I go with a loan from the second broker, would I owe anything to the first brokerage?

Hi Jph. No, you won't owe a dime. Although you don't make mention as to how long it has been, go right ahead and check with another Mortgage broker. They do offer rather similar services and it is FHA but feeling comfortable with someone who will be an integral part of your purchase is priceless.

Best to you on your purchase.

No, only an unsrupolous mortgage agent would charge you for a pre-approval letter. Also you are not obliged to get the mortgage from the company that first gave you the pre-approval. You can shop arounbd evev after your offer is accepted based on the pre-approval letter
