Government Licensed Mortgage Brokers and Agents

Trade & Profit from Private Lending; Sleep Well at Night™

  • Do you want your clients to participate in the lucrative world of certified quality managed private lending to earn the returns as described at our MQCC Investor-Lender page?

  • Do you want to earn money in private lending without compromising, invalidating or otherwise affecting your errors & omissions insurance?

Understand that not every mortgage brokerage is permitted to trade in private lending. Who decides? Your EO Insurance coverage; your regulator required Customer Relationship decision (agent for borrower, intermediary or agent for lender).

Alberta:

Pursuant to RECA standards of conduct (https://www.reca.ca/consumers/standards/rules/part2-div1.htm)

Industry Member Prohibitions

42

Industry members must not:

(section 42), (c) use confidential information obtained from any person for personal gain nor should that information be used for any purpose other than that for which it was obtained;

Section 42,combined with Section 43 (Written Service Agreements), 44 (Protection of Client Information) places the same burden of confidentiality on your client (the private investor-lender)

Agent for Lender Requirements

https://www.reca.ca/industry/relationships/representing-lender.htm

Mortgage brokerages are cautioned that their industry members must only undertake activities that match the type of relationship the brokerage has chosen to have with lenders and/or borrowers (e.g. AGENT FOR BORROWER). For example, if a mortgage brokerage business model is to act as an intermediary, an advertisement that indicates “we ensure borrowers get the best mortgage rate” may be false and/or misleading, as it could lead a borrower to believe that the mortgage brokerage is working on his or her behalf. Appropriate wording could be “we work with borrowers to provide appropriate options for their consideration.”


MortgageQuote Canada Corp. (MQCC) - your only safe way to trade and profit from certified statutory, regulatory and process (SRP™) conformity private lending in Canada.

If your brokerage choses to act for borrowers, or as an intermediary. It (or it's licensed agents) can NOT act for a private lender (as defined by RECA). So, it may be best to direct your private lending activity (or refer your interested investor-lenders) to a trusted quality brokerage firm that has chosen to act for private lenders from the outset, ie; MortgageQuote Canada Corp. For the record, MQCC is Canada's ONLY mortgage brokerage firm that is certified to be fully compliant with regulatory private lender interaction requirements, in Canada. First in Canada: Certified Quality Management System & Certified Regulatory Compliance

You still get control of your investor-lender referral and you still participate in the lucrative private lending area, it's just that you do it within the context of compliance.

This is the best way to prevent downstream issues from arising.

Background

Why MQCC™ SAFER™ Private Finance is Important for Government and Non-Government Regulated and Licensed Credit Intermediaries (Loan and Mortgage Brokers)?

One reason is that MQCC is important because it recognizes the true risk that face government licensed and regulated credit intermediaries when they trade in Peer-to-Peer (P2P)/Private/Crypto/Secret/Shadow goods (products) or services (methods); as follows:

1 - One or All of the following parties:

  • your customer

  • your regulatory body

  • your licensing body

  • your professional liability and errors and omissions insurer, risk underwriter, insurance agent or broker

  • your Designated Broker

  • your Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of your brokerage

  • your brokerages' Top Management (as defined in the applicable Canadian Federal and International Standard)

  • your brokerage's shareholders, investors, lenders and corporate risk insurers/Directors and Officer's Liability Insurer and risk underwriters

  • prospective customers

require that you or your:

  • Brokerage

  • Fellow Brokers (Agents and Sub-Brokers)

  • Unlicensed assistants

trade in credit transactions:

  • to a standard that conform to expectations and requirements by regulators, consumers, investors, lenders, fellow employees, shareholders of your brokerage, Top Management of your brokerage and your professional liability and errors and omissions insurers/brokers/agents; namely, that you:

Operate or Function or Act in a manner that is beyond reproach (or, at the minimum, accountable); specifically, that is:

  • at a minimum; competent in nature (ie; you have necessary and sufficient training; you are tested for efficacy and possess minimum competency standards to trade with the public.)

Example of Competency Standards include: MQCC™ Competency - Private Finance 001/2006-2021-CPFS

Visit PEM® Institute (PEMI®) at www.PEMInstitute.org to learn more.

  • at a minimum; proficient in nature (ie; you have necessary and sufficient training; you are tested for efficacy and possess minimum proficiency standards to trade with the public and lead others in the role of an authority on the subject.)

Example of Proficiency Standards include: MQCC™ Proficiency - Private Finance 001/2006-2021-PPFS

Visit PEM® Institute (PEMI®) at www.PEMInstitute.org to learn more.

so that all:

  • statutory requirements

  • regulatory requirements

  • industry requirements

  • procedural requirements

are satisfied, for each and every transaction in which you are involved; with records and evidence of conformity to be held and made available for regulatory audit or other discovery, for a period of up to seven (7) years; subject to your jurisdiction of regulation, licensure or operation.

2 - All of the following leadership roles:

  • regulatory bodies and regulators (Chief Executive Officers CEO; Executive Directors; Investigators; Lawyers; Market Conduct Officials)

  • Professional liability and errors and omissions insurer, risk underwriter, insurance agent or brokers

  • Lawyers with an expertise in professional negligence

  • Trained, Tested and Accredited Academics

Will acknowledge that the nature, quality, feature, characteristic, extent and function of financial (finance industry sector) trade classified as:

Peer-to-Peer (P2P)/Private/Crypto/Secret/Shadow

for example:

  • Peer-to-Peer (P2P)/Private/Crypto/Secret/Shadow loans

  • Peer-to-Peer (P2P)/Private/Crypto/Secret/Shadow mortgages

  • Peer-to-Peer (P2P)/Private/Crypto/Secret/Shadow financial sector services (methods)

  • Peer-to-Peer (P2P)/Private/Crypto/Secret/Shadow other financial sector services (methods) or goods (products) - fungible and non-fungible

is scientifically (precisely, exactly, empirically, materially, measurably) dissimilar to trade in traditional and general financial intermediation, namely,

Non-Peer-to-Peer (P2P)/Private/Crypto/Secret/Shadow

for example:

  • Non Peer-to-Peer (P2P)/Private/Crypto/Secret/Shadow loans

  • Non Peer-to-Peer (P2P)/Private/Crypto/Secret/Shadow mortgages

  • Non Peer-to-Peer (P2P)/Private/Crypto/Secret/Shadow financial sector services (methods)

  • Non Peer-to-Peer (P2P)/Private/Crypto/Secret/Shadow other financial sector services (methods) or goods (products)

  • Financial goods (products) and services (methods) provided by

(a) Central Banks (CB)

(b) Federally Regulated Financial Institutions (FRFI)

(c) other-jurisdiction-Regulated financial institutions, including those regulated by members of:

  • FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority; USA)

  • CSA (Canadian Securities Association; Canada)

  • FCA (Financial Conduct Authority; United Kingdom UK)

  • And other International equivalent bodies

scientifically (precisely, exactly, empirically, materially, measurably) dissimilar because the Kind of Activity Units KAU which produce the output of Peer-to-Peer (P2P)/Private/Crypto/Secret/Shadow goods and services are inherently not the same as the KAU which produces the output of non- goods and services, specifically, the principal productive activity accounts for most of the value added is not the same; (KAU is a definition of the OECD, United Nations and member states; see OECD/UN/WIPO/WTO Textbook written by Anoop Bungay available at Amazon® and Google Play®; entitled:

  • How the April 9, 2005 - World's First - Commercial Application of "Principles of 'BlockChain'" Was Influenced by Secretaries- & Directors-General of UNGA, OECD, WIPO & WTO Organizations from 2001-2005How the April 9, 2005 -World's First- Commercial Application of "Principles of 'BlockChain'" Were Influenced by Secretaries- & Directors-General of UNGA, OECD, WIPO & WTO Organizations from 2001-2005); for organizational references).

3 - In additional to Industry Sector-based differences, the Occupational differences are also dissimilar because the "tasks" which comprise the "the principal productive activity accounts for most of the value added" are separate and distinct; borne of dissimilar:

  • Blooms Framework

  • DACUM Framework

  • Standard Occupational Classification Framework

and dissimilar:

  • work performance (for both regulated and non-regulated activities and extents)

  • job duties

  • skills

  • education

  • training

  • testing

  • accreditation of educational organizations

  • career frameworks

  • standards and applications of systems, technologies and tools

  • degrees or other credentials generally required

and dissimilar:

  • competency standards

  • proficiency standards

and dissimilar:

  • organization direction and planning

  • organization management

  • organization and employee supervision

and dissimilar:

  • compensation to practitioners

  • costs and fees to applicants/borrowers

  • investment returns and yields to investors and lenders

and dissimilar:

  • professional liability; errors and omissions risk liability insurer/broker/agent underwriting standards

  • rates of risk; for example, all regulators and professional liability insurers will confirm that Peer-to-Peer (P2P)/Private/Crypto/Secret/Shadow finance sector transactions inherently have a higher probability of high-risk events including:

* Loss of Investor-Lender funds $$;

* Predatory behaviour of untrained Investors, Lenders, Brokers;

* Improper understanding of critical and complex residential and commercial private lending transactions;

* Insufficient or improper training, education, testing, accreditation, skills assessment of practitioners;

* Insufficient or improper standards, systems, technology and tools at both a corporation, organization and individual level (COIN™);

* Insufficient experience; 3 years for vocational standard; 4 years for bachelor degree level; 6 years for Masters (bachelor degree included); 8 years for Ph. D. level (bachelor, masters included); 12 - 15 years for expert standard; leadership level experience.

* This is not a complete list;

resulting in the causing of harm to consumers (applicants, borrowers, investors, lenders) by persons or organizations that do not possess necessary and sufficient skills, education, training, experience, organizational systems and organizational controls to effect competent or proficient delivery of goods and services of a Peer-to-Peer (P2P)/Private/Crypto/Secret/Shadow quality or nature resulting in:

* Financial $$$ penalties paid by brokers, brokerages, agents and sub-brokers due to nonconformity events including system errors, omissions and human errors and omissions;

* Regulatory complaints against brokers, agents or sub-brokers and unlicensed assistants;

* Company (brokerage) complaints;

* Statements of Claim (legal disputes);

* This is not a complete list.


Another reason is that MQCC is important is because it revolutionized the standards, systems, technologies and tools related to the origination and completion of 'private lending' or Peer-to-Peer (P2P)/Private/Crypto/Secret/Shadow finance sector transactions because:


MQCC is the Global Network Administrator GNA™ for PRIVATLENDER.ORG: Canada's Private Lending Network®; The World's Private Finance Network™

Requirement to be Licensed

In Alberta, BC and Ontario, only Licensed Mortgage agents/brokers/sub-brokers within the jurisdiction of the property may interview mortgage applicants, obtain mortgage application information and prepare a mortgage application then submit same to a lender. There is no such thing as an unlicensed co-broker. (This is NOT legal or regulatory advice).

Designated Co-Brokered Transactions

All private mortgage transactions are designated as "co-brokered" transactions. MortgageQuote acts for the investor-lender and the originating mortgage brokerage acts for the mortgage applicant, so your jurisdiction's co-broker regulations will apply.

Co-Broker, Lead Generation Rules & When a License is Required

(licensed users only please)



In Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario, (where MortgageQuote.ca is licensed), the mortgage origination business is overseen by regulatory bodies. An individual AND his or her parent company must BOTH be licensed, registered and be "in good standing" to trade or deal in mortgage transactions in one of those jurisdictions. The July 1, 2011 changes to the Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT), allow for individuals already licensed in one province, to have their occupational educational qualifications recognized by another province. Notwithstanding, in order to practice in another province, an individual is required to REGISTER with the regulatory body of the other province - so long as they are in an occupation that requires registration. "Mortgage Brokering" is an occupation that requires registration.


The recent laws have only made it easier to transfer educational requirements from one provincial jurisdiction to another, however for mortgage industry members, the requirement to register in order to trade in another province, remains. Failure to license/register and to transact in mortgages is unlawful, will void Errors and Omissions claims and will expose you and your mortgage brokerage to lawsuits for fraudulent origination or worse; by both the borrower, the lender, the regulatory authority or all.


Jurisdictional License Reciprocity

The below links from the various regulators should help clarify any confusion for you.

License/Registration Test

The questions we ask to determine your license and registration requirements for any transaction, is the following:


1.1 - 'where is the location (jurisdiction) of the primary property being mortgaged?'

1.2 - 'Is the Application Referral Source, namely you, registered with the governing mortgage broker regulatory body of that jurisdiction?'


In order to ensure compliance to this requirement, it is important to ensure that you are licensed, registered and in good standing with one of the registrars. See the License Registry section below, to confirm you and your company are duly licensed, registered and in good standing.


License Registry

For Alberta mortgage transactions, your name and company information should appear in this registry: click here for RECA registry.


For British Columbia mortgage transactions, your name and company information should appear in this registry: click here for FICOM registry.


For Ontario mortgage transactions, your name and company information should appear in this registry: click here for FSCO registry and Search for FSCO Declaration of Compliance requirement.



If your name appears in either registry, this means we are able to receive mortgage applications from you.


If your name does not appear in either registry and you have taken educational courses to become a mortgage Associate or Sub-Broker and you are in the business of mortgage brokering, please ask your company compliance officer for assistance.


If your name does not appear in the either registry and you have NOT taken educational courses to become a mortgage Associate or Sub-Broker see Options for Unlicensed Individuals, below.


If your name or company name does NOT appear in the registry, and you are a licensed mortgage in another province, then you may qualify for extra-provincial registration. See Jurisdictional License Reciprocity links section, to learn more.


Options for Unlicensed Individuals

If you are not able to provide confirmation of license and registration, you have the following options:


4.1 - refer your client to a colleague who is duly registered in the jurisdiction of question, in order that they may send the file to our office for action.


4.2 - register yourself and, if necessary, your brokerage firm, with the regulatory body in the jurisdiction of question.


4.3 - you may still refer your file to MortgageQuote.ca Private Lending Services, and you would be treated as an unlicensed and unregistered 'simple referral source'. You would not be able to communicate mortgage options or negotiate terms with the applicant because you are not licensed to trade in mortgages within the jurisdiction. MortgageQuote.ca will need to undertake the communication, negotiation and fulfillment of the transction, directly with the borrower. This means you would be paid a referral fee of upto 20% of the paid origination fee to MortgageQuote.ca. The actual amount will be determined upon review of the work required for the file. Visit referrals.mortgagequote.ca to learn more.


4.4 - you would like to be in the mortgage business, the visit www.mortgagejobs.org to learn more.



Is this a new thing?

If you are a mortgage broker and this situation affects you; you may not have encountered this issue until today. If you have historically been dealing in mortgages in other provinces and no other lender has brought this to your attention, we cannot fully explain that. What we can say, however is the following:

  • Some lenders are so "hungry for deals" that they don't care about the origination process. Afterall, most lenders are ultimately regulated by federal laws, not necessarily provincial laws.

  • Caution: Most transactions go through "without a hitch" however an incorrectly originated transaction has the potential to nullify a lender's security. A borrower only needs an experienced lawyer to see the mistakes; then the lawyer can file an application with the courts for relief.

  • If a lender ends up losing money due to a poorly originated transaction (or worse, a smart lawyer), you can be sure that they will look to the mortgage professional who originated the mortgage, along with his or her broker and brokerage for compensation (or as a third-party to law suit). Then, an Errors and Omission (EOE) claim starts.

  • Problem: The problem with EOE insurers, is that they usually cover claims for transactions for the provinces in which a broker is licensed. Once an EOE insurer determines that a person was not duly licensed to practice in a province for which a claim is being filed, most likely they will refuse to assist.

The best thing is to ask your Designated Broker or Designated Individual for guidance, or read the rules of the Regulator's website in the province which you are not licensed in - but should be.



Ask your Errors & Omissions Insurer

One final note: Errors & Omissions insurers policies usually cover mortgage brokers for the provinces in which they and their licensed employees are duly registered. You should ask your EOE provider for guidance.

REFERRALS – INDUSTRY MEMBER REQUIREMENTS


Purpose: This bulletin outlines the obligations of an industry professional when they make a referral.


This bulletin applies to all industry professionals.


A “referral” means “the act of recommending or directing a person for service, assistance, or business to another person or business.” A referral in exchange for a fee or other compensation is a common practice in the real estate and mortgage brokerage industries.


Real estate, property managers and mortgage professionals must disclose that they may receive a fee or compensation to the person they are referring.

Industry professionals can only disclose client confidential information with the consent of that person.


Consent of client to disclose confidential information The person you are referring must consent to the sharing of their information for the referral. You can only share the information with the person the client agrees to share the information.


Confidential information means “any information concerning the client including the client’s financial or personal situation, the client’s real estate and the transaction involving the client.” Many referrals will involve disclosing only basic information, like name, email address and phone number. Other referrals may require more

information about a person, such as the person’s real estate, property management, mortgage or appraisal requirements, or their financial situation.


In all cases, industry professionals must receive written consent from the person whose information they will be giving to a third party before releasing that information.


Referral disclosure requirements


If an industry professional may receive a referral fee or other compensation, they must first disclose to the person subject of the referral the following:


that the industry professional will be giving the person’s confidential information to a third party service provider


what information the third party will receive such as name, phone number or email, or other confidential information


that the industry professional may receive a referral fee or other benefit from the service provider for making the referral


This disclosure must be in writing and include an acknowledgement by the client that they consent to this referral. If they do not agree, do not make the referral.

The written disclosure and acknowledgment must be part of the brokerage file. Industry professionals should know to whom they are making the

referral. If referring a client to another industry professional it is the referring industry professionals’ responsibility to take reasonable steps to ensure the person has a licence to carry out the service for the referral client.


The easy way to determine if an industry professional holds a licence with RECA is to visit RECA’s website at www.reca.ca and use “Search for

an Industry Professional”.


If referring a client to an industry professional outside of Alberta, there are several ways to determine whether that third party holds a licence in their

jurisdiction.


The Association of Real Estate Licence Law Officials (ARELLO) is an international organization that provides a “Real Estate Licence Verification” search tool on their website www.ARELLO.com. Most Canadian provinces and US states are members of ARELLO and supply ARELLO with current information.


If you cannot verify the licence status of an industry professional on www.ARELLO.com, search the website of the licensing authority in the province or state of the third party. If the website does not give an online licence search function, contact the licensing authority directly.


Do not make the referral unless you can confirm that the third party holds a licence for what you are referring your client.


You may only pay and receive referral fees through your brokerage


Referrals of clients you make are on behalf of the brokerage with which

you hold a licence. The brokerage must receive all referral fees or benefits from any referrals.


BC Co-Broker Requirements

Mortgage brokers enter into co‐brokering arrangements with other mortgage brokers when they share the responsibility to originate mortgages with other mortgage brokers. Co‐brokering differs from making mortgage referrals, as referral sources pass on potential client information to other registered brokers without participating in the origination process.


Activities which are included in the origination process include:


Meeting with borrowers;

Taking mortgage applications;

Conducting due diligence to confirm the identity of potential borrowers and to verify the application information provided to lenders;

Obtaining required consents from clients to perform credit bureau searches;

Shopping mortgage applications to lenders;

Providing mortgage commitments to borrowers and ensuring that conditions are satisfied;

Ordering appraisals; and

Preparing disclosure documents and ensuring that they are reviewed and executed by required parties.


Mortgage brokers and submortgage brokers must ensure that they do not co‐broker a mortgage transaction with a person in Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario who is not registered under the Act, or with a person in another jurisdiction, who is not licensed or registered as a mortgage broker in that other jurisdiction.


Both brokers in a co‐brokering arrangement are equally liable for the mortgage transaction, and will share regulatory responsibility for compliance issues. However, if an individual in a co‐brokering arrangement is not registered, and there are regulatory compliance issues with the transaction, it is likely that the registered broker will be the focus of disciplinary proceedings.


In addition, brokers should be aware that compliance problems are more likely to occur in co‐brokered transactions with unregistered individuals. In some cases, brokers who co‐broker mortgages with unregistered individuals may be participating in fraudulent transactions.


For example, FICOM (BC Regulator) has recently received reports from industry members that an unregistered individual is presenting fully completed mortgage application forms to registered mortgage brokers and asking that they present the applications to their lenders. When mortgage brokers ask to meet with the borrowers, the unregistered individual will leave, and seek out another mortgage broker to process the application. While the true nature of the transaction is not known, there is a strong possibility that the transaction is fraudulent, and may even involve identity theft or straw buyers.


Records

A broker must ensure proper management and control of all documents and records, including those related to mortgage deals, as well as licensing, registrations, and related regulatory requirements. RECA has guidelines as to what records a broker must keep. This applies to co-broker transactions, too. Source.


Mortgage brokers may verify the registration status of another mortgage broker or submortgage broker by checking licensing.mortgagequote.ca


Ontario Co-Broker Requirements


Disclosures FAQ


17. If I co-broker a mortgage with another Mortgage Broker, who has the responsibility of providing disclosure and forms to the client?

If a mortgage is co-brokered, both Mortgage Brokers are responsible for providing the client the required disclosure, and for maintaining mortgage files for the required period of time. If agreed upon, these responsibilities can be delegated to one of the Mortgage Brokers. However, all required disclosures and forms must be maintained by both Mortgage Brokers.


25. Who can referral fees be paid to?


A referral fee for a “simple referral” –- which is a referral where only contact information is provided to a potential borrower, lender or investor –- may be paid to individuals and businesses who are not licensed as Mortgage Brokerages. (See sections 1 and 2 of Ontario Regulation 407/07 - Exemptions from the Requirements to be Licensed.)


Referral fees for “simple referrals”, as well as referrals that involve more than providing contact information, may be paid to licensed Mortgage Brokerages that refer mortgage business to other Mortgage Brokerages. Referral fees cannot be paid directly to Mortgage Brokers or Agents. They must be paid to the Mortgage Brokerage and be fully disclosed in writing to the borrower, lender or investor.

Mortgage Brokerage - When is a Licence Required?

Purpose: This bulletin explains when you need a mortgage broker licence for receiving referrals.

This bulletin applies to mortgage brokerages, brokers and associates. It also applies to real estate brokerages, brokers, associate brokers and associates that refer potential borrowers to a lender or mortgage broker.


Your real estate broker licence does not let you deal in mortgages

Real estate industry professionals often want to help their clients to get a mortgage to buy a property. Although that is commendable, you must be careful not to carry on mortgage broker activities without a mortgage broker licence. The Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) considers encouraging a client to go to a particular financial institution for a mortgage is soliciting—a mortgage broker activity.

The Real Estate Act (Act) does not apply to banks and financial institutions. RECA governs the activities of persons in Alberta that deal in mortgages on behalf of others. A real estate broker licence does not authorize you to deal in mortgages. If you deal in mortgages, you need a mortgage broker licence from RECA.

How we define mortgage

Mortgage has a broad meaning under the Act. It is an interest in land established in writing that secures performing a duty or paying a debt. A lessee’s interest in a leased property is leasehold mortgage. It is registering a mortgage on title to secure payment for a loan.

Dealing in mortgages includes these activities

  • solicit a person to borrow or lend money and secure it by a mortgage.

  • negotiate a mortgage between a borrower and a lender.

  • manage mortgage payments, renewals, repayments and other administrative duties for lenders.

  • buy, sell or exchange mortgages or offer to do so.

  • “holding out” or representing yourself as a person who can do any of the above.

Examples of referrals where you need a mortgage broker licence

In the 2002 case of Toronto Dominion Bank v. Real Estate Council of Alberta, the court reviewed the definition of mortgage broker and, in particular, what it means to solicit a person to borrow or lend money to secure it by a mortgage.

The judge concluded the following five referral scenarios were cases of soliciting business for financial institutions and needed a mortgage brokerage licence:

Referring a client to a lender without promoting the lender

A real estate broker refers his client to a specific lender. The real estate broker does not promote the lender or give any specific information to the client, but asks the client to tell the lender who referred him. The client uses that lender and mentions the name of the real estate broker as requested. The lender pays the real estate broker for the referral.

Referring a client to a lender by promoting the lender

A real estate broker refers his client to a specific lender. The real estate broker promotes the lender by saying things like, the lender has quick service, a good mortgage program, competitive rates, or that his former clients have had good dealings with that lender. The real estate broker asks the client to tell the lender who referred her. The lender pays the real estate broker for the referral.

Referring a client to a lender in person

The real estate broker refers his client to a specific lender. The real estate broker delivers the client’s mortgage application to the lender, arranges a meeting between the client and the lender, or attends the mortgage application session with the client. The lender pays the real estate broker for the referral.

Referring a client to an on-site lender

A lender has an employee at the real estate office. The real estate broker actively recommends the on-site lender and steers clients toward the lender’s on-site employee for pre‑approval or mortgage financing. The lender pays the real estate broker for the referral.

Referring a client to a lender, you have a special agreement with

A real estate brokerage has an agreement with a specific lender. The lender offers the clients of the real estate brokerage a special mortgage program (for example, special mortgage rates or a “cash back” payment after closing). Sometimes the lender’s employee is at the real estate office. The real estate broker actively refers his clients to the lender and the mortgage program. The lender pays the real estate broker for the referral.

The judge concluded her decision by saying that real estate brokers who want to encourage their clients to go to a particular lender can get a mortgage broker licence.

Referring a client to a mortgage brokerage

A real estate broker refers his client to a specific associate at a mortgage brokerage. The mortgage brokerage deals with one lender. The mortgage broker meets with the client, collects the appropriate information and submits the application to a lender. The real estate broker’s role was to refer the client to the mortgage broker. The lender pays the real estate broker for the referral.

Examples of referrals where you do not need a mortgage broker licence

Referring a client to a mortgage brokerage

A real estate broker refers his client to a specific associate at a mortgage brokerage. The mortgage brokerage deals with multiple lenders. The mortgage broker meets with the client, collects the appropriate information and submits the application to a lender. The real estate broker’s role was to refer the client to the mortgage broker. The lender pays the real estate broker for the referral.

The difference between this example and the examples where the lender cannot pay a referral is the mortgage brokerage deals with multiple lenders. The real estate broker did not solicit a mortgage on behalf of a specific lender.

Dealing in Mortgages as a Mortgage Broker

Purpose: To explain when a person needs a licence from the Real Estate Council of Alberta to deal in mortgages.


This bulletin applies to all mortgage broker professionals.


Does a person need a licence to deal in mortgages?


A person who deals in mortgages on behalf of another and for compensation, or holds oneself out as a mortgage broker, must obtain a mortgage broker licence from the Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA), unless they are exempt by the legislation.

The Real Estate Act (Act) does not apply to a person who deals in mortgages on his or her own behalf.

Generally, a licence to deal in mortgages is required if the property, the borrower or the location of the mortgage broker is in Alberta.

What is a mortgage?

The Real Estate Act (Act) defines “mortgage” as a loan secured by a mortgage or any charge on real property or a lease of real property or any charge on real property for the purposes of securing the repayment of money or another consideration.

What does “dealing” in mortgages mean?

Dealing in mortgages occurs when a person, on behalf of another person, does any of the following:

  • solicits a person to borrow or lend money secured by a mortgage

  • negotiates a mortgage transaction

  • collects mortgage payments

  • administers mortgages

  • buys, sells or exchanges mortgages, or offers to do so

  • holding oneself as a mortgage broker

You require a licence from RECA to conduct the above activities.

What does holding oneself out mean?

A person who advertises they are a mortgage broker, or acts in any manner that leads the public to believe they are a mortgage broker, is “holding oneself out” as dealing in mortgages.

“Holding oneself out” as a mortgage broker can include using the term “mortgage broker” to describe oneself, collecting borrower information, or leading a client to believe they are in the business of a mortgage broker.

When a licence is not required?

A licence to deal in mortgages is not required for the following:

  • subject to regulations, a bank, treasury branch, credit union, loan corporation, trust corporation or insurance company

  • an agent or employee of a person referred to in the previous bullet

  • an employee of a person dealing in mortgages as a principal while that principal is so acting in a lawful manner and while the employee is acting within the regular course of employment on behalf of that principal

  • a member in good standing of The Law Society of Alberta acting in the course of and as part of the practice of law, or

  • a person exempt by the regulations.

A person who lends their money secured by a mortgage does not require a licence under the Act. Their employees do not require a licence either.

RECA has adopted the definition of “employee” in the Alberta Employment Standards Code.

Certain corporations do not require a licence under the Real Estate Exemption Regulation.

Unlicensed assistants

In mortgage brokerages, unlicensed assistants must not deal in mortgages.

Examples

  1. A real estate associate refers his buyer to a financial institution for a mortgage. The financial institution offers to pay the associate’s brokerage a referral fee. The brokerage cannot accept the referral fee because the associate is dealing in mortgages on behalf of that financial institution.

    If the real estate associate refers his buyer to a mortgage broker that deals with multiple lenders, the mortgage broker may pay the associate’s brokerage a referral fee.

    In the first example, the associate is dealing in mortgages because they are soliciting borrowers for a specific financial institution. In the second example, the associate is referring the borrower to a mortgage broker who deals with multiple lenders.


  2. An individual designs, maintains and hosts the website for a mortgage brokerage. The website includes information about current mortgage rates, brokerage services and the contact information for a mortgage broker. These activities are not dealing in mortgages and a licence is not required.


  3. A large multi-national corporation helps its employees by financing their primary residence. A corporation does not need a licence to deal in mortgages when it has a program to provide housing for its employees.


  4. An unlicensed assistant is alone in the mortgage brokerage office and answers calls from potential borrowers. The potential borrowers provide their personal information over the phone – name, address, assets and liabilities, income, etc. – and request the assistant advise them on their ability to qualify for a mortgage. The assistant requires a licence to collect information and provide advice.



  5. John, a real estate industry professional, is good friends with a lending officer at a financial institution. John sold a home to a client and agreed to help him obtain a mortgage through his friend. John negotiates mortgage rates and terms between the lender and his clients. John requires a licence as a mortgage broker to carry out these activities
    .

  6. Amelia is not a licensed industry professional. Amelia’s son, Michael, wants to buy his first home. He needs a mortgage but does not want to go through a financial institution. She agrees to lend him the money and secure the loan with a mortgage. Amelia does not need a mortgage broker licence because she is lending her own money.
