The Customer Owned Banking Association has raised concerns about mortgage brokers in a submission to the parliamentary inquiry

The Customer Owned Banking Association (COBA) has raised concerns about mortgage brokers in a submission to the parliamentary inquiry into home ownership. COBA’s concerns include a misunderstanding of brokers limitations as far as lenders and products offered, obligations of the broker when offering products to the customer and the lack of disclosure regarding vertical integration in the mortgage broking industry.

According to the Mortgage and Finance Association of Australia (MFAA), aggregation/mortgage broker groups that are owned by the big 4 banks, totally or substantially, comprise an estimate of 40% of mortgage brokers. The COBA has strongly and repeatedly opposed vertical integration of mortgage broker groups with banks in the past.

Consumers (You) are right to be concerned about mortgage brokers being owned by the banks and lenders. Many of which have access to only a limited number of lenders and loan products, which may result in customers being directed to their owner’s (Banks) home loan products. Consumers want to visit a mortgage broker so that you can select from a wide range of lenders and loan products. If consumers wanted to go to a Bank and and over pay, then they don’t need to go to a bank owned mortgage broker, just be be fed that bank’s products. Consumers expect that a mortgage broker is owned independently from the bank.
