Can a mortgage broker registered in BC arrange a mortgage for:

  • a BC resident where the security property is located outside of BC,
  • a non-BC resident where the security property is located in BC, or
  • a non-BC resident where the security property is located outside of BC?

Certainly, improvements in communications and other technologies have made the task easier but do regulatory requirements permit a BC registered mortgage broker to arrange such mortgages? What of brokers who are registered in provinces other than BC – are they permitted to arrange mortgages for BC residents or where the security property is located in BC?

What options are available? Which ones are regulatorily compliant and which ones may attract regulatory action in BC and/or the other province? Do common industry practices, such as co-brokering or using a lending hub, overcome regulatory limitations? Is your only regulatory compliant option to, other than decline to be involved at all, refer the mortgage to a broker registered in the other province?

Regulators are looking at these matters. To stay out of regulatory crosshairs, you need to as well. Let us assist you in that regard.

Learn from our speaker Justin Noda. Be the knowledgeable broker to whom your clients turn for informed and trusted advice.

Our moderator Jennifer Sternig will keep the discussion focused on matters of particular importance to you, drawing not only on her considerable knowledge and experience but as informed by you and our other attendees asking questions in real time.

This webinar will make you a more informed and complete broker. It will make you better able to conduct your business. We look forward to seeing you!
