No reward for justifying TMB’s product changes to client

Having secured an agreement in principle for one of The Mortgage Business’ House 2 House products in January, my client wants to proceed with the deal.

But since I completed the AIP, a number of changes have been made to the product – the rate and fee have in-creased and an early repayment charge has been introduced.

The result is that I have to explain TMB’s motives to my client. And my reward for the extra work defending TMB’s position is to see the proc fee reduced.

Thanks for all the support, guys.
