    No, it’s not, and no bank is going to allow that.

    It is not new in the industry to have the case like you mention. Mortgage can be many type individual or entity, regulated and private organization.

    As long as they met the state and federal requirement, such as it is done in proper procedure and not exceed the interest rate allowed.

    That’s a question that I would DEFINITELY be asking my local real estate commission!

    Of course, the legality can depend on what country you are in, but it is a dubious practice at best.

    It is OK, but you do realize that he is probably making a commission on the deal, and that he may be making a commission on the loan, and, of course, interest on the money loaned. He will disclose this to you.

    Not legal; and dont do it. You and the realtor can go to jail.
