Is it legal to work at your own mortgage brokerage and also work as a loan officer for another lender?

Deal Score0

I run a small branch of a HUD approved lender and have a lot of brokers who want to work for me to close their fha loans, but close everything else under their own license. I trust most of these people since I used to close loans with them as a wholesale AE. I am thinking of charging a flat fee per loan and then letting them retain 90% of the total commission on the loan.

    Just consult an attorney and get them to sign a contract stating what you will and won’t do on each deal. Sounds like they are just subcontracting work to you. As long as you or they haven’t signed any non-compete agreements, you should be okay.

    It sounds to me like “moon lighting”. When you were hired, did you sign anything telling you that you were not allowed to pick up a second job in a similar field?
    I would not outright ask your employer for advice, but there is nothing they can do to prevent you from doing this in CT. I don’t know where you live.
