The types of financial advice products we can give advice on are:

Fees and Expenses

Generally Cross Country Mortgages won’t charge you any fees for the financial advice we provide to you. This is possible because, on settlement of a loan, we usually receive commission from the lender. Any exceptions to this general position are explained below

We may charge you a one-off fee if the following occurs:

When we don’t receive commission from the lender: If you request that we provide financial advice and we do not receive a commission from the lender, we may charge you a one-off fee. Any such fee would be agreed and authorized by you in writing before we complete the services, and would be based on an estimate of the time spent providing the advice

(This may arise in the rare event that you request that we provide services in relation to either a product that is offered by a lender that we do not hold an accreditation with, or a product that is outside our usual arrangements with our product providers).

You will be invoiced for any one-off fee and will be given 30 days to make payment

Conflict of interests and Commissions

On settlement of a mortgage, we usually receive commission from the applicable product provider. The commission is generally of an upfront nature but may also include a trail commission. We also receive a fixed rate roll over fee from some product providers if we assist in refixing your loan.

We manage these conflicts of interest by:

  • Always recommending the best product for your purpose regardless of the type and amount of commission we will receive.

  • Ensuring the amount of any loan is in accordance with your identified needs.

  • Providing you with the below table showing commission rates and types by product provider. The commission we receive on loans is calculated as a percentage of the loan.
