    Hi,

    Is it normal for mortgage brokers to demand to pay back any of their commissions when you discharge or cancel a loan within 24 months?

    Some require this, some don't.

    The main reason behind this is that if the loan is terminated in a certain period of time, the broker can be charged back the amount paid to them by the lender - causing them a significant cost.

    Some do - and if they do, they'll outline it in a "credit quote" which they'll ask you to sign.

    Geeze you're going well Terry to not have a clawback in a decade!
