Compensation of Mortgage Loan Brokers
(Effective April 1, 2011)

Starting April 1, 2011, the Federal Reserve Board's amendments to Regulation Z related to loan originator compensation and anti-steering provisions become effective.

Affected Loans: All loans submitted or locked on or after April 1st will be subject to the new regulation.

Compensation Addendum: Please execute, sign, and return your Loan Originator Compensation And Anti-Steering Addendum ("Compensation Addendum") by March 30th. The Addendum can be downloaded at www.swmc.com/dodd-frank-addendum. You may also contact your Account Executive at 800-453-7884.

Brokers that have not selected a lender compensation plan by the 30th of March will auto default to Lender-Paid 2.00%.

Plan Details

Sun West is offering two compensation models:

Consumer Paid

"Consumer Paid" is the option where origination and processing fees will be paid to the broker directly by the consumer. When "Consumer Paid" compensation is selected, you may not receive compensation directly or indirectly from any other entity in the transaction.

Lender Paid

"Lender Paid" is based on pricing negotiated between the broker and SWMC. The negotiated payment will be used for all loans regardless of program type. When "Lender Paid" compensation is selected, you may not receive compensation or fees from the borrower.
