No question is a silly question with the right mortgage broker. A mortgage broker should be happy to answer any questions that you have, and if there is something you don’t understand – be HONEST. This is a big and very important commitment for you, and your mortgage broker should ensure that you are comfortable that you understand the mortgage product being recommended and any other parts of the mortgage process that are relevant to you.
