In the US mortgage industry, the debate surrounding class-action commission lawsuits has been reignited earlier this year. Supporters of these lawsuits argue that traditional brokerages and lenders in the industry are charging mortgage applicants huge commissions. This has resulted in consumers getting less competitive rates and higher costs when financing their home.
However, critics of these class-action commission litigations argue that the lawsuits are fundamentally misguided. They note that in the past, discount brokerages have offered even lower fees, but these have failed to attract a large amount of customers. This raises questions regarding the efficiency of such lawsuits.
