Real estate agents accused of mortgage broker deals

From Morning Report, 8:50 am on 10 October 2017

The Real Estate Agents Authority chief executive Kevin Lampen-Smith tells Morning Report the authority expects real estate agents to disclose if they get a commission from referring a client to a mortgage broker. A report from Consumer New Zealand shows some real estate agents are offering clients a mortgage broker who is from within their own company and earning a commission for it without the consumer's knowledge.
