The Mortgage Bank is a bank specialising in the granting and/or service of mortgage credit. A mortgage bank in the US is a government-approved bank that provides mortgage credit directly to the consumer. There is a distinction between a mortgage lender and a mortgage brokers in that the mortgage lender finances credit with his own money.
Generally, a mortgage bank arranges a mortgage and places it on a pre-determined stock line of credit before it can be resold to an Investor, usually a large institution. This is the term used to describe the sale of a mortgage bank to another borrower as the sale of the mortgage on the aftermarket.
Unlike the prime mortgage markets, which usually refer to the bank that buys the trustee mortgage certificate from the landlord for the nominal amount of the mortgage, corrected for discounting points and other pricing changes. The mortgage lenders are selling the credits because the money they receive repay their stock line of credits, which allows the mortgage lender to keep lending.
Mortgage banks are not governed as Bundes- or Landesbank and do not accept consumer or corporate deposit. Mortgage banks raise some capital to cover the stock line, and the majority of the funding is provided by the stockholder. Mortgage banks can differ in terms of sizing.
A number of mortgage lenders operate throughout the country. For some, it can generate a large credit amount that exceeds that of a country-wide bank. Most mortgage lenders have specialised service providers for functions such as buy-back and detection of frauds. Its two main income streams are the charges for lending and the charges for credit support (if they are a credit intermediary).
Most mortgage lenders choose not to repay the credit they grant. Through the sale soon after completion and financing they are entitled to a "service release premium". Subsidiary investors who purchase the credit earns income for serving the credit for each of the months in which the credit is held by the debtor.
In contrast to a state-approved Sparkasse, a mortgage bank usually specialises only in the granting of mortgage credit. A lot of people do not accept customer deposit and call themselves mortgage lenders so as not to be mistaken for a bank. In general, a mortgage bank works under the various bank statutes that apply to each state in which it is active.
Mortgages in the US fell from 20% in 1980 to over 41% in 1991 during the savings and credit crisis.
