- We often get this question from loan applicants like yourself:"Why am I receiving phone calls from other mortgage lenders immediately after you pulled my credit report, when I didn't authorize you to share my information with anyone else?"
- OUR PROMISE – Please be assured that• Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation does not and will not share or sell your personal information at any point in the loan process. We also do not and will not partner with any third party who shares or sells your personal information to any outside sources at any point in the loan process. Anytime you apply for a mortgage, your inbox, answering machine and mailbox may fill up quickly with competing offers from other mortgage companies. It's not that the company you applied to is selling or sharing your information. It's caused by other mortgage companies taking advantage of a federal law that allows them to identify potential customers for the products they offer, and then market to them if the offer of credit meets certain legal requirements.
- HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:• When a mortgage lender like Fairway pulls your credit report to qualify you for a loan, an inquiry is generated at the bureau level with all bureaus who were engaged to provide your credit data.
• Other lenders pay to receive lists and/or alerts that tell them when inquiries meeting certain criteria are generated by the credit bureaus.
• Upon receiving these lists and/or alerts, competing mortgage lenders are able to contact you to try and convince you to get a mortgage through their company instead of through the lender who generated the initial inquiry.
