What Is the Approval Fee?


When applying for a loan product, it is important for you to have an in-depth understanding of the aspects associated with gaining approval. Loan applications come along with various fees that cover the administrative work that goes into checking, reviewing, and processing each application successfully. 

The approval fee for a mortgage application is also referred to as an application, establishment, or home loan origination fee. Mortgage approval fees are charged to compensate for the administrative hours required to establish a new application docket. The approval fee can also help mortgage providers to determine that their applicants are committed to the process and are unlikely to default on their mortgage repayments. 

As we mentioned previously, there are various fees involved with the mortgage application and approval process that you may be required to pay, including the following:

  • Settlement fees
  • Legal, inclusive of title search fees
  • Valuation fees

Potential borrowers who are concerned with the various fees and expenses involved with the mortgage application process can apply for a no-fee home loan or inquire with their provider about rolling the application fees and expenses into their mortgage. A no-fee home loan is a type of home loan agreement where the one-time and ongoing fees have been waived. This home loan option can save you thousands of dollars over the life of their home loan.
