Stearns invests in smaller mortgage bankers to build retail business

Stearns Lending is buying large equity stakes in smaller mortgage banking companies as it looks to grow its retail loan production business.

In the first of these transactions Stearns closed on its purchase of a 50.2% equity interest in Certainty Home Loans.

"Today's successful mortgage companies understand the power of economies of scale and combined resources," Stearns CEO David Schneider said in a press release. "Certainty Home Loans' strong retail, consumer-centric model, along with our wholesale, retail and strategic alliance sectors, allows us to provide our employees, customers and partners with industry-leading technology and resources that help the dream of homeownership become a reality. For Stearns Lending, the partnership helps accelerate the growth of Stearns' retail sales channel and broadens our geographic footprint."

Stearns is headquartered in Santa Ana, Calif.

The deal has been termed as a "shared equity partnership" by the two companies and is the first in Stearns' Preferred Partnership program. Plano, Texas-based Certainty Home Loans keeps its leadership, brand name and culture, but gets access to Stearns' technology and capital markets expertise.

Why do you need to input national insurance number on mortgage application? UK?

I have had a mortgage app approved but I was just wondering why you have to input your national insurance number? Is there anything they can find out from the number itself? Would lenders have access to any records from the number?

Its just a way they can confirm who you are, they don't use it to gather any information so it isn't anything for you to worry about.
