Are referral fees to real estate agents, title companies, mortgage brokers, or others allowed in Michigan?

No. The Mortgage Brokers, Lenders, and Servicers Licensing Act and the Secondary Mortgage Loan Act require that licensees/registrants comply with Regulation X. Section 1024.14 of Regulation X prohibits the payment of referral fees. Any referral of a settlement service is not a compensable service, except as set forth in § 1024.14(g)(1). A company may not pay any other company or the employees of any other company for the referral of settlement service business.
