2.- As for the intermediation service offered:

Characteristics of the Service. BMS will provide financial intermediation services without exclusivity with any credit or financing institution, so that, at the request of the interested party, the specific financing needs will be studied in order to go to the market to find a financing solution through individuals or legal entities that grant a loan/credit with a mortgage guarantee, providing the interested party with various simulations of the repayment schedules according to the most appropriate repayment system or the one chosen by the Customer. Due information will be provided to the Client prior to the signing of the financing contract by obtaining the required documentation from the financing entity/person. BMS is not the financier of the loan, but its competences are limited to the intermediation between the borrower and the lender.

The Customer is obliged to inform BMS in a reliable manner of any doubts regarding the financing contract, as well as of the specific clauses of the financing contract which he wishes to negotiate individually with the entity/lender.

Price: The fees will be fixed and will accrue from the moment the financing contract is formalised. Notwithstanding the above, BMS will be entitled to charge 80% of the fixed fees agreed for the intermediation when, having obtained one or more binding offers of financing that meet the characteristics demanded in the financing application, the loan has not been formalised for reasons attributable to the Client. BMS does not receive any remuneration from the lender as a result of the conclusion of the loan.

BMS’ fees are as follows:

  • Mediation in obtaining consumer loans:
    • A maximum of 5% of the capital granted with a minimum of 600
  • Mediation in obtaining mortgage loans with banks:
    • Between 3% and 6% of the capital granted, with a minimum of 2,500 euros.
  • Mediation in obtaining mortgage loans with private capital:
    • Between 3% and 20% of the capital granted, with a minimum of 2,500 euros.
  • Restructuring Business Banking Pool:
    • Between 0.50% and 5% of the capital, with a minimum of 5,000 euros.

Commissions, Charges and Expenses. Obtaining the financing required by the interested party generates or may generate a series of commissions and/or expenses that are completely unrelated to the remuneration derived from the intermediary service, such as appraisals, opening commissions, service commissions, penalties, tax on documented legal acts, notary and registry fees, agency fees as well as those others that may result from the cancellation of previous charges, which will be invoiced by the corresponding entities or persons.

Taxes: The amount invoiced for financial intermediation is exempt from VAT.

Method of payment: The payment of the intermediation fees will be made by bank transfer or bank cheque made out to the company, and the corresponding invoice will be sent after the fees have been collected.

In case of Loan Grouping: If the financial intermediary advises the grouping of loans or credits into a single one, it will inform about the annual equivalent rate and the essential characteristics of the proposed loan or credit and its comparison with the loans or credits it intends to group. The comparison shall also take into account all the costs and fees for the intermediary service and all the costs and fees of the proposed loan or credit agreement.

Right of Withdrawal: THE CUSTOMER has the right to withdraw from the brokerage contract by means of reliable communication to BMS, provided that the requested operation has not been formalized and that a period of 14 days has not elapsed since the signing of the contract, without the need to give any reason and without any cost to the CUSTOMER.
