I have no idea whether the mortgage company would have a problem with it. Of course, you can charge any amount of commission you wish.
I would not pay more for the property just to lower the amount I had in it by a little bit. Being successful in real estate is not about seeing how little you can put into a property
Just lower your commission and lower the offer on the property so the owner nets the same amount. You will reduce the amount that your office receives. This is good because you lose 80% of that amount.
