There is a key difference between the two.
A loan correspondent is a person who negotiates loans for conventional lending institutions or other lenders. Correspondents often service the loan for the lender and act as the collecting agents.
Where as, on the other hand, mortgage lender is the lender itself, who takes services of such correspondents.
He is the actual person providing funds for the mortgage.

An additional question, how would you interpret the term wholesale table funder in the below section of PA dept of banking law. Would you consider a warehouse line of credit a wholesale table funder if it's just for a short period of time prior to the end investor purchasing the loan?
"Mortgage loan correspondent." A person who engages in the mortgage loan business by directly or indirectly originating and closing mortgage loans in his or her own name utilizing funds provided by a wholesale table funder or other funding sources under the circumstances described under section 6123(6)(relating to mortgage loan business prohibitions) and simultaneously assigning the mortgage loans to the wholesale table funder.
