What is a mortgage loan originator surety bond?

A mortgage loan originator surety bond is a type of license and permit bond required by the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies to ensure that consumers can seek recourse for financial losses if they’re wronged by a professional loan originator during a mortgage transaction. The amount of the bond is determined based on the number of individuals employed by the originator. Mortgage originators are the original mortgage lender and work with borrowers to complete a loan.

If the principal (the loan originator) violates the terms of the bond agreement and a consumer is harmed as a result, a claim can be made on the bond.

Colorado mortgage loan originator bonds remain continuous unless otherwise canceled. If the bond is to be canceled, the surety must provide 30 days written notice to the obligee prior to cancellation.
