Connecticut Mortgage Licensee Bond

How much does a mortgage licensee bond cost in Connecticut?

Effective October 1, 2014, all companies offering mortgage services must post $100,000 surety bonds per business location. Licensees must also post a fidelity bond with errors and omissions coverage. Fidelity bond amounts are based on the licensee’s volume of servicing activity, with a minimum of $300,000. The new law might also require some mortgage service providers or lenders to post additional bonds depending on the financial standing of the licensee.

Why do I need this bond?

By posting a Connecticut mortgage licensee surety bond, principals (mortgage lenders, correspondent lenders, brokers and loan originators) pledge to conduct business in accordance with the provisions of Section 36a-485 to 36a-498f (inclusive), 36a-534a and 36a-534b of the Connecticut General Statutes. If the principal fails to comply with these terms, the bond protects any consumer harmed as a result of the principal’s unethical business practices up to the full amount of the bond. The principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.

The specific license type (mortgage lender, mortgage correspondent lender, mortgage broker or mortgage loan originator) must be indicated on the bond form.
