Why do I need this bond?
A mortgage broker bond is required due to the Indiana Loan Broker Act. These bonds protect consumers from financial loss due to fraud and other unethical practices committed by mortgage professionals. If there is a claim against the bond the surety will pay it up the full bond amount. However, the principal (mortgage broker) must then reimburse the surety.
