Why do I need this bond?
By posting a surety bond, Kansas mortgage professionals agree to conduct business in compliance with applicable state and federal laws, including the Uniform Consumer Credit Code and the Kansas Mortgage Business Act. This specific bond ensures that if consumers are wronged by a mortgage professional’s business practices, they can be compensated for any resulting financial losses.
Additionally, the bond states that the surety underwriting company that produces the bond will promptly remit payment if the principal (mortgage professional) fails to pay any of the following:
- expenses, fines, fees or refunds pursuant to a settlement agreement with the State of Kansas Office of the State Bank Commissioner (OSBC)
- expenses, fines and fees that become lawfully due pursuant to a final judgment or order
- any losses or damages that are determined by the OSBC to have been incurred by any borrower or consumer as a result of the principal’s or its agent’s failure to faithfully comply with the laws of the state and industry
The mortgage professional must reimburse the surety for any damages paid out.
