Why do I need this bond?

By posting a Kentucky mortgage loan broker bond, principals (mortgage loan brokers) pledge to fully comply with all the provisions of the KRS statute Chapter 286.8. Specifically, these bonds ensure that if the principal partakes in any fraudulent act and consumers are harmed as a result, the surety will compensate all harmed parties up to the full bond amount.

Prohibited acts under this bond include:

  • employing a scheme, artifice or device to defraud
  • failing to disburse funds
  • delaying the close of a mortgage loan to increase fees, costs and interest
  • obtaining property by misrepresentation
  • failing to make disclosures
  • failing to comply with federal laws

Ultimately, the principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.

What’s the fine print?

Kentucky mortgage loan broker bonds remain continuous unless the surety chooses to cancel the bond. For cancellation, the surety must send a written cancellation notice to the commissioner 30 days prior to the effective cancellation date.

All Kentucky bonds are subject to a state-imposed 1.8% surcharge.
