Why do I need this bond?

Loan broker bonds in Maine ensure that principals (loan brokers) faithfully perform the duties and obligations pertaining to the business of a loan broker in compliance with Title 9-A M.R.S.A. and the Maine Consumer Credit Code. Prohibited acts under this bond include:

  • refusing to disclose any material information in a timely manner to customers
  • not making a reasonable effort to secure the best rates for loans
  • using deceptive advertising
  • neglecting to provide their personal license number on all advertisements
  • and more

If a broker violates any of the terms of his or her bond agreement and consumers are harmed, the surety will cover all damages up to the full bond amount. The principal must then compensate the surety for all damages paid out.
