What is a Massachusetts mortgage broker, lender, or originator bond?
Massachusetts Division of Banks Regulations 209 CMR 42.00 and Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 255 F Section 12 requires individuals file a surety bond as financial protection for consumers before they can be licensed to work as a mortgage professional in the state. The state uses separate official bond forms for mortgage loan originators, mortgage brokers, and mortgage lenders, but they're all filed electronically directly with the NMLS. Each form has its own requirements to ensure mortgage professionals comply with financial regulation when providing financial service in the state.
What does a mortgage loan originator, broker or lender bond protect against?
By filing a surety bond for licensing compliance, a mortgage loan originator, broker, or lender agrees to comply with applicable consumer finance laws as outlined in state laws. If they fail to do so, their issuing surety company will pay valid claims to the state or harmed consumers up to the full bond amount, which the mortgage professional must reimburse.
Who regulates Massachusetts mortgage brokers, lenders, and originators?
The Massachusetts Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulations Division of Banks enforces licensing requirements for mortgage professionals working in the state. You can contact the Division by calling 1(617)956-1500.
