Why are mortgage brokers bonded?
Nevada mortgage broker surety bonds assure that if consumers are wronged in the process of receiving a loan, they have a safeguard from unprofessional acts of business and can be compensated for financial losses. Nevada mortgage broker bonds prevent the mortgage professional from doing the following:
- approving the borrower for a loan that they cannot possibly pay off
- encouraging buyers to engage in fraud during the application process
- pressuring buyers into high-risk loans with high interest rates
- establishing an interest rate based on something other than the borrower’s credit score
- charging additional and unnecessary fees
- targeting at-risk buyers
What’s the fine print?
Nevada mortgage broker surety bonds will remain continuous unless otherwise canceled. The state requires at least 60 days notice from the surety if the bond is terminated.
When filling out the bond form, mortgage brokers must enter the city and state in which business will be conducted.
