Why do I need this bond?
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
