Why do I need this bond?
New York mortgage loan originator bonds assure that if consumers are wronged in the process of a mortgage transaction, they have a safeguard from unprofessional acts of business and can be compensated for any unjustified financial losses they may face. Unethical acts covered by this bond include, but are not limited to:
- defrauding or misleading borrowers and lenders
- obtaining property by fraud or misrepresentation
- failing to make disclosures required by State law, such as annual interest rate percentages
- advertising a product at a low price when it is not available for sale in order to entice customers to buy a more expensive product, otherwise known as “bait and switch” advertising
- collecting or charging any prohibited fees
If the principal violates the terms of his or her bond agreement and a consumer is harmed as a result, the surety will pay for all damages up to the full bond amount; however, the principal is responsible for reimbursing the surety for any money it pays out to consumers in a timely manner.

What’s the fine print?
New York mortgage broker surety bonds will remain continuous unless otherwise canceled by the surety or the principal. If either party decides to terminate the bond early, a written notice is required to be given to the obligee prior to cancellation. All mortgage loan originators must post a surety bond of the correct amount that covers all employed mortgage loan originators pursuant to the state laws and regulations.
