Why do I need this bond?
Oklahoma mortgage lender bonds ensure that if consumers are wronged by the principal (mortgage lender) during a mortgage transaction, they have a safeguard from unprofessional business practices and can be compensated for any financial losses. 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 disclose information required by state law, such as annual interest rate percentages
- advertising a product at a low price when it is not available for sale 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 (mortgage lender) violates the terms of his or her bond agreement and consumers are harmed as a result, the surety will cover damages up to the full bond amount. The principal must reimburse the surety for any damages paid out.
