Virginia Mortgage Broker or Loan Originator Bond

How much does a mortgage broker or lender or mortgage loan originator bond cost in Virginia?

The State Corporation Commission’s Bureau of Financial Institutions in Virginia requires mortgage brokers and mortgage loan originators to post surety bonds in varying amounts. The required bond amount is based on the broker’s annual volume of loans brokered. Applicants should verify their required bond amount with the state prior to bonding.

Mortgage license bonds are subject to review by an underwriter, meaning the price an applicant will pay is based on their personal credit. However, if the underwriter determines the applicant to be low risk, they will typically approve the application for just 1-3% of the total bond amount.

Why do I need this bond?

Virginia mortgage broker bonds and mortgage loan originator bonds ensure that principals (brokers, lenders and originators) strictly comply with the provisions of Chapter 16 and/or Chapter 17 of Title 6.2 of the Code of Virginia and all other applicable laws and regulations. If the principal fails to conduct business ethically and lawfully, the bond protects the state and any person who suffers loss as a result of the principal’s actions up to the full bond amount.

The surety will cover all losses initially, and the principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.

What’s the fine print?

Virginia mortgage broker and mortgage lender surety bonds remain in full force and effect until canceled. The surety can terminate the bond by giving written notice of its intent to do so to the principal and to the Commissioner of Financial Institutions at least 90 days prior to the effective termination date.
