Mortgage Broker Bonds

What is a Mortgage Broker Bond?

Mortgage Broker Bonds guarantee that licensed Mortgage Brokers comply with state licensing laws for the application, qualification, and placement of mortgages for the general public.

How does a Mortgage Broker Bond Work?

The requirements for a Mortgage Broker bond may vary from state to state, but in order for someone do business as a Mortgage Broker, a surety bond may be required.   In many states this is a preliminary requirement to secure a Mortgage Broker license. The Mortgage Broker bond is required to protect the customer from fraud.   It is important for the Mortgage Broker to represent their customer in an ethical and legal manor, as required by the state laws and regulations. If not, the customer has a right to file a claim against the Mortgage Broker with the state licensing department.

How much does a Mortgage Broker bond Cost?

The cost of this type of bond varies from each individual and the state in which the bond is required.  When applying for this type of bond, the credit history of the owner and spouse of the company plays a big factor in determining the bond premium.
