Who needs the mortgage broker bond?
According to the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System, "any person who for compensation or gain, or in the expectation of compensation or gain, directly or indirectly negotiates, places, assists in placement, finds or offers to negotiate, place, assist in placement or find mortgage loans on Arizona property for others" must be licensed as a mortgage broker, in accordance with Section 903, Chapter 9, Title 6 of the Arizona Revised Statutes.
In order to qualify for an Arizona mortgage bond, an applicant's principal place of business must be located in Arizona.
The Bond amount is determined by the class of investors an applicant uses:
If a broker uses institutional investors only, a $10,000 bond is required. However, if a broker uses non-institutional investors, they will be required to obtain a $15,000 bond.
What is the mortgage broker bond?
The mortgage broker bond protects the party requesting the surety bond, the Obligee, against any financial losses as a result of poor financial choices, damages, unethical decisions, or a failure to adhere to state and local laws on the part of you, the Principal. By obtaining your ATV dealer bond, you are telling the Obligee that you can be trusted and that you stand by your business decisions.
