The California Mortgage Broker is a $25,000.00 bond. This bond is available in 1 year term.

The Mortgage Broker Bond is a license and permit surety bond required by government entities to receive a license within that jurisdiction for lending money, primarily for mortgages. It is also known as a finance lender surety bond. The bond provides security that the mortgage broker will operate according to the applicable laws. This license and permit bond helps protect the public against anyone operating outside the established laws and regulations governing mortgage brokers in that state.

Who needs the mortgage broker or finance lender bond?

All persons applying for a California Mortgage Broker/Finance Lender license are required to post and maintain a surety bond in the amount of $25,000, as outlined by California Financial Code Section 22112. A finance lender is defined as any person engaged in the business of making consumer or commercial loans. A broker includes any person engaged in the business of negotiating or performing any act as a broker in connection with loans made by a finance lender. A broker licensed under California Finance Lenders Law may only broker loans to licensed finance lenders.

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 bond, you are telling the Obligee that you can be trusted and that you stand by your business decisions.
