Illinois Residential Mortgage License Bond: The Purpose of this Surety Bond




The purpose of your Illinois residential mortgage license bond is a financial guarantee for the people of Illinois – your customers — that you will be in compliance with all rules and regulations governing the mortgage broker profession.

Specifically, this includes following the Residential Mortgage License Act of 1987 and any and all subsequent amendments.

Specifically, and according to the Act, the bond protects the Illinois consumer against any criminal acts and omissions committed by a residential mortgage licensee in the conduct of their professional duties.

Such conduct – or misconduct — extends not only to the residential mortgage licensee, but criminal acts committed by others, including employees, agents, and owners.

But residential mortgage license bond is not an insurance policy.

And because it is not, should a claim be deemed credible and therefore paid by the surety, it is the legal responsibility of the principal (the owner of the surety bond) to reimburse the surety for all costs, fees, and amounts involved in the settlement of the claim.




Illinois Residential Mortgage License Broker Bond: The Premium and Duration




The premium for this surety bond is the price you will pay for its issuance.

The bond, whenever purchased, expires on December 31st of that same year. If it is purchased on December 31st, then it expires the following December 31st.

Depending on when the bond is purchased, the premium may be prorated.

The amount required for the surety bond will be determined by the following:

  • The surety bond amount required;
  • An application, along with a standard credit check.  For larger bond amounts, more information may be requested (i.e. financial statements).

Applicants with very good credit may pay as little as 1% annually for the surety bond amount required; however, the amount you will be required to pay will be depend on your credit score.
