Mississippi Mortgage Lender Bond
AmeriPro Surety Bonds | 844-589-9732
Mississippi Mortgage Lenders
Mortgage lenders conducting business in Mississippi are regulated by the state’s Department of Banking and Consumer Finance.
A requirement for licensing is that you obtain a $150,000 surety bond, which thereafter is filed through NMLS, the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System. Once purchased, our agency can also electronically file the bond on your behalf.
Your mortgage lender bond will have an expiration date of December 31st and the premium may therefore be prorated as to price depending on when during the year it’s purchased. The premium that we discuss assumes a full year term.
Qualifying and the Premium
Qualifying for the $150,000 Mississippi mortgage lender bond involves:
- Completing an application. Our agency can begin the application process with you over the phone, but the application will ultimately require your signature and that of a witness;
- Providing a recent financial statement;
- Undergoing a credit score inquiry.
Applicants will need to have good credit to qualify. If approved, the bond’s premium is $1125 for a full year term.
Once the premium has been paid, we can either provide you the original bond to file through NMLS, or we will electronically file it for you.
Additional Premium Payment Options
The $1125 premium is for a full year term. Your bond renews annually. With our agency, the Mississippi mortgage lender bond can also be prepaid for up to 3 years, thereby offering you a savings over renewing your bond each year.
The premium prepayment options and savings are as follows:
- If prepaid for 2 years, the premium is $2025, a $225 savings;
- If prepaid for 3 years, the premium is $2925, a $450 savings.
Purpose of Your Surety Bond
The purpose of this surety bond is to ensure your compliance with the Mississippi S.A.F.E. Mortgage Act, and any future amendments to this legislation. The bond protects the Mississippi consumer from any harm which occurs due to the failure of a licensee to comply with any statutes by malfeasance or gross negligence.
