New York Mortgage Brokers
One of the things to know about licensing for New York mortgage brokers is that the $10,000 surety bond requirement is not required until after the application has been approved.
Once approved, the surety bond, however, is required before the mortgage broker license is issued.
In New York, mortgage brokers are regulated by the state’s Department of Financial Services .
The Department serves as the obligee for this surety bond. AmeriPro Surety Bonds offers the New York mortgage broker bond for you both as a first time and renewal bond.
Purpose of the New York Mortgage Broker Bond
The $10,000 NY mortgage broker surety bond is a financial guarantee that a registered mortgage broker will abide by all rules and statutes governing their profession.
More specifically, the mortgage broker bond is a financial guarantee which protects others — your customers — from acts of fraud, theft, willful and criminal misconduct and malfeasance on the part of a mortgage broker in the performance of their duties as a licensee.
The existence of this surety bond allows those who can demonstrate financial harm to be able to file against the surety bond to recoup monies lost, up to the total of $10,000 aggregate.
For the mortgage broker, however, the bond is not a liability insurance policy. The mortgage broker will be legally obligated to reimburse the surety in full for all costs involved in paying a claim.
Cost of the $10,000 New York Mortgage Broker Bond
