Pennsylvania Mortgage Originators

 

 

 

Mortgage originators are in the profession helping a borrower complete mortgage transactions.

In the Commonwealth, mortgage originators are regulated by the Department of Banking and Securities.

As a condition for licensing, you as a mortgage originator will need to post a surety bond.

Pennsylvania Mortgage Originator Bond: The Bond’s Purposes

 

 

 

The purpose of your Pennsylvania mortgage originator bond is a financial guarantee which ensures that you as an originator will abide by all federal, state, and local rules as these relate to your professional duties.

The Pennsylvania Mortgage Licensing Act provides plenty of information about the regulatory aspects of your industry.

The bond’s assurance and guarantees are for the Commonwealth and your customers, not you or your mortgage loan originator company.

More specifically, the bond protects members of the public from acts of fraud, theft, and criminal misconduct committed by a PA mortgage originator, and its employees, agents, and owners.

Should a customer be able to demonstrate financial harm and have a claim paid from your surety bond, it is your legal responsibility to reimburse the surety for all costs involved in paying the claim.

 

 

 

Pennsylvania Mortgage Originator Bond: The Premium

 

 

 

The premium required for the mortgage originator bond will depend on:

  • The amount of the bond required;
  • Information provided in an application (we can accept an application from you over the phone);
  • A standard credit checking

Bond amounts which are larger will in general require more information than smaller bond amounts.

Such information may include financial and banking statements, net worth, cash on hand, and investments.

AmeriPro Surety Bonds will work with you to ensure that you provide all the information required.
