Licensing of Washington D.C. Mortgage Lenders
D.C. mortgage lenders, as with D.C. mortgage brokers, are licensed by the DCRA – Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs.
The filing of your license and surety bond are facilitated through NMLS, the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System.
Our agency can electronically file your surety bond on your behalf, or we can send the bond to you for filing.
Qualifying and the Premium
The Washington D.C. mortgage lender bond amount is between $12,500 to $50,000. The surety bond amount required depends on the dollar volume of the loans you produce in Washington D.C.
We offer this bond for any amount required up to $50,000 without a credit check.
The breakdown for loan origination levels, surety bond amounts, and the corresponding annual premium are as follows:
- $12,500 surety bond amount for loan volume of $1million dollars or less – $100 annual premium;
- $17,500 surety bond amount for loan volume of $1 million but less than $2 million – $131 annual premium;
- $25,000 surety bond amount for loan volume of more than $2 million but less than $3 million – $188 annual premium;
- $50,000 surety bond amount for loan volume of more than $3 million – $375 annual premium.
When you call us, we’ll take the very short surety bond application from you over the phone. This will consist of asking you the name as it should appear on your surety bond, along with your company’s contact information.
After payment of the premium, the bond will be issued for you, along with a Power of Attorney form. Again, we can electronically file it on your behalf, or we can mail the original documents to you for filing through NMLS.
