What is an Illinois Loan Broker Bond?
Start assisting your clients in procuring the right loan through this surety bond!
Every loan broker who conducts a loan brokerage transaction where the loan is contingent on the Truth-in-Lending Act is required to procure a surety bond.
The surety bond is also required for every person who is applying for registration before assisting the client in making a loan from a third party or promising to procure a loan.
The surety bond must be maintained with the appropriate amount during the registration period.
The purpose of the surety bond is to guarantee the compliance of the licensed loan broker to the provisions of the Illinois Loan Brokers Act of 1995.
A breach of the Act that is committed by the licensed loan broker will be a ground for a bond claim. When this happens, the person who has been harmed will be eligible to recover the amount lost through the bond.
What is the Loan Broker Bond amount?
The bond amount is $25,000.
If you have an excellent credit score, you will be eligible to pay for a low bond premium or just 1% of the bond amount!
