Know why this surety bond matters to your business and how to easily apply today!
A surety bond is a standard licensure requirement for persons who are intending to become loan brokers in the State of Indiana.
A surety bond will serve as a guarantee to the state that the loan broker will fulfill his or her obligations according to the statutes that cover the industry.
It will also be conditioned that the surety bond will indemnify any person who will be harmed by the potential wrongdoings committed by the licensed loan broker.
By filing a case against the surety bond, the Obligee may recover the losses incurred on behalf of the beneficial recipient or the injured party.
This requirement is enforced by the Secretary of State, Securities Division of the State of Indiana in pursuance of Section 23-2-5-5 of the Indiana Code.
What is the Loan Broker Bond amount?
The amount will depend on the loan broker’s total amount of residential mortgage loans originated during the previous calendar year.
Originated Residential Mortgage Loans in the Previous Year
Less than $5,000,000 = $50,000
$5,000,000 – $20,000,000 = $60,000
More than $20,000,000 = $75,000
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!
