New York Mortgage Loan Originator BondThose who are applying for an individual mortgage loan originator or a mortgage loan originating entity license must submit a surety bond with a sufficient amount required by the Superintendent of Financial Services of the State of New York.

Individual MLOs who are employed by a mortgage loan originating entity may use the latter’s bond as a requirement for the license so long as the surety bond provides coverage to each mortgage loan originator employed.

The licensed MLO’s lawful fulfillment of duties is one of the reasons for the surety bond requirement. The surety bond will also serve as a financial protection tool in case the mortgage loan originator defaults on its contractual obligation. The person who has been harmed by such misconduct will be entitled to compensation through the surety bond.
