North Carolina Mortgage License Bond

What is a Mortgage License Bond?

All persons applying for a mortgage broker, mortgage lender, or mortgage servicer licenses must submit a surety bond to the North Carolina Commissioner of Banks.
As part of the bond’s conditions, the mortgage broker, mortgage lender, or mortgage servicer are obligated to comply with any statutes, ordinances, laws, or regulations applicable to their license.
An action can be taken against a surety bond if the mortgage broker, mortgage lender, or mortgage servicer violates the bonded obligations.
This requirement is in pursuance of The Secure and Fair Enforcement Mortgage Licensing Act.
