Who Requires the Mortgage Broker or Loan Servicer Bond and Why Is It Needed?

A mortgage broker surety bond or mortgage loan servicer bond is required in Texas by the Texas Department of Savings and Mortgage Lending. The bond has a limit of $50,000 and a 2-year term. The surety bond is needed to satisfy the state licensing requirements for mortgage brokers operating in the state of Texas. The mortgage bonds ensure that the bonded principal will duly and fully comply with all regulations, rules, and orders and timely discharge all obligations arising under the Act. Nationwide minimum standards for mortgage broker licenses were developed in 2008 and adopted in each state including Texas. As a result, in order to obtain a mortgage broker or servicer license, applicants must first register with The Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS) and meet certain requirements. Surety Bonds Direct will file your mortgage surety bond electronically with the NMLS.
