The Texas Department of Savings and Mortgage Lending is responsible for overseeing registration of Residential Mortgage Loan Servicers through the National Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS).
Applicants must complete the application through the NMLS website and pay the applicable registration and NMLS processing fees.
Applicants are required to obtain a surety bond as a registration requirement. Bonds are based on the loan servicing volumes. Loan servicing volumes totaling less than $25,000 must have a $25,000 bond; loan servicing volumes over $25,000 are required to have a $50,000 bond. The bond ensures that the mortgage loan servicers will comply with the state regulations.
Applicants will need to complete the disclosure questions in the application. If any questions are answered "yes," an explanation is required for each one.
If the applicant will be using any trade names or dba names, provide a copy of the Certificate of Assumed Business Name form the county in which the name was filed.
The premium that you pay for a Texas Residential Mortgage Loan Servicer Bond is dependent on credit and the bond amount required.
