Mortgage Broker, Banker, or Lender Bonds
There are mortgage-related surety bonding requirements throughout the United States. Surety bonds are required for mortgage brokers, bankers, servicers, lenders and many others. The surety bond’s purpose is to ensure the consumer is protected in the event of wrongful practices or fraud on the part of the lender or broker.
What actions fall under “wrongful practices” or “fraud”?
- pressuring buyers into certain loan products, including high-risk loans or loans with higher interest rates
- establishing an interest rate on the basis of anything other than the borrower’s credit history
- knowingly approving the borrower for a loan for more than he or she can afford to repay
- encouraging the buyer to use fraud during the application process
- charging unnecessary or additional fees
