Nevada Mortgage Broker or Banker Bond


Nevada Mortgage Broker or Banker Bond Information

The Nevada Division of Mortgage Lending requires surety bonds as part of the licensing process for mortgage brokers and mortgage bankers. The bond must be in an amount of $50,000 if the applicant arranges $20,000,000 or less in loans per year, or in the amount of $75,000 if the applicant arranges more than $20,000,000 in loans per year.

The bond guarantees that the bonded party will comply with the rules, regulations and guidelines established by the state. Typically, mortgage professionals will be required to apply for surety bonds in each state in which they operate and mortgage bond amounts and obligations vary by state. As a leading mortgage bond provider, Surety Bonds Direct is here to help you through this process.
