Module 1: Sources of Vermont Mortgage Law

What is the difference between state law and federal law? Federal laws are written by the United States congress. Federal laws govern the entire United States. State laws are also called state statutes or codes. They are written by your state legislators and apply only to your state. For example, Vermont Code and Statutes only apply to the state of Vermont.

In this module, we'll review important industry terms outlined in the Vermont Licensed Lenders Act, 8 V.S.A. § 2200 through § 2246

Module 2: MLO License Requirements

In this chapter we'll describe the licensing of mortgage loan originators. A mortgage loan originator is a natural person (i.e., an individual) who, for the expectation of compensation, takes a mortgage loan application for a borrower, or offers or negotiates the terms of a residential mortgage loan. Mortgage loan originators do not make mortgage loans, whether residential or commercial, but act as the intermediary between a loan applicant and a mortgage broker or lender.

Module 3: Mortgage Brokers

Mortgage loan originators are expected to follow all mortgage lending rules as provided under Vermont law. Not only is it important to understand the rules for mortgage loan originators, but it is also important to understand what a mortgage broker does and the applicable rules for brokers.

In this module, we will first cover the requirements to become a mortgage broker. We will then take a look at when an individual may act as a mortgage loan originator under a mortgage broker license. Finally, we will learn about certain mortgage lending rules and rules for loans.

Module 4: Required Accounts, Permitted Charges, and Documents

In this module we'll cover some of the disclosures, agreements, and accounting rules that Vermont licensees are required to comply with.

Module 5: Compliance with Vermont Laws

Certain acts and practices are prohibited by law. There are also protections put in place to protect consumers. In this module, we will divide topics into two parts. The first part will first cover a summary of prohibited acts for mortgage brokers and mortgage loan originators. In the second part, we will learn about the protections that are put into place by Vermont and federal law for consumers.
