​​​​​​​This license reinstatement course covers three important pieces of California legislation that those who are licensed with the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation (DFPI) must be familiar with. The DFPI requires licensees who are renewing their DFPI licenses to review the California Financing Law (CFL), the California Residential Mortgage Lending Act (CRMLA), and the California Homeowner Bill of Rights (HBOR).

This NMLS course will cover each of the three legislations, starting with the California Financing Law. This module of the course will review the licensing requirements for a finance lender, the expected conduct of those who hold these licenses, the limitations on interest rates, and the investigative powers of the Commissioner of the DFPI.

The second module will review the California Residential Mortgage Lending Act. This module will outline the conduct required to maintain a license, the surety bonding and net worth requirements, prohibited fees and owner actions, and how the Commissioner can cite licensees who don't follow the law.

The third module will highlight the California Homeowner Bill of Rights, a law passed in 2013 to give some protection to homeowners who are facing foreclosure of their residential property. This law outlines seven provisions covering dual tracking, robo-signing, single points of contact, and more.

Licensees who do not complete their annual mortgage license training may be placed in a Reinstatement Period and are prohibited from practicing mortgage loan origination activities until their licenses are reactivated and their continuing education requirements have been completed. Licensees have until the end of February to bring their licenses up to date. A penalty Reinstatement Fee may apply when renewing your license. A license will expire if it is not renewed during the Reinstatement Period.

Not every state agency allows for reinstatement of a license. Check the Annual Renewal Information page on the NMLS website to verify if the agency you are licensed under allows for reinstatement, when the last date of reinstatement is, and what the applicable penalty fees may be.
