Module 1:The DBR and RI Legal Definitions

This module will introduce you to the Rhode Island Department of Business Regulation (the DBR), and provide definitions for terms used throughout this section. It will also cover the licensing requirements needed for different entities operating in the State of Rhode Island.

Module 2: Licensing Requirements

With certain exceptions, a license is required in order to act in the capacity of a residential mortgage lender, broker, or loan originator originating residential mortgage loans securing one-to-four-unit residential dwellings located throughout the State of Rhode Island. This module will explain the licensing requirements for entities and individuals.

Module 3: The Rhode Island Fair Housing Practices Act (RIFHPA)

Access to housing is a right afforded to all individuals. When people are denied housing based on prohibited characteristics such as age, gender, race, national origin, familial status, and other similar factors, everyone suffers. The federal Fair Housing Act (FHA) prohibits discrimination, in any capacity, pertaining to housing on the federal level.

On the state level, the Rhode Island Fair Housing Practices Act (RIFHPA) was signed into law in April 2021. One of two key components of this Act amends the existing Rhode Island fair housing laws to protect individuals from discrimination based on the type of lawful income that they receive. The other component prohibits landlords from refusing to rent to individuals because they receive government housing vouchers.

Module 4: The Rhode Island Home Loan Protection Act (RIHLPA)

This module covers the Rhode Island Home Loan Protection Act, Rhode Island General Laws, Title 34 Property, Chapter 34-25.2.
