In this module, we will be discussing the District of Columbia Department of Insurance, Securities, and Banking (DISB), the main government agency that handles mortgage licensing.
In this module, we will be discussing the Mortgage Lender and Broker Act of 1996 as amended by the Mortgage Lender and Broker Amendment Act of 2009. We will also provide a brief overview of Title 26C of the District of Columbia Municipal Regulations, Chapter 11, Section 1100, which provides regulations for mortgage lenders, mortgage brokers, and mortgage loan originators. Finally, we will look at other state definitions that are related to the practice of mortgage loan originators.
This module discusses the requirements for a person to become a licensed mortgage loan originator. This includes exemptions, background checks, credit reports, education, testing, experience, and sponsorship. We will also take a look at grounds for denying a license and how to maintain a license once you have one.
This section examines required and prohibited conduct for licensees. It discusses fees, interest, recordkeeping, required disclosures, and possible disciplinary actions.
In this module, we will be discussing what are notifications, hearings, and appeals. We will also take a look at suspension, revocation, and recession of licenses. Finally, we will learn about what penalties and fines may occur against mortgage loan originators and possible civil liabilities.
This brief module outlines a few other laws that mortgage loan originators should be aware of, including regulations that protect the money borrowers give to lenders and services to prepay taxes and insurance premiums. We'll also visit the the Home Loan Protection Act, enacted in 2002 to protect consumers of covered loans from being taken advantage of by unsavory lenders.
