View Course Syllabus

​​​​​​​This course is approved for "Late CE" credit only.

This course will cover several fundamental state regulations that Pennsylvania mortgage loan originators must be familiar with. A number of Pennsylvania laws govern certain aspects of the mortgage loan business, including the Mortgage Licensing Act, the Housing Finance Agency Law, the Consumer Equity Protection Act, and the Loan Interest and Protection Law (known as the “Usury Law”).

This course will also cover the Department of Banking and Securities' statements of policy regarding the first loan mortgage business, mortgage loan modifications, and reverse mortgages. It will also review the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency's emergency home loan program for borrowers who may need temporary help with delinquent mortgage loans.

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.
