​​​​​​​There are 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 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.

View Course Syllabus

This course will instruct mortgage loan originators on a number of regulations that they will have to comply with while taking part in their mortgage loan origination activities. Rules, such as those implemented by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, are set in place to protect the interest and well-being of consumers who apply for mortgages to purchase or refinance their properties. To ensure that their business practices satisfy the regulations adopted by federal laws, mortgage loan originators need to keep current on the guidelines published by entities such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

Topics and Learning Objectives

This course consists of three sections and a final exam

  1. Maintaining Compliance in the Mortgage Industry

  2. Ethical Practices and Common Fraud Schemes

  3. Non-traditional Mortgage Products

  4. Final exam

Total study time: 7 credit hours (5 hours, 30 minutes)

Module 1: Maintaining Compliance in the Mortgage Industry

Study Time: 3 clock hours (150 minutes of federal law)

Each year, the NMLS receives feedback from various agencies on problems and errors occurring in the mortgage industry. This feedback is then incorporated into your annual continuing education requirements as mandated by the NMLS. This module will cover a variety of conduct issues related to federal laws that are among the most frequently cited by examiners as industry problems.

Module 2: Ethical Practices and Common Fraud Schemes

Study Time: 2 clock hours (100 minutes of ethics, fraud, and consumer protection)

In this section we will review ethics in mortgage lending and how they affect the mortgage industry. We'll discusses ethical practices and consumer protection responsibilities of the mortgage loan originator, and outline various ethical standards as they relate to a compliance approach of ethical lending. This section will provide you with checklists of possible red flags of mortgage fraud.

The second half of this section will outline a variety of mortgage fraud schemes. Many of the cases outlined in this section cost millions of dollars in losses for lenders, resulted in property foreclosures, and caused stress for those who were victims of these schemes. Some of these dubious plans involved mortgage loan originators and others in the industry, while others were perpetrated by loan applicants who recruited unsuspecting buyers. Reviewing various types of fraud that occurred in our industry may help you recognize it if a suspicious application ever crosses your desk.

Module 3: Non-traditional Mortgage Products

Study Time: 2 clock hours (100 minutes of non-traditional mortgage)

Besides a traditional conventional loan product, there are other options available when it comes to rehabilitating a home for purchase and refinance that may more perfectly fit the rehab loan needs of the borrower. This module will explain several non-traditional mortgage products, exploring other options available to borrowers.

We'll go over the Fannie Mae HomeStyle® renovation program, the Good Neighbor Next Door program, reverse mortgages, the VA loan, and Fannie Mae's new RefiNow™ program.
