This course will cover several fundamental state regulations that Oregon mortgage loan originators must be familiar with. Being familiar with important laws in Oregon's residential mortgage loan industry will ensure that mortgage loan originators are compliant with the state's expectations of MLO behavior.
This five-module course starts out with a description of the Department of Consumer and Business Services (DCBS) and its Division of Financial Regulations (DFR). We'll then review licensing requirements, financial statements, reporting changes to the DCBS, and MLO restrictions on working for a single entity in the second module of the course. The third module covers consumer disclosures in certain residential mortgage transactions, handling client trust funds, and regulations with advertising mortgage products. The fourth module covers various prohibited acts that licensees cannot participate in during the course of business, and the fifth module explains the DCBS investigation process.
