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.
