The West Virginia Division of Financial Institutions (WVDFI) requires mortgage licensees in this state to take a two-hour course on West Virginia mortgage lending rules as part of the licensees' annual continuing education requirement for license renewal. This course covers topics relating to West Virginia mortgage regulations.

This five-module course will begin with an overview of the WVDFI and its Board of Banking and Financial Institutions. We'll then cover mortgage disclosure and advertising rules, conditions and limitations on certain mortgage transactions, and regulations relating to residential mortgage loans. Finally we'll review licensing requirements and prohibited conduct.
