Connecticut Mortgage Broker Surety Bonds

Licensing for mortgage brokers in the State of Connecticut is regulated by the Department of Banking (CDOB). An important step in the licensing process is the submitting and maintaining of a surety bond with the CDOB. This surety bond protects the consumer from damages due to the principal’s (broker) failure to perform any written agreements or commitments, or by the wrongful conversion of funds paid by the borrower or prospective borrower. It also guarantees that the principal (broker) conducts business consistent with Sections 36a-485 to 36a-498f, inclusive, 36a-534a and 36a-534b of the Connecticut General Statutes. Bond amounts vary depending on the loan volume.
