Mortgage lenders that wish to conduct business in Alabama must obtain a Consumer Credit License through the Alabama State Banking Department (ASBD). As part of their licensing requirements, lenders must submit a surety bond to the ASBD. The bond amount varies, and is based on the total dollar amount of mortgage loans closed in the previous year:
|Loans Closed||Bond Amount|
|$0 – $25,000,000||$25,000|
|$25,000,001 to $100,000,000||$50,000|
|Greater than $100,000,000||$75,000|
Applications for lender licenses are handled by the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS), and additional information can be found on the NMLS website. Licensing fees are $700, including the NMLS processing fee, and all fees collected through the NMLS are not refundable.
