The NMLS Federal Registry was created at the direction of federal banking regulators to fulfill the registration requirement of federally chartered or insured institutions and their mortgage loan originators in compliance with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s rules and the Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act (“SAFE Act”). The NMLS Federal Registry Resource Center provides institutions and mortgage loan originators with tools and guides for completing the mandated registration process in NMLS. Questions about the Federal Rule or the SAFE Act should be directed to an institution’s primary federal regulator.

To gain access to the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS) for the first time, a company must submit a form requesting an account.

However, when a state rules that based upon the facts presented that it does not think that the mortgage company is required to obtain a license, you’ll need Herb Thomas’s research to prove that this is correct. The inquiry is a due diligence request that cannot be accomplished by any other source or method. It should at least provide a “chilling effect” on the state licensing enforcement department from pursuing charges of “unlicensed mortgage activities” when the state said a license was not required. The mortgage company must make a business decision whether to rely upon the state response or pursue a license.
