Who is required to be licensed

Individuals who deal directly with customers who are seeking mortgage loans and solicit, negotiate, explain or finalize the terms of the loan.  “Soliciting” means the discussion of a mortgage loan product or products with a customer or potential customer, but does not include the taking of customer information or referral of a customer or the customer’s information to a person engaged in mortgage origination.  While the State of Delaware currently licenses businesses that employ loan originators (lenders licensed under Chapter 22 of Title 5, and mortgage loan brokers licensed under Chapter 21 of Title 5) all non-exempt individuals who engage in mortgage loan originating must now be licensed irrespective of how they are compensated.

Pre-requisites for license applications

  • 20 hours of NMLS approved pre-licesning education
  • Passing score on both the National and State components of the MLO SAFE Test
  • Fingerprints and FBI criminal history background check
  • Authorization for credit report
  • Proof of surety bond coverage or written confirmation that the employer is providing coverage through its surety bond. Employer's confirmation form is available on www.banking.delaware.gov
All Delaware licensed mortgage loan originators will be subject to an annual $500 supervisory assessment, which will be billed by the Office of the State Bank Commissioner in July of each year and is due by August 1st each year.
