How Much Does an Arkansas Mortgage Broker, Banker or Servicer Bond Cost?

An Arkansas mortgage broker bond costs between $1,000 and $20,000. The cost is based on the surety bond requirement of $100,000 to $200,000, based on the prior year’s loan activity. This bond is also required for mortgage bankers and servicers.

However, you do not need to pay the full mortgage broker bond. Instead, you may purchase a bond from an Arkansas surety bond company and pay a premium. 

The premium rate is 1% to 10% of the bond amount. The specific rate is determined by your liquid and fixed assets, professional experience and credit score. 

Applicants who have a 700 credit score or better qualify for a rate between 1% and 3%. Those who have a 600 to 699 score may receive a premium rate of 3% to 5%. Credit scores of 599 or lower qualify for a 5% to 10% bond premium rate.

To obtain a mortgage broker license in Arkansas, submit proof of a surety bond to the NMLS. The bond requirement is also enforced for mortgage bankers and servicers in Arkansas. It is established by the Fair Mortgage Lending Act, Ark. Code Ann. §§ 23-39- 501 through 23-29-518.

A mortgage broker license is required for someone who directly or indirectly accepts, solicits or negotiates a mortgage loan application.
