How Much Does a Montana Mortgage Broker Bond Cost?

A Montana mortgage broker bond can cost at least as $250, depending on the amount of the bond. In Montana, mortgage brokers and lenders must secure a bond based on their annual loan production amounts. Additionally, mortgage servicers must have a second bond based on the total amount of unpaid mortgage loans.

In either case, the bond amount depends on the total calculation. For example, if you’re a mortgage broker with less than $50 million in loans produced, you must secure a $25,000 bond. If the total equals or exceeds $50 million annually, the bond increases to $50,000.

Here’s a table illustrating the different bond types, amounts, and premium costs. You can also see how your credit score affects the price. Typically, a good score helps you get a lower rate of around 1% to 3% of the bond amount.

How to Get a Montana Mortgage Broker Bond

Unlike most surety bonds, getting a mortgage broker bond in Montana requires some due diligence. Because the bond amount depends on how many loans you’ve originated, the process can be a little tricky.

We recently helped a mortgage broker in Billings get the correct surety bond for her business. Once she calculated her annual loan production, we were able to get her a quote for a $50,000 mortgage broker bond. Our goal is to make bonding as convenient as possible.

1. Apply for the Bond Online

Using our online application form, you can request a quote for your specific bond, depending on your particular needs. We just need some extra information about yourself and your business to process the application.

2. Get the Best Bond Quote

In most cases, we can process a mortgage broker bond quickly. However, sometimes, the quote may take up to 24 or 48 hours to come through, depending on the complexity. Regardless of the time frame, you can be sure we’re getting you the best quote possible.

3. Pay the Premium

Once you receive your quote, you can pay the premium, and upon payment we will send you your bond via email. We can also mail a physical copy if requested.

Mortgage Broker Bond Requirements in Montana

The state of Montana requires mortgage brokers, lenders, and servicers to register with the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System (NMLS). You must also submit a Montana mortgage surety bond form with a minimum value of $25,000, based on the amount of annual loan production. Understanding how to get a mortgage license can streamline the entire process and simplify getting your business up and running.

You can also check out the list of specific requirements for registering as a mortgage broker in Montana. Although you’re getting a license through the NMLS, you must still register and show proof of licensure (and bonding). The Montana Department of Administration Banking and Financial Institutions Division is in charge of verifying these details.
