More Info

Congress passed the Homeowners Protection Act (HPA) in 1998 to facilitate the cancellation of private mortgage insurance (PMI). Lenders may require borrowers to purchase PMI when they make down payments of less than 20%, and the loan-to-value ratio (LTV) is high. PMI helps consumers by enabling them to secure a loan when they have little cash for a down payment. It also helps lenders to protect their interests while making these riskier loans, and to recover costs associated with the resale of foreclosed property. This professional development online course provides a review of the provisions of the Homeowners Protection Act, including definitions associated with the Act, identification of entities covered by its provisions, disclosure requirements, guidelines for compliance with the HPA, and penalties for violations.

The Bank Secrecy Act of 1970 (or BSA, or otherwise known as the Currency and Foreign Transactions Reporting Act) requires financial institutions to assist U.S. government agencies to detect and prevent money laundering. Specifically, the Act requires financial institutions to keep records of cash purchases of negotiable instruments, to file reports of cash transactions exceeding $10,000 (daily aggregate amount), and to report suspicious activity that might signify money laundering, tax evasion, or other criminal activities. The BSA was passed by Congress in 1970 and is sometimes referred to as an “anti-money laundering” law (AML), or jointly as BSA/AML. This professional development online course will provide an overview of the requirements imposed on those persons subject to the Anti-Money Laundering Law, including information relating to currency transaction reports, suspicious activity reports, and customer identification programs.

New Mexico Mortgage License Requirements

Learn about the New Mexico mortgage education requirements for mortgage licensing.

In the state of New Mexico, mortgage loan originators are required to:

    1. Complete a Criminal Background Check (CBC).
    2. Authorize a credit report through the NMLS.
    3. Fulfill all state and federal education requirements as designated by your state agency.
    4. Take and pass a National Test.
    5. Surety Bond - Each applicant must obtain a surety bond, except that an applicant may use the surety bond of the mortgage loan company they are working for if they are a W-2 employee and sponsored by that mortgage loan company through the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System. A surety bond in the amount of $50,000 will be required for first year as a licensed mortgage loan originator. After the first year, the surety bond will be based on the total dollar amount of mortgage loans originated annually in New Mexico by the licensee and will be based on the following scale:
      • $0 - $3,000,000 = $50,000 surety bond
      • Greater than $3,000,000 but less than $10,000,000 = $100,000 surety bond
      • Greater than $10,000,000 = $150,000 surety bond
