All new applicants who wish to apply for a Mortgage Loan Originator license in Maryland must complete and submit Form MU4 through NMLS. This includes those new to the industry and those who have previously originated in the industry without a Maryland Mortgage Loan Originator license pursuant to an exemption. Recent legislation eliminated certain exemptions and those previously originating under such exemptions must obtain a mortgage loan originator license.
Applicants must mail the applicable Maryland specific documents detailed on the checklist to: Commissioner of Financial Regulation, Attn: Licensing Unit, 500 N. Calvert Street, Suite 402, Baltimore, MD 21202. The Maryland Commissioner of Financial Regulation will notify the applicant with respect to deficiencies found on its review of the submission.
NOTE: If you have submitted Form MU4 in another state, then you do not need to re-enter your record into NMLS. You will only need to identify the appropriate license in Maryland and complete a few state specific fields.
