Who is required to have this license?
Chapter 645B.0125 (1) of the Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) defines a “mortgage agent” as a natural person, including the designated qualified employee, who is authorized by the mortgage broker or mortgage banker to conduct any activity on behalf of the company that would trigger licensure as a mortgage broker or mortgage banker. Persons conducting these activities are required to be associate with or employees of the mortgage broker or mortgage banker.
For employees of mortgage brokers, these activities include a person who:
- Holds himself or herself out for hire to serve as an agent for any person in an attempt to obtain a loan which will be secured by a lien on real property;
- Holds himself or herself out for hire to serve as an agent for any person who has money to lend, if the loan is or will be secured by a lien on real property;
- Holds himself or herself out as being able to make loans secured by liens on real property;
- Holds himself or herself out as being able to buy or sell notes secured by liens on real property; or
- Offers for sale in Nevada any security which is exempt from registration under state or federal law and purports to make investments in promissory notes secured by liens on real property.
For employees of mortgage bankers, these activities include a person who:
- Holds himself or herself out as being able to make loans secured by liens on real property using his or her own money;
- Holds himself or herself out as being able to buy or sell notes secured by liens on real property; or
- Negotiates, originates or makes, or offers to negotiate, originate or make, commercial mortgage loans as an agent for or on behalf of an institutional investor.
Additionally, the term “mortgage agent’ includes a residential mortgage loan originator. A residential mortgage loan originator is any natural person who takes a residential mortgage loan application or offers or negotiates terms of a residential mortgage loan for compensation or other pecuniary gain. “Residential mortgage loan” means any loan primarily for personal, family or household use that is secured by a mortgage, deed of trust or other equivalent consensual security interest on a dwelling, as defined in the federal Truth in Lending Act, or residential real estate upon which is constructed or intended to be constructed a dwelling, including a mobile home.
The term further requires a mortgage broker or mortgage banker, licensed as a sole proprietorship, who conducts residential mortgage loan origination activities to be licensed as a mortgage agent.
Regulations further require the qualified employee of either a mortgage broker or mortgage banker to be licensed as a mortgage agent.
Who does not need this license?
The term “mortgage agent’ does not include a person who:
- Is an owner, general partner, officer or director of a mortgage broker or mortgage banker, unless the person is conducting licensable activity on behalf of the company in Nevada, or serves as the designated qualified employee;
- Performs only clerical or ministerial tasks for a mortgage broker or mortgage banker;
- Collects payments and performs related services, including, without limitation, the modification of an existing loan, in connection with a loan secured by a lien on real property (Conducting third party loan modification for compensation is subject to licensing pursuant to NRS chapter 645F);
- Only performs clerical or support loan processing or underwriter duties as an employee of the company and operates at the direction of and subject to the supervision and instruction of a licensed person; or
- Only performs real estate brokerage activities and is licensed or registered in accordance with Nevada law, unless the person or entity is compensated by a lender, a mortgage broker, a mortgage banker or other residential mortgage loan originator or by any agent of such lender, mortgage broker, a mortgage banker or other residential mortgage loan originator.
NRS 645B.015 and NRS 645E.150 list other persons exempt from licensing under these chapters.
