  • Once you pass your federal NMLS exam can now apply for your individual NMLS state licenses.
  • Each state has its own licensing requirements and the costs and fees depends on each individual state.
  • Each candidate applying for an individual mortgage license for a particular state needs to go through a background criminal investigation as well as credit check and financial background investigations. 
  • No felony conviction in the past 7 years.
  • Any criminal convictions involving fraud and/or theft will be reasons for denial of a mortgage loan originator’s license.
  • Many think that just because they have bad credit that they will not be able to get a NMLS mortgage loan originator’s license.
  • This is not the case. Each state have their own standards on an applicant’s credit requirement.
