Mortgage Bankers - NRS 645E

Who is required to be licensed as a Mortgage Banker under NRS 645E?

Any person who wishes to engage in any activity meeting the statutory definition of “mortgage banker” with respect to residential or commercial property is required to first obtain a license as a mortgage banker under NRS 645E, unless the person is exempt from licensure under NRS 645E.150 and holds a certificate of exemption under NRS 645E.160. For additional information concerning exemptions and obtaining a certificate of exemption, see Exemptions.

    How to Obtain or Renew a License

    Residential Mortgage Bankers

    All initial license and renewal applications and applicable fees for residential mortgage bankers are submitted to the Division through the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System and Registry (“NMLS”) using the Company Form (MU-1 Form) for the principal office and the Branch Form (MU-3 Form) for each branch location. Nevada law requires each licensed mortgage banker to have at least one licensed office located in this state. 
    Additional Information concerning the requirements to obtain a residential mortgage banker license and application materials may be obtained by viewing the Banker License Description in NMLS.

    Additional Information: 

    Commercial Mortgage Bankers

    A mortgage banker that only conducts commercial mortgage activity (loans secured by real property other than a dwelling) may submit its application for licensure or renewal and applicable fees directly to the Division. The application and further instruction may be obtained by contacting the Division.

      Once You Have Obtained a License

      A banker is required to submit a Monthly Activity Report (MAR) of the banker's activity on a form approved by the Commissioner.  The Division has provided the report form and instructions for completing the form.
