Alaska’s surety bond requirement for a mortgage broker license is $75,000, but our surety bond authority charges only a fraction of that. The percentage that you pay is determined by your credit score and other financial and business records. Well-qualified applicants may qualify for mortgage broker bonds in Alaska for just $750 (1 percent of the bond total).
With The ProSure Group, having bad credit or other not-so-attractive details in your financial history isn’t a deal-breaker for obtaining a surety bond. Our bad-credit program makes it so that practically everyone can be approved. And if your credit improves in the future, once you’ve had success as a mortgage broker, you can reapply for a lower rate when the bond comes up for renewal.
All mortgage broker, lender, and originator licensing activities, including the submission of surety bonds and bond renewals, are handled electronically through the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System & Registry (NMLS). Our services are integrated with the NMLS system, and we offer electronic surety bonds to streamline the application process. Our team can walk you step-by-step through the NMLS system, including explaining the Documents Upload section where the surety bonds are submitted. Bonds need to be renewed and resubmitted, along with other licensure documents, before the first day of each year to avoid the cancellation of your mortgage broker license.
Alaska mortgage broker licenses are regulated through the Division of Banking and Securities in the Department of Commerce, Community & Economic Development. Here, resources can be found for current licensees as well as those wondering how to become a mortgage broker in Alaska. For a technical read on the state’s mortgage broker laws, the statutory language is laid out in the Alaska Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act of 2010, or the Alaska SAFE Act 2010 for short. The NMLS offers more non-technical, reader-friendly information about state licensing requirements. And when you apply for an Alaska mortgage broker surety bond, our surety experts can also answer your questions.
Additionally, anyone seeking a mortgage broker and lender license in Alaska must first possess a business license. Depending on the type of business license, an additional surety bond may be required. Whether you need a business or any other professional license, feel free to ask our surety experts about your bond obligations.
