Mortgage Broker Renewal Process
The annual renewal period for licensed Mortgage Brokers, Commercial Mortgage Brokers, Mortgage Bankers and Commercial Mortgage Bankers is approaching. All Arizona licensed Mortgage Brokers, Commercial Mortgage Brokers, Mortgage Bankers and Commercial Mortgage Bankers in any of the following statuses: Approved, Approved-Deficient, Approved-Inactive or Suspended, must request renewal through NMLS.
The renewal period is from 11/01/2021 through 12/31/2021. On 01/01/2022, any licensed Mortgage Broker, Commercial Mortgage Broker, Mortgage Banker and Commercial Mortgage Banker who did not request renewal and provide the required fees and documents, will have their status changed to Suspended. In a Suspended status you can not transact business in Arizona and none of your licensed Loan Originators may originate loans. On 02/01/2022, your license will expire if a Suspended loan originator did not request renewal and provide the required fees and documents. If your license is expired, you will have to apply for a new license in order to transact business in Arizona.
