Tampa Mortgage Loan Originator Lawyer
Mortgage loan originators (in the simplest terms) can be thought of as the original mortgage lender that works with the mortgagee in order to complete a mortgage transaction. Because a home is such a large investment for many individuals, the Florida Office of Financial Regulation requires all mortgage originators to meet certain requirements and be licensed by the Office prior to conducting business or any mortgage transaction with a consumer. In a significant number of cases, mortgage loan originators are able to complete the initial licensing process as well as the renewal process without issue and without any additional assistance. However, when the Office declines an application for a license or refuses to renew an originator’s license, the originator may need an experienced and knowledgeable Tampa mortgage loan originators lawyer. The Law Offices of David P. Rankin, P.A. can provide such counsel and help beleaguered originators.
Why Mortgage Loan Originator Problems Arise in Tampa
While there may be an infinite number of situations and circumstances under which a Florida mortgage loan originator’s license is not granted or renewed, any time the Office takes such an action it is usually because the agency feels the originator has not demonstrated that they possess the knowledge or experience necessary to comply with the Florida statutes and regulations applicable to mortgage loan originators’ activities and business. Therefore, a mortgage loan originator may run into issues in obtaining or renewing a license if the originator:
- Does not meet the minimum qualifications and requirements to have a license issued;
- Fails to satisfactorily demonstrate that it meets the requirements to have its license renewed;
- Is accused by consumers or others of engaging in unprofessional, unethical, and/or illegal activity.
The reason for the licensing issue’s development will dictate the response and strategy utilized by the Law Offices of David P. Rankin, P.A. – your Tampa professional licensing law firm – to resolve the matter. Where the matter involves either the absence of documentation or questions about the sufficiency of documentation used to establish the mortgage loan originator’s qualifications, informal resolution of the licensing dispute may be all that is needed. However, where the licensing issue is due to allegations of misconduct or criminal activity, more formal and forceful resolution strategies may be needed – not only to resolve the issue itself but also to protect the mortgage loan originator’s good name.
