Licensing

The Montana mortgage lender, broker, and servicer licenses are for any companies who regularly engage in the business of residential mortgage lenders, brokers, or servicers with Montana consumers, unless exempt under 32-9-104. These licenses are separate - each license is needed to engage in each activity, e.g. a lender license does not cover brokering. 

The Montana Division of Banking and Financial Institutions (Division) does all of its licensing through the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS).

For instructions on how to use NMLS please go to the following links on the NMLS website:
