Can prior life events prevent me from getting my Mortgage Loan Originator license?

While every state has its own set of rules and regulations regarding MLO licenses, certain factors can negatively impact your eligibility. You will be required to disclose all criminal history, including misdemeanors and felonies. Additionally, any financial crimes such as fraud or embezzlement might make you ineligible for MLO licensing. Other red flags that might cause problems include previous bankruptcies, foreclosures, or delinquent child support payments. However, each state's regulatory agency evaluates applications on a case-by-case basis and considers mitigating circumstances when making decisions about MLO and NMLS licensure.
