Provide homebuyers with information concerning the companies and professionals in the mortgage industry.
In order to provide homebuyers and the general public with greater information concerning the companies and professionals in the mortgage industry and in fulfillment of the federal S.A.F.E. Mortgage Licensing Act of 2008, the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System & Registry (NMLS) hosts a web site called NMLS Consumer Access. NMLS Consumer Access is a fully searchable web site that allows the public to view information concerning state-licensed companies, branches, and individuals licensed and registered through NMLS.
One of the objectives of the system is that residential mortgage originators are required to act in the best interests of the consumer to the greatest extent possible.
