A mortgage loan originator is an individual who, for compensation or gain, or in the expectation of compensation or gain, takes a residential mortgage loan application or offers or negotiates terms of a residential mortgage loan. A residential mortgage loan means any loan primarily for personal, family or household use that is secured by a mortgage, deed of trust, or other equivalent consensual security interest on a dwelling which contains 1 to 4 residential units. Dwelling includes an individual condominium unit, cooperative unit, mobile home and trailer if it is used as a residence.

Loans are subject to credit and collateral approval. Advertised rates are based on a set of loan assumptions including a borrower with excellent credit history and optimal loan characteristics. Your final interest rate and annual percentage rate (APR) may differ depending on your individual transaction’s specific characteristics, and certain products may not be available for your situation. Several determining factors include, but are not limited to, the state of the property location, loan amount, documentation type, loan type, occupancy type, property type, loan to value, and credit score.
APR reflects the cost of credit over the term of the loan expressed as an annual rate. For mortgage loans, APR may include the interest rate, discount points (also referred to as “points”), and other charges or fees (such as mortgage insurance and origination fees), but does not necessarily take into account other loan-specific finance charges you may be required to pay.
