Mortgage Broker/Lender Licensing

Under the Georgia Residential Mortgage Act (“GRMA”), this Department licenses lenders and brokers who make or broker mortgage loans secured by Georgia real estate, which is the borrower’s primary residence. 

The Department uses the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System (NMLS) to manage its Mortgage and Money Service Business (MSB) licensees.

To see outstanding Administrative Actions on both licensed and unlicensed entities (including ineligible for hire information), you must conduct a search of the licensed or unlicensed entity via the NMLS Consumer Access  portal.  Information related to final orders is available under the Regulatory Actions section of the entity’s NMLS Consumer Access record.
