Mortgage Company Applications and Resources



File a new application through the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS):

Applications for a new mortgage broker/processor or lender license/registration must be made through the NMLS. The Department will review and approve or deny your Georgia application through the NMLS. 

As of 9/12/2016, criminal history background checks on MU2 individuals should be authorized and submitted through the NMLS. Instructions and checklists are available through the NMLS website. Review of law enforcement agency information may extend processing time up to 10 weeks. Please allow for this processing time when you submit your application through the NMLS.

NOTE: If you are applying for a NEW branch physically located in Georgia, or are changing the branch manager along with the change in address for the branch, a separate application for approval must be made for that new branch location and/or new branch manager.  Such applications must be made through the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System (NMLS)

Please DO NOT enter branches that are not physically located within the State of Georgia into the NMLS.  Out-of-state branches do not require the Department’s approval and SHOULD NOT be entered into NMLS.
