Application Forms - Mortgage Loan Originators

Unless exempt from licensing, no individual shall engage in the business of a mortgage loan originator (MLO), unless such individual has first obtained a license under Chapter 17 of Title 6.2 of the Code of Virginia. For licensing exemptions and information about licensing, including FAQs, we strongly recommend that you review the information available from our site.

Chapter 17 requires the filing of an application for a mortgage loan originator (MLO) license through the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS). The MLO application form is referred to as Form MU4. The MU4 application and the Virginia MLO application checklist with the required forms can be accessed on the NMLS website through the link below. The Virginia requirements must be submitted to the Bureau at the time the MU4 is electronically filed.

Links to related laws and regulations appear below. Code and Regulation Sections can be viewed and downloaded individually or a report of multiple Sections can be created and downloaded. To download multiple Sections click on "create report" at the beginning of the table of contents for the specific Chapter and enter the beginning and ending Section of the sequence you wish to download. It is your responsibility to read and comply with all applicable laws and regulations.
