The SAFE Act requires residential mortgage loan originators who are employees of agency-regulated institutions to be registered with the NMLS Registry. The law generally prohibits employees of agency-regulated institutions from originating residential mortgage loans unless they register with the registry.
All institutions managing registered mortgage loan originators (MLOs) are required to renew their NMLS records each year. Registrations not renewed before year-end must be reactivated in order to be in an active status on the NMLS system.
The NMLS Annual Renewal Period begins Nov. 1 and ends Dec. 31 each year. According to federal regulations, both institutions and most individual MLOs must be renewed through NMLS annually.
If the renewal process is not completed prior to Dec. 31st, the MLO will have an "inactive" registration status both in NMLS and on NMLS Consumer Access. Inactive registrations must be reactivated in order to have an "active" registration status.
