Residential Mortgage License

State application fee is one of the most expensive at almost $3,000. Net worth requirement differs for IL location vs out of state applicants. Requires audited financials to show net worth requirement of $150,000 minimum for mortgage brokers with Illinois offices, $150,000 minimum for mortgage brokers without Illinois offices. $100,000 minimum fidelity bond required without Illinois offices. The surety bond amount will be set based upon Illinois residential mortgage loans brokered, funded, originated, serviced or purchased, as the case may be, during the preceding calendar year.
