Senate Bill 98, passed by the 2017 Oregon Legislature and effective Jan. 1, 2018, requires companies to get a license from the Division of Financial Regulation in order to service Oregon residential mortgage loans. This license is separate from the license to originate mortgage loans. Effective Jan. 1, 2018, a company that both originates and services mortgage loans must have both a mortgage lender license and a mortgage servicer license.
The division is working on rulemaking to implement the new licensing and regulation program. We issued temporary rules to accept applications and issue licenses on Jan. 1, 2018.
