Can I look Up My Mortgage Broker?

Apparently you can now.  “By clicking onto NMLS Consumer Access, borrowers have entry to a single source of information, updated nightly, that tells them whether the loan officer or broker with whom they are working is licensed, the company he or she is licensed with, the branch where the originator works and his employment history going back 10 years.” 

Florida is on the list yet but here is what they said.  “Currently, 31 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico are on the NMLS, Twelve more started “transitioning” onto the system earlier this month, leaving just seven more to go. And those seven — Florida, Hawaii, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada and Texas — have all indicated their intention to meet the federally mandated July 31 deadline.”
