Idaho State Licenses and Regulator Costs

Idaho is one of the most exacting (and friendly) regulators in the nation and will review your entire NMLS account (including documents and filings for other states) for accuracy and conformity with NMLS best practices. We highly recommend working with a Lynx Licensing expert for Idaho filings, even if you normally handle licensing in-house. Contact us for expert assistance.

Mortgage Broker/Lender License (Company)

  • NMLS Cost: $700

  • Additional Costs: $15 per credit report, $36.25 per criminal background check

  • Allow additional time for Idaho licensing; the department is under heavy workload

  • Qualifying Individual: required for each location; must be an Idaho-licensed mortgage loan originator, must provide a detailed resume evidencing three (3) years of mortgage industry experience (contact us for assistance, the resume requirements are stringent)

  • Credit history: credit issues for a control person require a detailed line by line explanation; if you've already provided an explanation for another jurisdiction, Idaho will require you to change it to conform to their requirements (contact us for help)
