NMLS Electronic Surety Bond

Electronic Surety Bonds in General

An electronic surety bond replaces traditional bonds that are printed, signed and usually sealed by the issuing surety. The transition to various surety bond formats has occurred rather slowly and intermittently across different areas. Eventually most if not all surety bonds will be issued electronically.

What is an NMLS Electronic Surety Bond?

Initially, NMLS Electronic Surety Bonds, were associated with only Mortgage Broker Bonds and other mortgage related bonds. Many different entities require bonds including state and local governments and many other various regulatory entities. As more obligees that require bonds began to use the existing NMLS platform to facilitate electronic surety bonds, NMLS started to expand services. In the future more obligees will utilize NMLS Electronic Surety Bonds as their primary bond management tool.
