Lyrics and Music by Ryan Hartwig
Wanna to be an MLO, take the state exam
Wanna pass the test, study this jam.
10% of interest, is the legal rate
no prepayment penalties if you just can’t wait.
AZdfi punto gov
is the state’s website you’ll come to love
The superintendent is the man,
he’s appointed every 4, and audits every 5.[audits financial institutions annually, banks every two, and brokers and bankers every 5]
Some basic definitions, are very good to know
investor, commercial property, closing and escrow.[closing is when all the docs are executed and recorded]
Escrow records the deal, then the deal is closed.
An investor means a person, or company purchasing.
Commercial land consists, of more than 4 families,
And the commercial banker is okay without licensing.
What goes on your business card,
Along with those balloons,
Company name license, NMLS too.
You also need these three, for any kind of sign,
blog twitter facebook, just look online.
Talks about your license, and when you don’t need one
If it’s your own house, or for family,
commercial mortgage banker(small pause), or their employee
Receives deeds of trust, or ancillary lawyer.
manufactured homes, and loss mitigation.
Half of the test, is on the prohibitions,
Not the prohibition or the wine in your kitchen.
Don’t work or advertise, for yourself
get paid without a license
or give loans less than minimum [10k min for banker, 5k min for broker]
Don’t hand out a loan, not secured by deed
Unless your employer is indeed the lender.
You can’t work two jobs, and you can’t be the agent,
unless you tell the customer upfront like it is.
Can’t disburse the green stuff, can’t commit fraud, can’t make the max insurance more than the cost.
Have to be employed, can’t knowingly withhold, info from the auditor, when he’s told.
If, you’re the processor or you underwrite, you can’t publicize, loan origination.
What’s prohibited, for a banker/broker
Let’s start with servicíng, can’t mix PI TI [appraisal fees and credit report fees go in one account, application fees are separate]
No blank spaces, if you know what I mean
Can’t keep from, shopping around
If the loan is under, 200 thou
Can’t delay the loan, to increase the cost
or your precious license, will soon be lost.
What about them records, piled in a heap
Bankers for 2 years, brokers 5 years keep.
What to tell the client, when it comes to fees,
app fee, appraisal, credit then you’re done.
Feds are always watching so be sure and tell all three.
4 types of encúmbrances for your deed.
Easement, deed restriction, encroachment, and lien.
Mortgages specific, and voluntary.
Lots of traps to fall in, better to be wary.
The last few facts, about Arizona
Lien theory state, not toyota tacoma.
Property tax is due, in October and March.
But if late you pay,
In November and May.
Wanna pass the test, study this rap,
use it all the time, like a google app.
