How can an RMLO help your owner finance business?

RMLO services support investors and owner finance buyers, ensuring compliance with state and federal regulations. Services include: taking the loan application, verifying the buyer's ability to repay, and distributing the mandatory loan disclosures to your buyer. We support investors and owner finance buyers and want to help you close quickly and efficiently.


Your professional loan package includes:

Qualified Mortgage Report

Current Dodd-Frank regulations offer certain protections to lenders who create loans that are considered qualified mortgages. Let our company determine your loan's standing and offer advice to adjust your loan if necessary to be covered with optimal protections.

Credit Report

Smart lenders don't skip credit checks. Avoid potential risks by having your buyers credit examined to determine creditworthiness and risk to the life of your note. A mature note is more valuable and more marketable.

Proof of Income

Investors are required by the Dodd-Frank Act to determine a buyers ability to repay a loan based on industry standard guidelines. Let our company track down W-2s, bank statements, and other income verification to keep you in compliance with the law.

Required Loan Disclosures

Federal and state regulations require specific loan disclosures delivered to your buyer within strict time frames. These disclosures are vital to compliance with regulations and must be included. Let us keep track of the disclosures for you.

Supporting Underwriting Documentation

Receive documentation of the loan terms, fully amortized loan schedule, and important loan information in a professional and organized package for you to hold in your note portfolio.

Closing Disclosure

An important final piece, an accurate closing disclosure means a quick closing with all the small details put together in one neat and organized document. We promise to close quickly with accurate CDs and no unnecessary hang ups.
