Chapter 1: Becoming an MLO

In this chapter, we will start our journey to becoming an MLO. Before we can tackle the ins and outs of the products, programs, and process, we need to understand what an MLO is, what other players exist in the industry, and how to even become an MLO. This chapter sets the foundation for students to successfully complete the licensing process and understand the required license maintenance practices.

Chapter 2: Learning the Products and the Programs

Now that students know what an MLO is and what their responsibilities are, we will move on to learning about the products and programs under various government and government-sponsored agencies. We will begin with a conversation about the types of products that an MLO might be able to offer a borrower like fixed-rate, adjustable-rate, and various other types of loans. We will then transition into the programs under Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the FHA, VA, and USDA. We will end our conversation discussing nontraditional mortgage products like subprime and non-QM loans.

Chapter 3: Introduction to Federal Law

In this chapter, we are going to dive headfirst into federal law. This chapter will give students a foundational understanding of every federal law that dictates the practices of the mortgage industry. We will look at each of these laws individually in preparation for putting them in context throughout the process in the remaining chapters.

Chapter 4: Processing and Underwriting

Moving forward from the foundation of federal law, we will dive headfirst into the mortgage origination process. We begin our conversation at the beginning with the initial interview, advertising, and the initial application. We will break down the 1003, the initial Loan Estimate and all the initial disclosures. We will end our conversation discussing qualifications of the borrower from income to assets, to the credit report.

Chapter 5: Closing and Funding

Chapter 5 will with analyzing the mortgage, the appraisal and funding and then what happens at closing. We will talk about funding and closing and what can happen even after the loan closes. We will discuss in depth the Closing Disclosure, the right of rescission, settlement and closing agents, and escrow accounts, and an explanation of documents. The chapter will also discuss foreclosures and transfer of servicing, all of which happen after the loan has closed. This chapter will end with a thorough review of all math equations that have been discussed throughout the first 5 chapters of this course.

By the end of this chapter, students should have a good grasp of what they should avoid as they enter their new careers.
