Overview of the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System

NMLS is a secured, web-based system that will allow state licensees, companies, branches, and loan officers, to apply for, amend, update or renew licenses online in Iowa as well as in other participating states.

Each licensed company will have a single record in NMLS, regardless of the number of licenses they hold or the number of states in which they operate. Each licensed company will have access to their record in the system through a secure website, allowing them to conveniently view their license information, apply for new licenses, amend existing licenses, renew or surrender licenses throughout the year.

Licensees will have access to the system 362 days a year, 7 days a week with operational assistance available through a national call center.
