In Vermont any company or person who engages in the business of making loans of money, credit, goods, or things in action and charges, contracts for or receives on any such loan interest, a finance charge, discount, or consideration must provide a Vermont licensed lender bond and be appropriately licensed by the state. Every applicant, whether located in Vermont or not, desiring to engage in the business of making loans in Vermont must obtain a separate license for EACH office and provide the corresponding Vermont licensed lender surety bond. A licensed lender may process his or her license through the National Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS). The bond must be written in varying amounts based on volume: for who annually originate $0.00 to $1,000,000.00 in loans, a surety bond not less than $50,000.00; for those who annually originate $1,000,000.01 to $15,000,000.00 in loans, a surety bond not less than $100,000.00; and, for those who annually originate $15,000,000.01 or more in loans, a surety bond not less than $150,000.00.
