What is a Mortgage Loan Originator/Officer?

Ohio Laws and Administrative Rules have outlined the definition of a Mortgage Loan Originator in Section 1322.01:

(AA)(1) "Mortgage Loan Originator" means an individual who for compensation or gain, or in the expectation of compensation or gain, does any of the following:

  • Takes a residential mortgage loan application;
  • Assists or offers to assist a buyer in obtaining or applying to obtain a residential mortgage loan by, among other things, advising on loan terms, including rates, fees, and other costs;
  • Offers or negotiates terms of a residential mortgage loan;
  • Issues or offers to issue a commitment for a residential mortgage loan to a buyer.
