State Law Update: Idaho Amends Mortgage Licensing Provisions


On March 13, Idaho enacted HB 10, a bill to amend the licensing provisions of the Idaho Residential Mortgage Practices Act. The bill (i) provides a license exemption for individuals who originate mortgages on behalf of federal, state, or local government housing agencies, (ii) removes language inconsistent with federal interpretation of the SAFE Act relating to an exclusion from the definition of “mortgage loan originator,” and (iii) makes it a prohibited practice for a person to violate license-related testing or education procedures. The bill also authorizes the director to subpoena records related to unlicensed activity by any person and also clarifies licensing exemptions for Idaho attorneys and accountants. By state rule, the law is set to take effect on July 1, 2013.
