****The North Carolina Office of the Commissioner of Banks is issuing a correction regarding timeline extensions for reporting. The MCR Q1 2020 and NCCOB Online Mortgage Data Upload reports are extended from May 15, 2020 to JUNE 14, 2020.***
The North Carolina Office of the Commissioner of Banks (NCCOB) recognizes the serious impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having on consumers and the operations of many licensees. To provide flexibility with administrative burdens, the NCCOB is extending the 2020 Q1 reporting deadlines for regulated mortgage entities that cannot meet the original deadlines for the following reports:
- MCR Q1 2020 report is extended from May 15, 2020 to June 14, 2020
- MCR Standard Financial Condition and Financial Statement deadlines are extended from 90 days from the end of the company’s fiscal year to 150 days from the end of the company’s fiscal year
- NCCOB Online Mortgage Data Upload is extended from May 15, 2020 to June 14, 2020
License items in the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System (NMLS) will be updated to reflect these extensions. The NCCOB encourages licensees to meet the reporting deadlines whenever possible.
Temporary Authority to Operate is part of a new section added to the federal SAFE Act by the passage of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act (12 USC § 5117). The new provision streamlines the license application process for federally registered mortgage loan originators (MLOs) seeking state licensure and state-licensed MLOs seeking licensure in another state. It will allow qualified MLOs who are changing employment temporary authority to originate loans while completing certain state-specific requirements. Temporary Authority to Operate takes effect November 24, 2019. With this change, North Carolina will continue to offer transitional MLO licenses in limited circumstances.
