After working to prepare the Loan Estimate, how do I get a copy so I can use for reference?
Our Centralized Disclosure department is responsible for the administrative tasks of finalizing and communicating all Loan Estimates and other disclosures. As the RELO Agent, you work with your RELO Support Team to establish the terms of these disclosures. Each disclosure is provided to you to review and electronically sign (esign). This esign process includes a copy of the disclosures you can retain and access.
Can I be paid on FHA/VA if the sales contract is not in my name?
Unfortunately no. HUD has very broad licensing prohibitions against any type of Dual Employment in real estate related industries. Any mortgage loan originator with an active real estate license cannot be associated with FHA/VA/USDA loans. The prohibition is related to your Dual Employment, not whether you are a party to the real estate transaction. Additional information can be found at 4000.1: FHA Single Family Housing Policy Handbook, Section I. A. 3.c.iv.3.(iv), (v), and (vii).
Can I send out Disclosures?
There are many compliance and technical issues with loan disclosures. We use a Centralized Disclosure department to send out all loan disclosures. You and your RELO Loan Team establish the loan and disclosure terms. The administrative tasks of finalizing and communicating those disclosures is handled by the Centralized Disclosure department.

Can I receive a copy of the disclosures to go over with my client?
The short answer is yes. If you are reviewing loan terms prior to loan disclosure, we use non-disclosure loan summary documents. These documents contain the important loan information. If you are reviewing with Client after the disclosures have been formally communicated, then you will already have received the disclosures and can review with your client.
If I get licensed today, do I still have to renew in December?
If you get licensed in September, you will also renew your license in December.
Can I get paid on a Loan Officer in my downline if they don’t have a real estate license:
No, you can only be paid on a RELO agent in your downline who was the agent and the loan officer on the transaction. If you recruit a loan officer and they close a loan with an agent that is not in RELO it does not count for your downline.
Can I get paid 50 basis points on anyone who uses my link?
YES! Except FHA/VA/USDA get all your realtor friends to use your link and you will be paid the 50bps.
Do I have to gather all the documentation from the clients?

It is most common for the RELO Agent to obtain core, critical documents and then the RELO Support Staff obtain ancillary and updated documents.
