Mortgage Lending

 

The mortgage lenders, brokers, and servicers list no longer includes most mortgage brokers and lenders doing business in Utah.   The Utah Division of Real Estate is now the primary regulator of residential first mortgage lenders and brokers.   You may wish to check their web site for mortgage lenders and brokers not listed herein.

This list does include the servicers of mortgage loans, and lenders and brokers who are also depository institutions or their affiliates.

There are approximately 188 residential mortgage lenders, brokers, and servicers who have notified the department they are conducting business in Utah.

The "Browse List" link presents an alphabetical listing of those mortgage lenders and servicers as of March 19, 2014.  We have also included an option for you to download the complete list in various formats.  This list will be updated as needed.

If you desire to conduct mortgage lending, brokering, or servicing activities with Utah consumers, please note.  Due to changes in Utah law, most first mortgage brokers and lenders are now under the jurisdiction of the Utah Department of Commerce, Division of Real Estate.  Those still subject to the jurisdiction of Financial Institutions are:

  • 1) 2nd Mortgage lenders (see Consumer Lending).
  • 2) 1st Mortgage Servicers.
  • 3) Depositories or affiliates thereof engaging in 1st Mortgage Brokering and/or Lending.
