Idaho regulator provides updates on agency operations
On March 26, the Idaho Department of Finance Consumer Finance Bureau (Department) issued updated guidance to its registrants and licensees regarding the Department’s current operations during the Covid-19 outbreak. In particular, the Department noted that though the offices will be closed to the public for the next 21 days, staff are continuing to process licensing and registration applications. The Department suggested that companies may choose to transition their license records to the NMLS to avoid delays. In addition, the Department noted that field examinations continue remotely, using phone and email in lieu of onsite reviews. Finally, the Department indicated deadlines were extended for mortgage companies to file mortgage call reports and financial statements, and that deadlines will be reviewed for required license renewals and reports as needed.
