TX-SML MLO License Overview

There are two types of MLO licenses in Texas: TX-SML and TX-OCCC.

According to the NMLS, individuals who take a residential mortgage loan application or who offer or negotiate the terms of a residential mortgage loan for compensation or gain are required to have a TX MLO license. A TX-SML MLO license focuses on primary residential mortgage loans.

If you are unsure of which MLO license you need, get your license from whichever agency your current or future employer operates in.
