TITLE 26
BANKS AND BANKING
CHAPTER 31
IDAHO RESIDENTIAL MORTGAGE PRACTICES ACT
PART 2.
PROVISIONS APPLICABLE TO MORTGAGE BROKERS AND MORTGAGE LENDERS
26-31-207.  REVOCATION OR SUSPENSION OF LICENSE. (1) If the department has reason to believe that grounds exist for revocation or suspension of a license issued pursuant to this part, the department may initiate a contested case against a mortgage broker or mortgage lender, and any partner, officer, director, manager, member, control person, employee or agent whose activities constitute the basis for revocation or suspension, in accordance with chapter 52, title 67, Idaho Code. The director may, after proceedings pursuant to chapter 52, title 67, Idaho Code, suspend the license for a period not to exceed six (6) months, or revoke the license, if he finds that:
(a)  The licensee or any partner, officer, director, manager, member, control person, employee or agent of the licensee has violated this chapter or any rule promulgated or order issued under this chapter and pertinent to this part; or
(b)  The licensee or any partner, officer, director, manager, member, control person, employee or agent of the licensee has violated any state or federal law, rule or regulation pertaining to mortgage brokering, mortgage lending, or mortgage loan origination activities; or
(c)  Facts or conditions exist which would clearly have justified the director in refusing to grant a license had these facts or conditions been known to exist at the time the license was issued; or
(d)  The licensee or any partner, officer, director, manager, member, control person, employee or agent of the licensee has been convicted of any felony, or of a misdemeanor involving any aspect of financial services, or a court has accepted a finding of guilt on the part of the licensee or partner, officer, director, manager, member, control person, employee or agent of the licensee, of any felony, or of a misdemeanor involving any aspect of financial services; or
(e)  The licensee or any partner, officer, director, manager, member, control person, employee or agent of the licensee has had a license to conduct financial services, including a license substantially equivalent to a license under this act, revoked or suspended by any government agency; or
(f)  The licensee has filed an application for a license which as of the date the license was issued, or as of the date of an order denying, suspending or revoking a license, was incomplete in any material respect or contained any statement that was, in light of the circumstances under which it was made, false or misleading with respect to any material fact; or
(g)  The mortgage broker or mortgage lender licensee has failed to notify the director of the employment or termination of, or the entering into or termination of a contractual relationship with, a licensed mortgage loan originator pursuant to section 26-31-208(2), Idaho Code; or
(h)  The mortgage broker or mortgage lender licensee has failed to supervise diligently and control the mortgage-related activities of a mortgage loan originator as defined in part 3 of this chapter and that is employed by the licensee; or
(i)  The mortgage broker or mortgage lender licensee has failed to designate a new qualified person in charge and notify the director of the same through the NMLSR within thirty (30) days following a change in the qualified person in charge; or
(j)  The licensee has failed to notify the director of the appointment or employment of a control person within thirty (30) days of such occurrence.
(2)  If the director finds that good cause exists for revocation of a license issued under this part, and that enforcement of this chapter and the public interest require immediate suspension of the license pending investigation, he may, after a hearing upon five (5) days’ written notice, enter an order suspending the license for not more than thirty (30) days.
(3)  Any mortgage broker or mortgage lender licensee may relinquish its license by notifying the department in writing of its relinquishment, but this relinquishment shall not affect its liability for acts previously committed, and may not occur after the filing of a complaint for revocation of the license.
(4)  The director may, in his discretion, reinstate a license issued under this part, terminate a suspension or grant a new license under this part to a person whose license issued under this part has been revoked or suspended, if no fact or condition then exists which clearly would justify the department in refusing to grant a license.
