How to Apply:

If you wish to apply for a lead generator license you should begin by first reviewing Connecticut’s Jurisdiction-Specific Requirements along with Connecticut's mortgage licensing statutes, which provides the current licensing procedures and requirements applicable to lead generators.

If your company already has a completed record in the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System and Registry, then applying for a license in Connecticut merely involves filing your company's record (Form MU1) and control person records (Form MU2) with Connecticut through the NMLS and mailing in the jurisdiction-specific requirements to the Department.
