|3.||So long as this Consent Order is promptly disclosed by Mortgage Solutions and its control persons, as applicable, on NMLS, nothing in the issuance of this Consent Order shall adversely affect the ability of Mortgage Solutions to apply for or obtain licenses or renewal licenses under Part I of Chapter 668, Sections 36a-485 et seq., of the Connecticut General Statutes, and for its mortgage loan originators to apply for or obtain licensure from the Commissioner, provided all applicable legal requirements for such license are satisfied; and|
