WHEREAS, the Banking Commissioner (“Commissioner”) is charged with the administration of Part I of Chapter 668, Sections 36a-485 to 36a-534b, inclusive, of the Connecticut General Statutes, “Mortgage Lenders, Correspondent Lenders, Brokers and Loan Originators”;
WHEREAS, Servion is a Minnesota corporation that is currently licensed as a mortgage lender under Part I of Chapter 668, Sections 36a-485 et seq., of the Connecticut General Statutes;
WHEREAS, Section 36a-490(b) of the Connecticut General Statutes, as amended by Public Act 17-38, requires that a mortgage lender licensee file with the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System and Registry (“NMLS”) a change of its name at least thirty (30) calendar days prior to such change, and provide directly to the Commissioner a bond rider or endorsement, or addendum, as applicable, to the surety bond on file with the Commissioner that reflects the new name;
WHEREAS, Servion failed to file with NMLS a change of its name at least thirty (30) calendar days prior to such change and failed to provide a bond rider or endorsement, or addendum, as applicable, to the surety bond on file with the Commissioner;
WHEREAS, the Commissioner believes that such allegation would support initiation of proceedings against Servion, which proceedings would constitute a “contested case” within the meaning of Section 4-166(4) of the Connecticut General Statutes. Section 4-177(c) of the Connecticut General Statutes and Section 36a-1-55(a) of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies provide that a contested case may be resolved by consent order, unless precluded by law;

WHEREAS, Servion acknowledges that this Consent Order is a public record and is a reportable event for purposes of NMLS, as applicable;
AND WHEREAS, Servion herein represents to the Commissioner that it has reviewed and updated its internal policies, procedures and controls to ensure that Servion will file any change it makes to its name or any address of any office specified on its most recent filing with NMLS at least thirty (30) calendar days prior to such change and, in connection with such change, Servion will provide directly to the Commissioner a bond rider or endorsement, or addendum, as applicable, to the surety bond on file with the Commissioner that reflects such change.

NOW THEREFORE, the Commissioner enters the following:
|The Sanction set forth above be and is hereby entered;
|Upon issuance of this Consent Order by the Commissioner, this matter will be resolved and the Commissioner will not take any future enforcement action against Servion based upon the allegation contained herein; provided that issuance of this Consent Order is without prejudice to the right of the Commissioner to take enforcement action against Servion based upon a violation of this Consent Order or the matters underlying its entry, if the Commissioner determines that compliance with the terms herein is not being observed or if any representation made by Servion and reflected herein is subsequently discovered to be untrue;
|Servion shall not take any action or make or permit any public statement, including in regulatory filings or otherwise, denying, directly or indirectly, any allegation referenced in this Consent Order or create the impression that this Consent Order is without factual basis;
|Subject to the foregoing, and so long as this Consent Order is promptly disclosed by Servion and its control persons, as applicable, on NMLS, nothing in the issuance of this Consent Order shall adversely affect the ability of Servion 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, provided all applicable legal requirements for such license are satisfied and the terms of this Consent Order are followed; and
|This Consent Order shall become final when issued.
