Re: Denial of Mortgage Loan Originator License
Dear Mr. Brochu:
On June 23, 2009, you filed a Form MU4, “Uniform Individual Mortgage License/Registration & Consent Form” (“Form MU4”), with the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System seeking to obtain a mortgage loan originator license in Connecticut.  Your sponsoring company is Generation Mortgage, LLC which is currently licensed as a mortgage broker under Part I of Chapter 668 of the Connecticut General Statutes, “Mortgage Lenders, Correspondent Lenders, Brokers and Loan Originators”.  Pursuant to Section 36a-489 of the Connecticut General Statutes, as amended by Public Acts 09-207, 09-208 and 09-209, I hereby deny the license for the reasons set forth below.
Section 36a-489(b)(1) of the Connecticut General Statutes, as amended, prohibits me from issuing an initial license for a mortgage loan originator unless I find at a minimum, among other things, that the applicant has “(B) notwithstanding the provisions of section 46a-80, . . . not been convicted of, or pled guilty or nolo contendere to, a felony in a domestic, foreign or military court during the seven-year period preceding the date of the application for licensing or at any time preceding such date of application if such felony involved an act of fraud, dishonesty, a breach of trust, or money laundering, provided any pardon of a conviction shall not be a conviction for purposes of this subdivision.”  If I deny the license, I must notify the applicant and may notify the sponsor of the denial and the reasons for such denial.
Pursuant to the authority granted to me by Section 36a-17 of the Connecticut General Statutes, I have reviewed your criminal history record in Connecticut, which disclosed that in 2000, you were convicted of Burglary 2 (a class C felony) and Larceny 3 (a class D felony).  Because these felonies involve acts of dishonesty, I am prohibited by law from issuing you a mortgage loan originator license.
For the reasons stated above, I am unable to issue you a mortgage loan originator license.
Very truly yours,
Howard F. Pitkin
