Is it necessary to license an office that is only providing underwriting and other back-office services?

A location that is solely providing loan processing or underwriting or other back-office services on Washington loans and has only incidental contact with the borrower after an application has been taken, is not required to be licensed. Back office services do not include loan servicing. However, any location where a licensed mortgage loan originator works must be licensed. Also, your company's main office (headquarters), wherever located, must be licensed.
