Procedures where assets or capital of mortgage banker or mortgage broker found impaired
  • involuntary liquidation

(1) When the Director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services ascertains that the assets or capital of any mortgage banker or mortgage broker is impaired, or that the mortgage bankers or mortgage brokers affairs are in an unsound condition, the director may take possession of all the property, business and assets of the mortgage banker or mortgage broker located in this state and retain possession of them pending the further proceedings specified in this section. The director shall inventory the assets and liabilities of the mortgage banker or mortgage broker. The director shall file one copy of the inventory in the office of the director and one copy in the office of the clerk of the circuit court of the county in which the principal place of business of the mortgage banker or mortgage broker is located, and shall mail one copy to each shareholder or partner of the mortgage banker or mortgage broker at the last-known address of the shareholder or partner. The clerk of the court shall file the inventory as a pending proceeding and give it a case number.

(2) If any mortgage banker or mortgage broker refuses to permit the director to take possession under this section, the director may apply to the circuit court of the county in which the principal place of business of the mortgage banker or mortgage broker is located for an order appointing a receiver, who may be the director, to take possession.

(3) If the deficiency in assets or capital has not been made good or the unsound condition remedied within 60 days from the date when the director or receiver took possession, the property, business and assets of the mortgage banker or mortgage broker located in this state shall be liquidated. If a receiver has not been appointed, the director shall apply for such appointment by the court in which the inventory was filed. The liquidation shall proceed as provided by law for liquidation of a private corporation in receivership.

(4) The expenses of the receiver and compensation of counsel, as well as all expenditures required in the liquidation proceedings, shall be fixed by the director, subject to the approval of the court, and, upon certification by the director, shall be paid out of the funds in the hands of the director as such receiver.
