The Nevada Collection Agency Bond is a type of surety bond, required to obtain a license as a collection agency in Nevada. While the license and surety bond are required by the Nevada Financial Institutions Division, the license application and management is performed via the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS). A collection agency license is required for any person or company that intends to operate a collection agency in Nevada or engage in the business of collecting claims for others or solicit the right to collect or receive payment for another of any claim, or advertise or solicit either in print, by letter, in person or otherwise, the right to collect or receive payment for another of any claim, or seek to make collection or obtain payment of any claim on behalf of another (NRS 649.075). If a collection agency is located outside the state of Nevada and does not have or solicit clients that are domestically registered in Nevada, it can choose to be registered as a Foreign Collection Agency and obtain a Foreign Collection Agency License. If you are unsure which license is required, Contact Nevada Financial Institutions Division at FIDLicensing@fid.state.nv.us for assistance.
The Collection Agency License authorizes the following activities in the state:
- Consumer Loan Servicing
- Judgment Recovery
- Non-Private Student Loan Servicing
- Private Student Loan Servicing
- Reverse Mortgage Servicing
- Third Party Debt Collection
- Third Party First Mortgage Servicing
- Third Party Subordinate Lien Mortgage Servicing
