Tips on Searching

Select the appropriate agency in the Regulator/Agency field, then type only the first few letters of the name in the appropriate field, followed by the percent sign (%).

For example, to find a hypothetical credit services organization (broker) called MORTGAGE SOLUTIONS OF MAINE:

  1. Select "Consumer Credit Regulation" in the Regulator/Agency field
  2. Type "mort%" in the Company Name field
  3. Click <Find Licensee>. This will return a list of all licensed entities in the Consumer Credit Protection database with company names that start with "mort."
  4. From the list, click on MORTGAGE SOLUTIONS OF MAINE to get details on the company

NOTE: For companies with names that start with "The," use the first word after "The" for the search. For example, to find "The Warm Stove Shoppe," use "Warm%."
