A dealer, as defined in Section 18002.6, or a salesperson, as defined in Section 18013, is not required to be licensed as a mortgage loan originator under the provisions of state law that implement the federal Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act of 2008 (Public Law 110-289), if the dealer or salesperson performs only administrative or clerical tasks on behalf of a person meeting the definition of a mortgage loan originator, and if the dealer or salesperson does not accept compensation from a lender, mortgage loan originator, or from any agent of any lender or mortgage loan originator.


For purposes of this section, the term “administrative and clerical tasks” means the receipt, collection, and distribution of information common for the processing or underwriting of a loan in the mortgage industry and communication with a consumer to obtain information necessary for the processing or underwriting of a residential mortgage loan.
