Can a licensed mortgage loan originator (MLO) conduct an in-person meeting with a consumer at the MLO's home location?

This is not advisable, especially during the COVID-19 crisis. The MLO should utilize alternative communication methods whenever possible to conduct mortgage business through the end of the pandemic. If in-person meetings are necessary, the MLO must follow all relevant emergency orders, laws, rules, and regulations issued by federal, state, or local governments pertaining to the COVID-19 crisis including, but not limited to, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services’ Epidemic Orders and the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Emergency Rules.
