You do have to register the MLOs with their legal name. However, we are finding that when our MLOs went in to complete the registration process, some of them changed their legal name to their common name rather than listing their common name under the alias section. Now we are running into issues with our secondary market loans because our system prints the MLOs legal name but the NMLS website shows their common name. So, yes, we are seeing conflicts with registered names and common names. Lots of problems.
