Yes. You will need to comply with the lender license laws for each state that you intend to do business is otherwise you could be in for a rude awakening looking into the future. There are lender license laws in each state and they are pretty simple to comply with.

We are lending money to a special purpose entity and taking a collateral assignment of ownership interest in the entity as security. Not a mortgage. We are a commercial "lender".
Q: Are you aware of an expeditor service?
Q: What state agency would typically handle registration/licensing?
I do not believe that such a thing exists in the financial services arena. If it does, it goes by a name other than "expeditor service".
Typically, registration of foreign corporations is under the Secretary of State's office. If you were a commercial bank, which you don't appear to be, it would be under the state's department of financial institutions, or whoever regulates banks, S&Ls etc.... Most states do not regulate private commercial loans.
I hope this information is helpful, and thank you for using Pearl.com/Just Answer.
