Confidentiality Of Lender License Applications

It has been the general position of the Division of Banks that all applications for licenses from the Division are public records under Mass. Gen. Laws chapter 4 §7, and thus, any of the information submitted as part of such applications is a public record and will not be treated by the Division as confidential. However, pending legislation may amend Mass. Gen. Laws chapter 255E and establish some confidentiality protection for information submitted as part of the license application or license renewal process.
