The Commission also has investigation and licensing duties under the Pawnshop Act, Precious Metal and Gem Dealers Act, Credit Services Organization Act, Health Spa Act, Rental-Purchase Lessor Act and the Mortgage Broker Licensure Act. The Commission conducts customer records exams of licensed Supervised Lenders, Pawnbrokers, Credit Service Organizations, Rental-Purchase Lessors, and Mortgage Brokers.
