Surety Bond Type:  Today we are blogging about the Title Bond; aka lost title, defective title, or indemnity bondbonnie car
Definition:   This bond is required by most states when an owner has a lost or a defective title or was never given a title to their vehicle.  The state determines the value of the vehicle so your first step is to contact the DMV either by phone or in person.  They will tell you the dollar amount you are required to get – please do not determine this on your own.  Once a bond is executed you have 30 days to file with the DMV and once you file with the DMV they will provide you with a title and will hold the bond for 3-5 years depending on their requirement.
Requirements: 
  • Application on BuySurety.com
  • US citizen
  • There can not be a felony or a disqualifying misdemeanor on the record.
  • Make, model, year, body style, Vin # of vehicle and your name exactly how it appears on your driver’s license

Obligee:  State DMV
Typical Bond Premium:  For most states, the bond will cost approximately $150 when the value of the vehicle is below $10,000.  This is for the full 3 year term typically required by the states.

CALIFORNIA CONTRACTOR’S LICENSE BOND   Recently in the state of California there was an enforcement of the law that all contractors must be licensed and bonded. At this time it was reiterated to the clients the importance of hiring only contractors that have an active license and bond. You might question why you need to be bonded.  The bond is required to ensure that active, reactivated, and new licensed contractors have the ability to cover any damages your client might encounter as a result of poor construction.  It also ensures your employees are paid wages that they have earned. In California all home improvement jobs that will cost over $500 in labor and materials must be completed by a company with a state issued contractor’s license and therefore they must be bonded.  These jobs can not be divided up into smaller contract’s to bypass this law. At BuySurety.com we are able to get a contractor license bond quote quickly for you.  All we require is that you fill out an application on BuySurety.com and fill in your license number.  With a clean license, we can get a fair and competitive quote for you within a few business hours.  Requirements from the state are:
  • The bond must be written by a surety company licensed through the CA Dept of Insurance. – At BuySurety.com we only work with surety company’s that are licensed in all 50 states.
  • The bond must be in the amount of $12,500 – This will increase to $15,000 on January 1, 2016.
  • The business name and license number on the bond must correspond EXACTLY with the business name and license number on the CSLB’s records. – If it does not match exactly it is imperative that you contact the CLSB and make the proper changes before you purchase your bond.
  • The bond must have the signature of the attorney-in-fact for the surety company.
  • The bond must be written on a form approved by the Attorney General’s Office.
  • The bond must be received at the CSLB’s office within 90 days of the effective date of the bond. – In most cases we are able to file the bond electronically for you.

Arkansas Polygraph Examiners and Voice Stress Analysis Examiners Surety Bond SB 164 revises the surety bond requirement for a polygraph examiner and for a voice stress analysis examiner to specify that the bond is conditioned on paying all judgments against the examiner for a wrongful or illegal act that he or she committed in the course of conducting examinations. The bond’s liability will be limited to its face amount. Insurance may be provided lieu of the bond under current law. The new law permits examiners employed by a law enforcement agency to certify that they are covered under the agency’s membership in the Arkansas Fidelity Bond Trust Fund, its risk management pool, or liability coverage instead of providing a bond. The new law becomes effective on September 1, 2015. Arizona Surety Bonds
