- How much will a title agency bond cost?
- Does this bond apply to my car title agency?
No. These bonds are required of title insurance agencies. Depending on your state, you may need a title service agent bond which is a bond required of motor vehicle title agencies. For more information, visit our non-dealer motor vehicle bond page. Since legislation does change, it is wise to contact the state directly to confirm whether there have been updates.
- What is the bond process?
Apply, receive a quote online, sign the surety agreements, pay online and then we will ship the bond out.
- Will this help with my lost vehicle title?
No. These bonds are required of insurance agencies for title insurance. Lost title bonds or lost instrument bonds, are issued if a document such as a vehicle title is lost. We do not handle lost instrument bonds.
- Do I need an escrow license bond for every state my agency operates in?
Not necessarily. Bonds are only needed in states you operate in that have a title agency bond requirement. Take a look at our state requirements below and see if your states are listed. If they are not, contact the states directly to determine the requirements as new legislation may have been enacted.
- Can this bond be used for individual title agents?
Usually, yes. However, it can vary from state to state. Some states require bonds of entire agencies while others require individual agents to obtain bonds. Please view our state requirements below. If you do not see your state, it is wise to contact the obligee where you operate.
