Virginia Home Service Contract Providers Must Get a Surety Bond

What Changed for Virginia Home Service Contract Providers?

A new bill was enacted in April of 2017 that requires home service contract providers in Virginia to get a surety bond.



The bill named HB 1542 requires home service contract providers to register and post a surety bond or letter of credit in an amount ranging from $10,000 to $90,000 based on the total dollar amount of unexpired home service contracts that the provider has in effect. The bond will be for the benefit of the contract purchasers if the provider does not fulfill its obligations under the contract. A funded reserve account will be required in addition to the bond. A liability insurance policy will be accepted in lieu of the bond and reserve account.
