A Surety Bond is an agreement providing for monetary compensation should there be a failure to perform specified acts within a stated period.
Also known as a lost title bond, certificate of title bond, insurance bond, auto title surety bond, defective title bond and DMV bond. A title bond is a guarantee to the state that you can legally be the owner of the vehicle. It allows you to forgo the hearing process and obtain your title quicker. The bond protects the PUBLIC, not the person purchasing the bond. If the previous owner files a claim and the surety company finds they should be paid, the surety company will pay the previous owner the amount of the bond and require the purchaser of the bond to pay that amount back.
The cost is based off 1 1/2 times what the DMV values the vehicle. The bonds start as low as $100.
