Most states require that individuals file a surety bond before they can be licensed as a professional auctioneer or auction house operator. Just like other surety bonds, auctioneer bonds protect consumers in the event of fraud or other ethical breaches. With this particular bond, consumers are typically protected against the substitution of goods and/or the misrepresentation of auction items by the auctioneer. But don't worry if you don't know much about surety bonds yet; we've developed this guide just for you!

Learn More About Surety Bonds for Auctioneers
Surety bonds are legally binding contracts that involve three parties. When it comes to auctioneer bonds:
- The state is the obligee that requires the bond.
- The auctioneer is the principal that purchases the bond.
- The surety is the underwriter that produces the bond.
By posting a surety bond, an auctioneer promises to fulfill certain obligations as outlined in the bond form. By providing the bond, the surety agrees to make sure these obligations are upheld.
If an auctioneer fails to uphold the bond's terms, however, harmed parties can file a claim against the bond. If the claim is found to be valid, the surety will ensure the obligations are fulfilled and/or reimburse harmed parties to resolve the situation.
