Replevin Bond Guide

A writ of replevin is a court order to seize or attach property that is alleged to be wrongfully held by the defendant. This process happens before the official court judgment. The attached property is held in court-supervised custody until a final decision is made.  

What Is a Replevin Bond? 

A replevin bond is a type of judicial surety bond filed by a plaintiff in a replevin lawsuit. This bond guarantees that the defendant will get their property back if they win the case, holding the plaintiff accountable for their actions. 

How Do Replevin Bonds Work? 

Replevin bonds, like all surety bonds, legally bind three parties in a contract: 

  1. Principal: The bondholder and plaintiff in the replevin lawsuit 
  2. Surety: The company issuing the bond and backing the principal’s obligation 
  3. Obligee: The defendant in the court case and beneficiary of the bond 

If the court determines the defendant has a legal right to the property, the replevin bond guarantees return of the property and repayment for legal expenses by the plaintiff to the defendant.

Who Needs a Replevin Bond? 

Legal courts may require a plaintiff to file a replevin bond if they sue to recover property from a defendant. Plaintiffs need to be bonded before a judge will award possession of property in a civil dispute prior to the official judgment. 

How Much Do Replevin Bonds Cost?

Replevin bond amounts are often set at twice the value of the attached property. The premium cost is a small percentage of the bond amount, depending on the applicant’s creditworthiness. Apply today for an exact quote.
