Why do I need this bond?
Florida business opportunity surety bonds are put in place to ensure that principals (licensees) adhere to the provisions of sections 559.80-559.815 of the Florida Statutes, which is also referred to as the Florida Sale of Business Opportunity Act. If the principal does violate this code, the bond protects any consumer who is harmed by the principals actions up to the full penal sum of the bond. The principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.
What’s the fine print?
Business opportunity bonds in Florida remain in full force and effect until canceled. The surety can cancel the bond by giving written notice of cancellation to the state at least 30 days prior to the effective termination date.
