Why do I need this bond?
By posting a Florida public adjuster’s bond, the principal (public adjuster) pledges to conduct business in compliance with the provisions of the public adjuster laws, Part IV of Chapter 626, Section 626.851 through 626.878 of the Florida Statutes and the rules and regulations of The Department of Financial Services.
If the principal fails to comply with these terms, the bond protects the department from financial loss. Specifically, the bond authorizes recovery by the department of the damages sustained if the principal is guilty of fraud or unfair practices in connection with her or her business as a public adjuster.
What’s the fine print?
Florida public adjuster bonds remain in full force until canceled. The surety can cancel the bond by giving written notice of cancellation to the principal and the department. The bond will be canceled 30 days from the receipt of said notice.
