Why do I need this bond?

By posting a Louisiana auto title company bond, principals (auto title companies) pledge to engage in business as an auto title company as defined by Section 702 (12) of the Louisiana Revised Statutes of 1950. Specifically, these bonds guarantee the payment of all loss, damages and expenses that occur as a result of the principal’s unlawful business practices - namely failing to report all sales taxes collected by the auto title company at the time of a transaction.

What’s the fine print?

Auto title company surety bonds in Louisiana remain in full force and effect until canceled. The surety can cancel the bond at any time by giving written notice via registered mail to the department and the principal. Cancellation becomes effective 30 days after the department receives the notice.

These bonds expire on May 31, so your bond premium could be prorated depending on when you buy it. Our team of surety experts works hard to get you bonded according to your specific needs.
