What is a Massachusetts bonded title?

Massachusetts Title Law, Chapter 90D, Section 12 requires individuals who own vehicles with missing titles to file a bond as part of the ownership registration process. By filing a Massachusetts certificate of title surety bond, an individual verifies they legally own their vehicle and that it was not acquired under fraudulent circumstances.

The bond protects previous owners, lien holders, and future vehicle owners in the event the original title is found. If a valid claim is filed on the bond, the surety company will pay the harmed party up to the full bond amount, which the bonded vehicle owner must reimburse.

Who registers vehicles with missing titles?

The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles enforces registration requirements for vehicles with lost, stolen, or missing titles. Before the RMV will issue a certificate of title, applicants must file a surety bond in the correct amount.

How do I determine my bond amount?

Massachusetts replacement title bond amounts must be 1.5 times the vehicle's appraisal amount as determined by the registrar. If you need help determining your required bond amount, contact the Registry of Motor Vehicles before purchasing your bond.
