What Is a Minnesota Auctioneer Bond? 

Any auctioneer operating in Minnesota must file a bond with their local licensing authority. Surety bonds hold auctioneers financially liable for following all licensing laws and regulations, including:  

  • Selling goods of a minor
  • Selling in unauthorized locations 
  • Selling at an auction without a license 
  • Improper advertising 
  • Changing address without notifying the country auditor

How Do Minnesota Auctioneer Bonds Work? 

Auctioneer surety bonds create a legally-binding contract between three parties: 

  1. Principal: The auctioneer purchasing the bond from the surety
  2. Obligee: The licensing authority requiring the bond from the principal
  3. Surety: The surety provider issuing the bond to the principal 

Within this contract, the auctioneer is responsible for upholding the bond terms. If they fail to do so, the obligee can file a claim to recover damages. The surety guarantees payment for these claims. 

How Much Do Auctioneer Bonds Cost?

Minnesota auctioneer bonds have a set price of $100 per year for every applicant. To save $25 on your bond premium, select a three-year term.
