What does this bond do?
These bonds offer reimbursement to the Superintendent of Financial Services in the event of insolvency, bankruptcy or liquidation of the principal (mortgage loan servicer). If the principal violates the terms of the bond, a valid claim can be filed against this bond. The surety will cover damages up to the penal sum of the bond, but the principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out in a timely manner.
Send a bond request and a surety expert will contact you to walk you step-by-step through your bond application.
What’s the fine print?
All bonds will remain effective unless canceled by the surety. If the surety chooses to cancel a bond, a written cancellation notice must be mailed to the Superintendent of Financial Services 30 days prior to the given cancellation date.
