Why do I need this bond?

By posting a Texas manufactured housing bond, the principal (manufacturer, installer, retailer, broker or rebuilder) pledges to comply with all terms of the Texas Manufactured Housing Standards Act and all rules and regulations set by the executive director of the Manufactured Housing Division. If the principal fails to conduct business lawfully and ethically, the bond will be used by the state to satisfy claims resulting from any violation by the licensee directly related to the construction, rebuilding, sale, lease-purchase, exchange, brokerage or installation of a manufactured home.
