Why do I need this bond?
Utah private investigator bonds are put in place to ensure that principals (private investigative agencies) compensate any person injured by the unlawful business practices of the private investigator, his or her agency or his or her employees.
The bond protects harmed parties from financial loss up to the full bond amount of $10,000, and the principal must reimburse the surety for any damages paid out.
What’s the fine print?
Private investigative agency surety bonds in Utah are continuous and run concurrently with the license period. These bonds remain in full force until the principal’s license is terminated or the bond is canceled by the surety upon 30 days’ written notice of cancellation to both the state and the principal, whichever occurs first.
