What’s the fine print?

Auctioneer bonds in Virginia remain continuous unless otherwise canceled by the surety. To cancel the bond, the surety must give written notice of cancellation to the principal and to the Virginia Auctioneers Board at the address of the Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation in Richmond, Virginia. This notice must be received by all parties at least 60 days prior to the effective date of cancellation.

If a Virginia auctioneer surety bond is purchased within 5 days of the end of a calendar month, the expiration or effective-through date will be 2 years and 1 month from the end of the month in which the bond is purchased. The Virginia Auctioneers Board Regulations require that the bond must commence no later than the effective date of the license and must not expire sooner than the expiration date of the license.
