Why do I need this bond?
Virginia motor vehicle title lender surety bonds ensure that principals (title lenders) perform all written agreements with borrowers or prospective borrowers, accurately account for all funds received while on the job and strictly comply with the provisions of Chapter 22 of the Code of Virginia. The bond protects the State Corporation Commission and any individuals who suffer loss as a result of the principal’s unlawful business practices up to the full bond amount.
What’s the fine print?
Motor vehicle title lender bonds in Virginia remain continuous unless otherwise canceled by the surety or violated by the principal. The surety can terminate its obligation under the bond by giving written notification of cancellation to the Commissioner of Financial Institutions and the principal at least 90 days prior to the effective date of such termination.
