If the principal (mortgage broker/banker) violates the bond terms, the surety company will pay valid claims to harmed parties up to the full bond amount. The principal must then reimburse the surety company.

These bonds remain active unless canceled by the surety or the principal. If either party decides to terminate the bond early, they must provide 60-days’ written notice to the Department of Financial Institutions.
