A Florida certificate of title bond may be required by the state’s Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) if you are unable to produce a title which gives you ownership to a vehicle.
Besides being the Department which requires this bond, Florida statute 319.23 (7) lays out the conditions under which a surety bond is required.
A Florida certificate of title bond may also be required of a mobile home.
AmeriPro Surety Bonds issues any certificate of title bond required by the DHSMV.
The purpose of the Florida of certificate of title bond requirement when you are unable to provide proof of ownership of a vehicle is this:
Since you are the one who is claiming ownership to a vehicle, the Department requires you to purchase the certificate of title bond to protect the potential, unknown interests of others.
This surety bond, therefore, does not protect you, personally, at all; it only protects those others who may have a prior or later interest in the vehicle now owned by you from loss.
Should a loss be discovered and paid up to the bond’s value, you would be required to reimburse the surety for any and all costs made.
While the purchase of the bond is for the protection of others, having the bond allows the DHSMV to issue you a bonded title which demonstrates your ownership of the vehicle.
By statute, the amount of the Florida certificate title of bond required will be:
You may be surprised, but the cost of this surety bond is as little as 1.5% of the value of the vehicle determined by the DHMSV.
The amount required may or may not be affected by your credit score.
In any case, you have an advocate with AmeriPro Surety Bonds who will work to find you the best and lowest surety bond pricing.
The premium for this surety bond is paid just once.
The bond’s coverage is for 3 years from the date of purchase.
