Mobile home installers in the state of Florida are regulated by the State of Florida, Safety and Motor Vehicles department.
This department and Section 320.849 of Florida state statutes, require Florida mobile home installers to obtain a $5,000 surety bond as a prerequisite for licensing.
The $5,000 surety bond is required as a financial guarantee that licensed mobile home installers will abide by all rules and regulations in their professional conduct as it concerns installation of mobile homes.
The bond, then, protects others from violations of the law.
This performance bond also allows victims of wrongful activity by an installer to file for remuneration on losses as a result of criminal, fraudulent, or negligent activity, up to the bond amount.
The mobile home license and bond are to run concurrently.
According to state law, lapses in performance bond coverage are not permitted.
The mobile home installer license runs from October 1st through September 30th.
Regardless of the time of year of this bond’s purchase, its expiration date will be September 30th.
For the vast majority of applicants, the premium for this performance bond is just $100 annually.
There may or may not be a credit check involved; however, the amount required should not substantially vary from the $100 amount.
All in all, in comparison to many other types of surety bonds, this performance bond is very low priced.
