How Do I Get Bonded?

What Is a California Foreclosure Consultant Bond?

Foreclosure consultants in California have to obtain a Certificate of Registration from the Attorney General's Office prior to starting their legal operations in the state. One of the requirements you have to meet is to present a foreclosure consultant bond.

The surety bond is a security instrument that protects the state and your customers. It can be used as a source of compensation if a party suffers damages due to illegal actions that you may commit.

A surety bond is a contractual agreement between three entities. The principal is your foreclosure consultancy. The Attorney General’s Office is the obligee that imposes the bond requirement. The third party that provides the bond is the surety.

Questions about Foreclosure Consultant Bond in California

When do I need this bond?

The California Attorney General’s Office requires all foreclosure consultants to get a Certificate of Registration. As a part of this process, you have to obtain a $100,000 surety bond and file a copy of it with the Secretary of State. The bond ensures you will comply with the Mortgage Foreclosure Consultant Law.

What is the cost of a California foreclosure consultant bond?

In order to get registered, you have to post a $100,000 bond. The actual surety bond cost that you have to pay is based on this bond amount. However, it is only a small percentage of it, called the bond premium. You can expect to pay 1% to 5% of the bond amount if your finances are in good shape.

Your exact bond price can be calculated only after you apply with a surety. It has to examine your personal credit score, business finances, liquidity, assets, and even professional experience. This is how it can assess the risk that your bonding poses. The more solid your profile is, the lower your bond premium will be.

What if I get a claim against my California foreclosure consultant bond?
