Collection Agency Bond
Collection agency and debt collector bonds are required in roughly half of the 50 states. These bonds are a type of license and permit bonds which are required by law or ordinance to be able to engage in business as a collection agency. In the states with collection agency bond requirements, they are required as part of a license or registration application. The exceptions are New Jersey and Texas, which require a bond, but no accompanying license.
Most bonding companies are not familiar with the statutes and filings unique to collection agency bonds. Here at Cornerstone, we specialize in collection agency bonds. Cornerstone also has access to a wide network of surety companies with appetites for all types of bonds and competitive pricing.
A compliance only bond is required by the state and often by the city in which the property is being built. The bond indicates that all parties involved in the build will follow codes. Compliance bonds protect the property owner to ensure that their contractors will follow code. We write bonds for electricians, plumbers, and other construction tradespersons.
