What type of bond do you need?
When it comes to choosing the type of Surety Bond you need, it’s important you choose correctly. The entity requiring you to get a bond, known as the Obligee, will not accept your Surety Bond if it’s the incorrect type and bond amount. If you’re unsure of the type of bond you need, we recommend contacting the Obligee and requesting a copy of the bond form.

Are you unable to register your car because the title is missing? Or, maybe you were title jumped and the DMV won’t accept the title you received from the seller. Fortunately, the state of Michigan offers the option to get a Bonded Title.

How much does a Michigan Surety Bond cost?
The bond type, bond amount and your credit are typically factored into the cost of your bond. A high bond premium is generally expected when greater risk is associated with your coverage. However, many of our Michigan Surety Bonds start as low as $100.
If a credit check is necessary to calculate your bond cost, we’ll only perform a soft-pull on your credit. This means the credit pull won’t adversely affect your credit score. If approved, your bond premium should be 1%-5% of the bond amount.
Is it possible to get a Surety Bond with bad credit?
Many of our bonds don’t require a credit check and don’t use credit to determine the bond premium. Bonds that do require a credit check may still be approved, even if you have non-standard credit. Usually, the cost of the bond is between 5%-15% for approved applicants with non-standard credit.
