Shortly after purchasing a car, you make a trip to the DMV to register it under your name. However, the DMV requires you to have the car’s title with the seller’s and your information. What do you do if you never got the title from seller? Or, if you lost the title before going to the DMV? Fortunately, most states allow vehicle owners without a title to get a bonded title.

Get quotes by selecting your state below.

How does a bonded title work?

A bonded title functions the same as a regular title. But, the title has a bonded branding on it. Similar to other vehicles with title brands, such as salvage and rebuilt titles.

The process to get a bonded title varies by state and not every state offers the option. If you receive confirmation from the state that your vehicle is eligible for a bonded title, you’ll need to buy a surety bond.

Getting your bond is quick and easy with our online quoting tool. See what our existing customers are saying about us on Google.

Katrina and Surety Solutions was awesome to work with and made the process seamless. Even after I, PERSONALLY, made a mistake and caused a delay, Katrina was able to spot my mistake and kindly address the error while still delivering my bond as if nothing had happened.I have nothing but good things to say about Surety Solutions.

Katrina and Surety Solutions were very helpful and fast. I needed to change the bond I ordered and they handled that within minutes. Their response time to emails and request were great and that is why I will continue to work them both. All I ask for is relatively decent response time when there are issues that need resolved and Katrina far exceeded that and was friendly on top of everything else. Well done.Kris

I bought a surety bond for my business. The name on the application has my middle name on it and the policy didn't. That would or could have created a problem. I wrote to customer service to complain. Well not complain but ask for it to be changed. Since it was Thanksgiving weekend I wasn't expecting to hear back till this week sometime. Well to my surprise it was "Very" Quickly. JD was very helpful and professional. Fixed it then contacted me with the corrected version. Couldn't be happier. " Good Business is Good Business"

Surety Solutions is a fantastic company to work with. I was in a unique situation and was having trouble finding a company willing to underwrite an estate conservatorship bond for me. Surety Solutions took the time to listen to me and shopped around with their underwriters and found someone willing to underwrite the bond. Having to experience the probate system is a major headache; however, Surety Solutions makes sure the bonding portion of it does not have to be 🙂

I worked with Cryssi at Surety Solutions in order to secure a $900,000 conservator bond. Their quote was by far the best out of several companies I requested quotes through ($2,110 vs. $3,500). Cryssi was always very helpful and responded very quickly during business hours and often during after hours via email. I will continue to work with and renew with their company especially if their quotes and customer service remain this excellent. Thank you again! MikeSo just an update to my original post. It was time to renew the conservator bond this year and Cryssi at Surety Solutions made the process extremely streamlined and convenient. I received an email stating it was time to renew the bond with a link to pay online. My rate didn't change at all and it took about 30 seconds to renew my bond. This has been an easy, convenient, and one of the most affordable companies to work with. Some of the best customer service in the market which is sometimes hard to find these days! Thank you again for an affordable quote which was seamless to renew. Thank you Cryssi!

The quote was obtained, approval given, and the transaction was complete in a just a couple of hours. I could not be more pleased!

*Indiana and Ohio allow for court-ordered titles. We cannot assist with getting your title.

What is a surety bond?

A surety bond is a three-party agreement between you, the surety company and the state you’re registering your vehicle. As the individual needing the bond, you are the principal. Whereas the state requiring you to get a surety bond is known as the obligee.

With this bond, you are guaranteeing you’re the rightful owner of the vehicle to the state. As the obligee on the bond, the state is not held financially responsible if the vehicle doesn’t actually belong to you.

If a claim is made against your bond, the surety company conducts a thorough investigation to determine the validity of the claim. The claimant may receive up to the full amount of the bond if the surety finds them to be the rightful owner of your vehicle.

Who is responsible for a claim?

Unlike when you buy an insurance policy, the surety bond is not coverage for yourself. The surety will payout on a claim they deem to be valid. However, you are responsible for making the surety financially whole after a claim.

Experiencing a claim against a bond doesn’t benefit any of the three parties associated with the surety bond. Hence, most states require you do everything you can to connect with the vehicle’s last known owner to ensure a claim doesn’t happen.

Where do I find out if my vehicle is eligible for a bonded title? [& how do I determine the bond amount?]

Your best course of action to determine if your vehicle is eligible for a bonded title is to contact your local DMV (or BMV). If your vehicle is eligible, they can advise you of what paperwork and other requirements you must complete to get your title.

There are many reasons your vehicle may not be eligible for a bonded title. Such as an active lien, vehicle’s age or missing VIN to name just a few.

The required bond amount varies by state. Typically, the bond amount must be set at the same value as the vehicle, one and a half times the vehicle’s value or double the vehicle’s value. You’ll need to make sure the bond amount is exactly what the state requires. Otherwise, if your bond amount is too high or too low, the state likely will not accept your bond.

Our team at Surety Solutions, A Gallagher Company cannot determine your vehicle’s eligibility or necessary bond amount for a bonded title. Only the state requiring the bond can provide this information.

Our Certificate of Lost Title Bonds are non-refundable. Please ensure your vehicle is eligible for a bonded title before purchasing your bond.

How much does the bond cost? [How often do I have to pay?]

What you pay for your Certificate of Lost Title Bond largely depends on the bond amount you need. Although, most of our surety partners offer quotes starting as low as a $100. Lost Title Bonds do not renew. So, you only pay for them once and they remain active for the entire term length.

Get instant quotes for your bond by selecting your state and bond amount.

When does the bond expire? [& what happens afterwards?]

The term length of your bond depends on the state you are registering your vehicle. Generally, the bond is set to expire within 3-5 years from the date your bond becomes effective.

Most states will remove the bonded branding from your title after your bond expires. However, we recommend verifying what happens after your bond expires with your local DMV.

What do I do after I buy my bond?

Purchasing the bond is one of the final steps to getting your bonded title. You first need to verify your vehicle is eligible for a bonded title and determine the bond amount requirement. Once you have your bond, submit it and any other associated paperwork to the appropriate state department, usually the DMV, to receive your bonded title.

I have more questions. [Bonded Title FAQ]

Find answers to frequently asked questions about Certificate of Lost Title Bond below.

Getting the Certificate of Lost Title Bond is a quick process. After you purchase your bond, our team signs, seals and ships the bond directly to you. The process of getting the title varies by state. Please contact your local DMV if you would like an estimate on the length of time it takes to receive your bonded title.

Generally, the bond amount will either be the same value as your vehicle, one and a half times the value of your vehicle or double the value of your vehicle. The state will most likely reject your bond if the bond amount is not enough or too much. Check with your local DMV to determine the required amount for your bond.

Our team is unable to advise you on the bond amount you require.

No, a vehicle is not eligible for a bonded title if it’s not rightfully yours. We recommend you contact your local DMV to determine what options you have.

Our team cannot verify your vehicle’s eligibility for a bonded title or assist with getting a title for an abandoned vehicle.

You’ll want to check with both states to determine which state you need a bonded title.

Most states require you to be a resident to qualify for a bonded title. Contact your local DMV to start.

Our team is unable verify your vehicle’s eligibility for a bonded title. Also, we cannot advise you in which state to get your bonded title.

A vehicle inspection is a requirement to get a bonded title in most states. This inspection is typically performed by a registered vehicle inspector or law enforcement officer. Please contact your local DMV to verify if an inspection is necessary and how to schedule one.

Our team is unable to advise you on if an inspection is necessary or how to schedule an inspection.

The DMV may provide you with some options on removing the lien from the vehicle. They may suggest you send a certified letter to the lienholder or contact the original owner of the vehicle.

Our team is unable to assist with removing a lien from your vehicle.

Yes, since your bonded title functions the same as a regular title. However, the bond remains in your name until it expires. Leaving you liable for any claims made against the bond. Please contact your local DMV if you have any questions.

If your bond is rejected by the state, verify all the changes that need to be made to the bond. All changes to a bond can be made with a single bond rider. Submit a rider request for a Certificate of Lost Title Bond purchased through Surety Solutions, A Gallagher Company here.

Our Certificate of Lost Title Bond rider fee is $35. This fee covers all changes made on a single rider.
