The surety bond requirement is in compliance with Section 18086.5 of the California Health and Safety Code, and is enforced by the California Department of Housing and Community Development.
The applicant must also present a Statement of Facts prior to submitting this bond. It should include the following information:
- An explanation of how the unit was obtained.
- The effort the current owner made to contact the last owner in order to obtain evidence of ownership.
- The current market value of the unit.
How does a California Certificate of Title Bond work?
The bond is an agreement between three parties: Principal (current owner of the house or vehicle), Obligee (California Department of Housing and Community Development), and the Surety (surety bond provider).
The Surety will ensure that the Principal will fulfill the obligations required by the Obligee. The Surety will also ensure that the Obligee will be paid if there are any undisclosed defect on the unit or claim upon application.
The Surety will settle the claim made by the Obligee if the Principal cannot do so. The Surety will first investigate the validity of the claim before any payout is made. If the claim is valid, the Surety will pay the Obligee. The Principal must then reimburse the Surety after the payment’s made.
How much does a California Certificate of Title Bond cost?
The bond premium will start at 1.5% of the bond amount for those who have excellent credit scores.
The bond amount will be equal to the current market value of the unit. This will be determined by the California Department of Housing and Community Development using either an approved value guide or the actual known sales or purchase price of the unit.
