Get your lost instrument replaced ASAP!

Georgia Lost Instrument BondHaving a lost, destroyed, or unreadable instrument replaced is not as difficult as you may think! We can help you get a new one through this surety bond!

A Lost Instrument Bond is a surety bond that will be required of you to have your important instrument replaced. Issuing authorities will require you to submit this type of bond. This surety bond will serve as a protection to the issuing authority in case another person files a claim on the instrument that’s been replaced.

This type of surety bond will also act as an assurance that if the principal found the lost instrument after it has been replaced, the principal will surrender the new one to the issuing authority or surety for proper disposal.

Instruments are legal documents that have financial value. Some examples of these so-called important instruments are as follows:

  • Stock Certificate
  • Real Estate Certificates
  • Certificate of Deposit
  • Treasury Bills
  • Bond Futures
  • Cashier’s Check
  • Passbook


What is the bond amount? 

The bond amount varies widely.  The surety bond cost, however, will depend on the value of the instrument.

Instruments that have a value of $5,000 or less can have a surety bond cost of $100.

For instruments that have more than $5,000 in value, the surety bond cost that you need to pay will be $20 per one thousand.
