Apart from ensuring the compliance of the auctioneer to the laws and rules, the surety bond will also serve as a financial guarantee that the bonded auctioneer has the capability to compensate any individual that will be harmed by his or her misconduct or violation.

The requirement complies with Section 20-279 of the New York City Administrative Code and Section 101-3 of the City of Jamestown Code.
