Lost Title Bonds

What is a Lost Title Bond?

If you have a lost or stolen vehicle title, you might be required to purchase a surety bond. Vehicle title bonds are also known as certificate of title bonds, lost title bonds or defective title bonds, but they all serve the same purpose. This bond type guarantees damages in case an individual claims ownership of a vehicle with a previously missing title.

Similar to insurance policies, surety bonds offer financial protection against fraud. You might need a bond if:

  • your original title was lost or stolen
  • a natural disaster ruined your title
  • you paid for a vehicle but didn’t receive a title, and the lender is out of business
  • your vehicle is too old to have a title
