What is the purpose of the Florida Auctioneer Surety Bond?

Auctioneer Surety Bonds are put in place to help protect against any misconduct. The bond protects the buyer’s bids/purchases. Auctioneer surety bonds also protect against any sort of misrepresentation of items auctioned and any substitution of goods. Additionally, the bond guarantees the recovery of fines, expenses and/or fees levied by state regulators for non-compliance of the auctioneer. Auctioneer license holders who fail to operate responsibly may be subject to a bond requirement. Some entities may also prefer, or even require, that an auctioneer be bonded, for financial protection for the auction.
