A Pennsylvania Auctioneer Bond is a surety bond required by the Pennsylvania State Board of Auctioneer Examiners (SBAE) for all licensed auctioneers in the state. The bond serves to protect consumers from financial losses if an auctioneer fails to comply with Pennsylvania law or the SBAE’s rules and regulations.

The Auctioneer Bond is a three-party agreement between the auctioneer, a surety company, and the SBAE. The surety company guarantees that the auctioneer will meet its financial obligations under the bond. If the auctioneer fails to comply with the law or the SBAE’s rules and regulations, the surety company may be required to pay damages to consumers who have been harmed by the auctioneer’s actions. If the surety pays a claim, it will seek reimbursement from the licensee.

The Auctioneer Bond is a condition of licensure for auctioneers in Pennsylvania. Auctioneers must obtain the bond before they can apply for a license from the SBAE. The bond must be maintained in good standing for as long as the auctioneer is licensed to operate in Pennsylvania. The amount of the Auctioneer Bond is $5,000.
