Collection agency surety bonds guarantee that debt collectors will abide by all state and federal laws. The surety bond protects the public legally and financially if the collector breaks the law when dealing with the public. If the principle acts against the bond, the state has the legally ability to cancel the bond and revoke the business license.
Typically, the bond amount is determined by factors such as the number of agency employees, how much revenue is expected, and the population the agency will be serving, among others. The bond premium (the cost to you) is only a small fraction of the bond amount. Surety1 works to get you the lowest possible premium for your bond.
This bond guarantees that the principle will abide by all Texas state laws outlined in the provisions of 392.001 of the Texas Financial Code.
Since this bond is continuous, it is in full force and effect until cancelled. If it is cancelled, the obligee must be notified of the cancellation at least 60 days before the cancellation date.
The applicant should verify the bond amount with the obligee before applying for the bond to ensure the bond amount is correct.
