The Utah Motor Vehicle Defective Title Bond is required by the Utah State Tax Commission for those who cannot present a certificate of title. The bond states that the bondholder shall well and truly pay and indemnify any person, firm or corporation who may subsequently establish legal ownership or interest to the motor vehicle at the time of transfer of title certificate. The bond amount is usually twice the value of the vehicle.
