Express Surety Bonds

What's Included

Upon successful completion of your bond request via TIS Express Surety Bond, your bond documents will appear in a separate browser on your desktop. The bond documents consist of four main elements:

BOND FORM

  • If the bond form does not have a graphical signature of the president, it must be signed by the attorney-in-fact, and a separate Power of Attorney (POA) document is required by the obligee.
  • The attorney-in-fact should sign the bond form the same way it is typed in the associated “By” line.
  • Before the principal signs the bond, they should check to see if their signature must be notarized.
  • The principal should sign the bond the same way it is typed in the associated “By” line.
  • If the principal is a corporation, partnership or LLC, any officer of the company may sign the bond.

POWER OF ATTORNEY FORM (IF APPLICABLE)

  • A POA form is usually included, except when the bond form has a graphical signature.
  • The POA form should be attached to the bond form before it is sent to the obligee.

INDEMNITY AGREEMENT AND ADDENDUM (IF APPLICABLE)

  • All parties, including spouses, must sign the indemnity agreement and addendum documents as indicated. Refer to the Signature Instructions on page 2.
  • The signed agreement and addendum must be returned within 14 days.
