Financial Services Bonds

Businesses that provide financial services like investment advising, insurance brokerage, credit repair servicing, or residential mortgage lending in Louisiana need specific surety bonds to be in place before providing those services to the public.

Motor Vehicle Sales

Under Louisiana law, businesses need to secure a surety bond for many activities involving the sale of motor vehicles, including new or used vehicles sales, offering vehicles for lease or acting as a wholesaler for remanufactured, reconditioned, or rebuilt vehicles.

Fishing Industry Bonds

Louisiana’s location in the Gulf Coast makes it ideal for shellfish-related businesses. The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries regulates these businesses and requires surety bonds for mussel buyers and oyster farmers.

Private Education Bonds

The Pelican State requires a number of private educational institutions to purchase surety bonds so that students can be compensated for lost tuition if the school goes out of business.. These include real estate schools, notary educational services, beauty schools, postsecondary institutions, proprietary schools, and privately owned driving schools.

Construction Licensing Bonds

In many different municipalities around the state, construction companies need to hold surety bonds for demolition, excavation, road work, and other related activities. The licenses are regulated at the local level and must be filed with the applicable city or parish.

Notary Public Bonds

Louisiana notary publics must file a $10,000 surety bond to receive a notary commission from the Secretary of State. While notary commissions last for a lifetime, the accompanying bond will need to be re-filed once every five years.
