What is a Defective Title Bond?

When selling a vehicle, most people just simply pass title.  However, in certain circumstances, the title has been lost or there is some other problem.  In these cases, the state will transfer title, but only if a bond is issued.  That way, the buyer can be assured that there is not a defective title and will therefore transfer title.

How much does a title bond cost?

A defective title bond is $100 for cars that cost less than $6,000.  For those that cost more than that, the cost is generally 1.5% of the value of the vehicle.
