What is a Texas Telephonic Seller Surety Bond?
Texas law requires anyone who induces a person to purchase, rent, claim or receive an item over the telephone to register with the Texas Secretary of State’s Registration Unit and post a $10,000 surety bond before they can conduct business in the state. This bond guarantees that the principal (telemarketing company) will comply with all provisions of The Texas Telephone Solicitation Act and provides protection to any person who is injured by fraud, misrepresentation, breach of contract or financial failure by the principal. If financial damages occur, the surety will pay out up to the penal sum of the bond to resolve the claim. The principal is then required to reimburse the surety for all monies paid out, including any attorney fees incurred.
What are the terms of the bond?
Texas Telephonic Seller Surety Bonds must be filed with the Texas Secretary of State’s Registration Unit, and the aggregate liability of the surety shall not exceed the penal sum of the bond. The bond has a continuous term and remains in force until the surety company cancels the bond. The surety may cancel the bond for any reason by giving 90 days advanced written notice to the state and principal.
