Louisiana has over 200 surety bond types. Jet's comprehensive database covers it all—car dealers, mortgage lenders, public adjusters, contractors, and more.
The purpose of surety bonds is to protect the land and citizens of Louisiana. The principal is the one required to obtain the surety bond, and they have the legal obligation to follow the rules, regulations, and laws applicable to their permit, license, contract, etc. If the principal fails to do so and further refuses to address the issue, anyone who has experienced financial loss as a result can file a claim on the bond. For example, if a residential mortgage lender fails to disburse any funds in accordance with any agreement connected with a mortgage loan, the customer can file a claim with the surety company (Jet) to be reimbursed for the damages, up to the bond limit.
