Arizona Bonded Title

What is a Bonded Title?

When a person receives a vehicle that does not have a title, or the title they have was not properly filled out, there is a process that they must follow to legally obtain a title for that vehicle. This process is called the Bonded Title process, it consists of a thorough multi State MVD/DMV search, National stolen database to ensure it is not stolen, a level 1 inspection of the vehicle, motor vehicle record reports, certified letters sent to all previous owners, and establishing a bond amount. Once the entire bond process is completed a surety bond will need to be purchased for the vehicle and then pay the title and registration fees. The main difference between a Bonded title and a regular Arizona title is that the Bonded title has the Surety Bonds connected to it. The surety bond is comparable to a safety net; in the event of a prior owner disputing the transfer and wantrs to claim the vehicle as their own in the future, the surety bond will pay that person for the vehicle if their request is accurate and it would then be the current owners responsibility to pay the bond company.
