More About the Real Estate Bond

 

An Oregon Real Estate Marketing Organization Bond is a type of surety bond that promises your customers you will conduct business according to state and federal rules and regulations. If you violate any of your terms, the bond protects any harmed parties from financial loss.

 

How it works is this: If someone feels you have not fulfilled your obligations, they can make a claim against your Oregon Real Estate Marketing Organization Bond. When this happens, the surety company who issued your bond will start an investigation. 

 

If the surety company determines you are at fault, they will allow you to satisfy the claim. If you fail to do this, they will pay the claimant. With a surety bond, though, it will be your responsibility to repay the surety company.
