Title insurance agent bond cost

The Kansas Department of Insurance requires that all title agents acquire a surety bond in an amount determined by the number of people located in the county in which they operate. The amount required is as follows:

  • For populations of 20,000 or less: $25,000
  • For populations of 20,001-40,000: $50,000
  • For populations of 40,001+: $100,000

Due to large bond requirements, title insurance agent bonds in Kansas are subject to underwriting— meaning that the premium one should expect to pay is largely dependent upon the applicant’s personal credit. However, applicants with exceptional credit can be quoted for as little as 1-3%.

Why this bond

The requirement for title insurance agents to obtain a surety bond is established by KSA 40-1139 and is in place to ensure that the agent will perform all duties and obligations mandated by KSA 40-1135 through 40-1141. The bond is issued to benefit person or people suffering a loss due to the agent’s mishandling of money received or held in escrow, deposit or trust. In the event that a loss is incurred and a claim is filed, the surety will pay out up to the full amount of the agent’s bond in order to reach a settlement. Once the claim has been settled, it is the responsibility of the agent to reimburse the surety for all money paid out in the claims process.
