Well reclamation efforts require a $1,500 surety bond, while drilling, deepening, re-opening, or temporarily abandoning wells need either a $2,000 or a $10,000 surety bond, depending on specific circumstances.
Motor Vehicle Dealer BondsTennessee auto dealers need a bond to operate. Most dealers must post a $50,000 motor vehicle dealer bond before receiving their dealer tags. Motor vehicle auctions require a separate $50,000 bond.
Financial Services BondsMany different financial services occupations require bonding in The Volunteer State. Licensed collection service companies, credit services businesses, licensed debt management service providers, and flexible credit lenders all need to be bonded before opening their doors in Tennessee.
Manufactured and Modular Home BondsCompanies specializing in manufactured and modular homes in Tennessee are required to take out surety bonds. There are specific bonds for manufacturers of manufactured homes, modular building units, the installation of stabilizing systems for manufactured homes, and for running a manufactured home or modular building unit dealership.
Vice Tax BondsA number of states require so-called “vice” businesses to collect and remit taxes and fees to the state. In Tennessee, these businesses must post a surety bond to ensure the state receives payment. Examples include alcohol wholesalers and distributors, cigarette and tobacco retailers, and lottery retailers.
City or County BondsThere are many cities and counties within Tennessee that require specific surety bonds. Nashville and Davidson County, for example, requires contractors to purchase a $10,000 or $40,000 contractor registration permit bond to operate in the metro county.
