LOST DOCUMENT BONDS

 

 

What Are Lost Document Bonds?

 

Lost Document Bonds, also known as Lost Securities Bond or Lost Instrument Bonds, are required by private businesses, banks and other financial institutions when a person or corporation has accidently misplaced, lost or destroyed an original document that proves ownership. Examples of such can be:

 

  • Certificated cheques
  • Life insurance policies
  • Stock certificates
  • Debentures
  • Bank Drafts
  • Common or preferred stocks
  • Federal, provincial, municipal or corporate bonds
  • Lost savings bonds
  • Lost document certified cheques

 

Before issuing a replacement, financial institutions may require legal protection should the original and replacement still exit, in order to avoid the possibility of both being cashed, known as Double Redemption, either by accident or fraudulently.

 

The Lost Instrument Bond provides assurance that the issuer of the replacement security will be legally protected from economic loss should the lost document turn up later. The Lost Securities Bond allows the issuing corporation or entity to provide a replacement certificate with the documents and piece-of-mind that they are legally protected.

 

Types Of Lost Document Bonds

 

There are two types of lost document bonds or lost securities bonds:

 

  • Open Penalty:  are used for replacement certificates of fluctuating value such as common shares.
  • Fixed Penalty: are used for replacement certificates of fixed value such as corporate debentures.
