Lost an Important Document in Colorado?

Close up of a stock certificate

A Lost Instrument Surety Bond is required in Colorado for any lost, stolen or destroyed valuable document or instrument that you may own.

The surety bond protects the original issuer from any financial loss as a result of issuing a duplicate. Most often the original issuer will require a bond prior to re-issuance of the document or instrument in order to protect themselves from any loss.

Types of Surety Bonds:

Fixed Penalty Bonds are for instruments with a fixed value such as a promissory note or money order.
Open Penalty Bondsare for instruments that have a varying market value, such as a stock certificate.

The most common types of lost instruments are common and preferred stock certificates. Other examples include:

  • Life Insurance Policy
  • Promissory Note
  • Money Order
  • Cashier's Check
  • Check
  • Certificates of Deposit
  • Mortgage
  • Bankbook
  • Any other Financial Instruments and Securities

  • Colorado requires a lost instrument bond for lost promissory notes. The surety bond amount will be the amount of the promissory note x 1/2 equasl the total bond amount. For example if the promissory note was for $50,000 the surety bond amount will need to be 1/2 times more ($25,000) =$75,000.
