If I’m only auctioning my *own* home–and not offering my services for hire–do I still need the bond? at #798 Eric ScarberryParticipant Yes, you need a bond to conduct an auction. Who owns the property auctioned is not relevent to the bond. Author Posts Viewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
