The terms of the bond must run concurrent with the period of time during which the license will be in effect. The bond must provide that the applicant will faithfully conform to and abide by the provisions of this chapter and to all regulations lawfully made by the Commissioner under this chapter and to any such person any and all amounts of money that may become due or owing to this State or to such person from the applicant under this chapter during the period for which the bond is given.


Each bond must be in a form satisfactory to the Commissioner, issued by a bonding company authorized to do business in this State and must secure the faithful performance of the obligations of the licensee respecting the provision of the services of the consumer litigation funding company.


A licensee shall, within 10 days after the commencement of any action or notice of entry of any judgment against the licensee by any creditor or claimant arising out of business regulated by this chapter give notice thereof to the Commissioner by certified mail with details sufficient to identify the action or judgment. The surety shall, within 10 days after it pays any claim or judgment to a creditor or claimant, give notice thereof to the Commissioner by certified mail with details sufficient to identify the creditor or claimant and the claim or judgment so paid.


The liability of the surety on a bond is not affected by any misrepresentation, breach of warranty, failure to pay a premium or other act or omission of the licensee, or by any insolvency or bankruptcy of the licensee.


The liability of the surety continues as to all transactions entered into in good faith by the creditors and claimants with the agents of the licensee within 30 days after the earlier of:


The death of the licensee or the dissolution or liquidation of his or her business; or


The termination of the bond.


A licensee or his or her surety shall not cancel or alter a bond except after notice to the Commissioner by certified mail. The cancellation or alteration is not effective until 10 days after receipt of the notice by the Commissioner. A cancellation or alteration does not affect any liability incurred or accrued on the bond before the expiration of the 30-day period designated in subsection 6.


The Commissioner shall adopt regulations establishing the amount of the fees and the bond required pursuant to this section. All money received by the Commissioner pursuant to this section must be placed in the Investigative Account created by NRS 232.545.
