381.405. No licensee may enter or offer to enter into any:

(1) Construction deposit guaranty;

(2) Construction completion guaranty;

(3) Contract of guaranty or suretyship wherein the licensee agrees to answer for the debt, obligation or default of a third party, including, but not limited to, statements of responsibility for the acts or omissions of parties which would constitute an insured closing letter if the party on whose behalf the statement is made had been a title insurance agency or agent for the issuer. The provisions of this section shall not prohibit licensees from issuing title insurance against mechanics' liens, nor prohibit a title insurance company from issuing insured closing letters regarding its own duly licensed agency or agent.
