What is a Surety Bond?

A surety bond guarantees someone will perform work as specified in a contract, or that someone will make an agreed upon payment to another party.

Construction Contracts

Typically, bonds are required for local, state and federal construction projects to help safeguard public funds used for the projects. Examples include Bid Bonds and Payment and Performance Bonds.

License and Permit Bonds

These may be required to obtain a license or permit in many cities, counties, states, or other political subdivisions. They may be required for a number of reasons, including the payment of certain taxes and fees as a condition for selling products such as motor vehicles or contracting services.

Public Official Bonds

This type of bond will protect against dishonesty and lack of faithful performance by a public official. Statutes and ordinances may require these bonds.
