Tired of paying an arm and a leg for a bond?
A couple of short minutes can save you up to 65% or more with the nation’s top surety companies –
Commonly referred to as the surety triangle, a contractor surety bond is a three-party contract between:
The Principal – Party that needs the surety bond
The Obligee – Party that requires the surety bond
The Surety – Party that provides the surety bond
The surety bond (surety) is a guarantee to the project owner (obligee) that the hired contractor (principal) will fulfill the obligations outlined in an awarded contract.
It’s important to understand that a contractor surety bond is not an insurance policy. It is essentially a line of credit. If the surety bond pays out, the principal is liable for the debts paid out by the surety company.
Purchasing a bond can be more affordable than putting up the entire out-of-pocket funds yourself or providing a letter of credit from a financial institution. It is especially beneficial to a contractor with multiple ongoing projects at any time.
Most surety companies require a credit check as an underwriting guideline for calculating the bond premium. However, some companies will waive the credit check as an option for a higher premium.
Many surety companies allow a co-signer, but in most cases, it may not be a spouse or business partner. A co-signer can be a great asset in obtaining a lower premium for contractors needing a little assistance while rebuilding their credit score.
