What is a surety bond in California?

California has more bond requirements than any other state, including contractor license bonds, cannabis bonds, title bonds, freight broker bonds, auto dealer bonds, and many others. 

A surety bonds is a contract between three parties: 1) the obligee requiring the bond, 2) the principal who purchases the bond, and 3) the surety that issues the bond.

How much does a surety bond in California cost?

The cost of a bond can vary based on a few different factors, including the type of bond, the amount required, and your credit score and finances. Your bond premium will be a small percentage of the total bond amount – typically 1-3%. 

Generally, the stronger your credit score, the lower your rate will be. In some cases, however, we don’t even need to run your credit. Some bonds can be issued instantly at a flat rate.

About ZipBonds.com
