What is a surety bond in Iowa?

A surety bond is a three-party contract between an obligee, a principal, and a surety:

  • Obligee: The party that requires the bond
  • Principal: The party that purchases the bond and abides by its terms
  • Surety: The company that issues the bond and backs it financially

How much does an Iowa surety bond 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 1-10%. 

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.

How do I know which bond I need?

Various businesses, contractors, and other professionals will need surety bonds to operate legally in Iowa. Many professions that require state, county, or city licenses to work or practice will also require surety bonds.

Here are some examples:

About ZipBonds.com

Founders Ryan Swalve and Zach Mefferd formed the vision for ZipBonds.com when they realized how overly complicated it was to help clients place surety. The frustration of being unable to incorporate the technology they’d used in other insurance-focused projects left them thinking “there has to be a better way.”

Fast forward a couple of years, and that better way is the impetus of everything we do at ZipBonds. We constantly look for innovative ways to improve the bonding process for our clients and agents. Our team comprises individuals who understand all angles of surety – for companies, agencies, and individuals. Incorporating everyone’s point of view to improve the process while simultaneously integrating cutting-edge technology is what sets our business apart.
