How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond is a three-party contract between the obligee (City of Benton), principal (contractor), and surety. The bond protects the obligee if the principal fails to abide by the law or breaks the surety agreement. The injured party can file a claim against the bond for compensation for their losses. The surety may settle the claim for the principal upfront, but the principal must later repay them in full.

Avoid claims against your bond by fulfilling all obligations in your bond contract and following local and state laws for your industry. To obtain your bond, you will pay a premium – a small percentage of the total bond amount of $2,000. You will likely pay $100, which is the minimum premium amount on this particular bond.
