Who needs a contractor license bond in Sherwood?

Sherwood, Arkansas, requires contractors working within city limits to be licensed and bonded. The contractor license bond amount is $10,000 for building trade contractors and builders that construct, repair, or erect buildings where a permit is required.

Contractors that perform right-of-way work must have an additional permit, and those working on land-altering construction activities need a grading permit. The Sherwood Permits & Planning Division handles permitting duties and code enforcement. Reach out to this division for details on requirements for your specific project.

How does a Sherwood contractor license bond work?

This surety bond protects the City of Sherwood (obligee) against financial losses due to failure on the contractor’s (principal’s) part. If the contractor fails to follow all state and local laws, it could result in poor financial decisions, physical damages, or unethical business practices that lead to financial loss for the obligee.

The surety issues the bond, which guarantees the contractor’s work performance. If someone files a valid claim on the bond, the surety may initially cover the costs to settle it. Later, however, the contractor must pay back the surety in full.

You will pay an annual premium to obtain your bond, which usually is $100 per year. Check out our page on contractor license bonds in Arkansas for more information.
