How does an Englewood contractor license bond work?
The bonding requirement serves as a safety net, protecting other parties if a contractor breaks an applicable law or regulation in Englewood. A contractor license bond is a contract between three entities:
- Your contracting company is the principal.
- The city authority that requires the bond is the obligee.
- The surety underwrites, issues, and backs the bond.
To purchase your surety bond, you will pay a small percentage of the full bond amount annually – called a bond premium. For contractor license bonds, this amount is typically $100. See our Colorado Contractor License Bonds page for more information.
