How does a contractor license bond work?

Clay County (the obligee) sets the contractor license bond terms. The bond is a safety net for clients, ensuring the contractor (principal) adheres to all applicable city and state laws while performing work in the city.

If the contractor breaks any part of the bond agreement, the surety company will initially cover any damages to other parties. These parties may include the county, state, or individual clients. The contractor is ultimately responsible for paying the surety back for any covered claims, up to the full bond amount ($5,000).  

To obtain your surety bond, you will pay a premium – a small percentage of the bond value. ZipBonds can issue contractor license bonds quickly, at a typical premium rate of $100.
