How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond ensures a contractor will comply with all applicable city ordinances of Lake Alfred. The contractor is the principal entering the agreement with the obligee (City of Lake Alfred) and the surety. The surety company may reimburse clients for valid claims arising from the contractor breaking their surety contract. 

When someone files a claim against your bond, the surety investigates the claim to determine its legitimacy. If they find that you completed work later than agreed, your work lacks quality, etc., the claim may be approved. The surety will pay the claimant for the damages, up to the full bond amount. You will be held liable for paying this amount back to the surety.

You do not need to pay the full $5,000 for your bond. Instead, a premium is required, which is a small percentage of the bond amount. ZipBonds can quickly issue contractor license bonds, often for as low as $100.
