How does a contractor license bond work?
This surety bond guarantees that the contractor complies with all county ordinances relevant to local contracting work. The contractor is the principal entering the agreement with the obligee (Orange County) and the surety. The surety company pays clients for any damages they may suffer due to the contractor breaking the agreement.
You do not need to pay the full $5,000 upfront. Instead, a premium is required, which is a small percentage of the total bond amount. ZipBonds issues contractor license bonds quickly, with premiums starting at just $100.
