How does a contractor license bond work?

Code compliance bonds ensure that contractors abide by applicable regulations and codes set by their obligee (the City of Sanford). The bond is a safeguard for clients, ensuring the contractor (principal) adheres to any applicable city and state laws while performing work in the city. If they break a law that results in damages for the client, the client may file a claim to recoup their losses. Bond claims can be expensive and damage a contractor’s reputation so should be avoided at all costs.

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.
