How does a contractor license bond work?
A contractor license bond ensures that a contractor (principal) completes construction work in accordance with city and state laws. This may include adhering to building codes, paying taxes, and fulfilling all contractual obligations.
These bonds protect the City of Valdosta (the obligee) and other parties from financial loss due to the principal’s noncompliance. If someone files a claim on the bond, the surety company will cover the damages to the client. The principal must then reimburse the surety for the amount paid out.
You do not need to pay the full bond amount to acquire your surety bond. Instead, you’ll pay a premium, a small percentage of the full bond amount. ZipBonds issues contractor license bonds quickly for as little as $100. Apply online today!
