How does a contractor license bond work?
Contractor license bonds protect contractor’s clients from damages resulting from work that is deficient in one or multiple ways. Under the bond terms, contractors must follow all regulations and codes of the obligee (the Village of Morton Grove). If the contractor fails to meet any part of the bond agreement, clients can file a claim to receive compensation.
You will pay a premium, a small percentage of the bond amount, to obtain your license bond. ZipBonds can issue license bonds quickly – typically for $100.
