How does a contractor license bond work?

The New Haven contractor bond is set into law by city ordinances. The city (obligee) and contractor (principal) enter into an agreement to ensure the contractor follows applicable local codes. Ultimately, the bond helps protect New Haven citizens from injury and damages that may result from substandard work.

The City of New Haven Planning Department oversees construction activities in the area. Bond amounts vary, ranging from $5,000 and $25,000. The active period of the bond follows the duration of the license or permit attached to it (typically one year).
