How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond protects clients from damages due to faulty contractor work. The bond guarantees that contractors will meet all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (Town of Southwick). If a contractor breaks their bond agreement and costs another party money, that party can file a claim to receive compensation for their losses.

To obtain your contractor bond in Southwick, you’ll need to pay a premium (a small percentage of the bond amount). ZipBonds can issue these bonds quickly, at a typical premium of $100.
