How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond protects a contractor’s clients from damages resulting from faulty contracting work. The bond guarantees that contractors will meet all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (the City of Independence). If the contractor fails to follow the bond agreement and costs a client money, that client can file a claim for compensation.   

To obtain your contractor bond in Independence, you’ll pay a premium – a small percentage of the bond amount. ZipBonds can issue these bonds for as low as $100 a year.
