How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond protects a contractor’s clients from damages due to unsatisfactory or unsafe work. The bond guarantees that contractors meet all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (the City of Jackson). If the contractor fails to follow the bond agreement fully, clients can file a claim for compensation.

To obtain your contractor bond in Jackson, you’ll pay a premium, a small percentage of the bond amount. ZipBonds can often issue bonds quickly, at a usual premium of $100.
