How does a contractor license bond work?
A contractor license bond guarantees that contractors fulfill all obligations to their clients. The bond agreement states that contractors will uphold the standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Brandon). If a contractor’s work is faulty or insufficient, clients can submit a claim for the damages they suffer.
You don’t have to pay the full bond to obtain your contractor license bond. Instead, you’ll pay a premium, which is a small percentage of the bond. ZipBonds offers many contractor bonds for just $100 and can issue them instantly – without pulling credit information.
Frequently Asked Questions
Contractors usually only need one contractor bond to obtain a license or permit to work in a specific area. The requirements set forth by your municipality often cover everything you need to work in that city or county. Sometimes, however, you may need a local and state bond. Read your specific municipality requirements carefully to ensure you’re following all standards. If unsure, call ZipBonds at (888) 435-4191. We’re always happy to help!
Bonds generally have a one-year term. The renewal date is often set to a specific date each year (e.g., July 1). Remember to renew your bond by the date listed on the bond form and keep your license current to continue to operate in a state, city, or county legally.
