How does a contractor license bond work?
A contractor license bond ensures that contractors fulfill all obligations to clients and follow the standards and regulations set by the obligee (City of Hattiesburg). If a contractor’s work is faulty or insufficient, clients can submit a claim to receive compensation for damages. The surety initially pays out approved claims, but contractors must later repay them up to the full bond amount.
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 only need one license bond generally. However, you should check your local municipality’s requirements to make sure. State and local bonds are required in some locations or for specific projects.
Bonds often have one-year terms. The renewal deadline is typically a specific date each year (e.g., July 31). Remember to renew your bond by the date listed on the bond form and keep your license or permit current to continue operating in your state, city, or county.
