How does a contractor license bond work?
A contractor license bond ensures that contractor work fulfills all client obligations outlined in the contract. In signing the bond agreement, contractors affirm that they’ll follow all standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Aurora).
Clients can file a claim for compensation if a contractor’s work doesn’t meet the city’s standards. The surety will initially pay out an approved claim. Then contractors have a set amount of time to reimburse the claim, up to the total bond amount.
You don’t need to pay the bond amount upfront to obtain your bond. Instead, you’ll pay a premium, a small percentage of the penal sum. Often, ZipBonds can issue these surety bonds instantly – and premiums start at just $100!
Frequently Asked Questions
These bonds often run on one-year terms. The bond form will list the renewal date for your specific bond. You must renew your bond before this date and keep your license current to continue working in your location.
Usually, you will only need one license bond. However, there are some instances where a local and a state bond may be required. Read the municipality requirements carefully to ensure you follow all applicable regulations.
