How does a contractor license bond work?
A contractor license bond holds contractors accountable for meeting all client obligations. In signing the bond agreement, contractors promise to follow all standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Fremont).
If a contractor breaks their agreement, clients can file a claim on the bond for compensation. The surety may cover the costs of valid claims upfront, but contractors are responsible for repaying the surety in full, up to the full bond amount.
You don’t need to pay the full bond amount to acquire your bond. Instead, you pay a premium, a small percentage of the penal sum. ZipBonds can often issue these bonds instantly, with premiums starting at just $100.
