How does a contractor license bond work?
A contractor license bond holds contractors accountable for fulfilling all obligations to clients. By signing the bond agreement, contractors guarantee that they will follow the standards and regulations of the obligee (Village of Brooklyn Heights).
Clients can file a claim for damages if a contractor breaks any part of the bond agreement. The surety will cover the costs to settle the claim upfront, but contractors are ultimately responsible for paying back claims up to the full bond amount.
To acquire your bond, you will pay a premium (a small percentage of the penal sum). ZipBonds often issues contractor license bonds immediately – and premiums start at just $100.

License bonds typically last for one year before needing to be renewed. Your renewal date will be listed on the bond form. Keep your bond, license, and permit up to date so you can continue working legally.
Often, each trade you work in requires a separate bond. Read your municipality requirements carefully to ensure you fulfill all local and state requirements.
