How does a contractor license bond work?
In signing the bond contract, contractors agree to follow the standards and regulations set by the obligee (City of Brunswick). Clients can file a claim if their contractor fails to follow the agreement fully. The surety may cover the costs to settle the claim upfront, but contractors are responsible for paying them back in full – plus any associated fees and interest.
ZipBonds can issue many contractor license bonds instantly for as low as $100. We don’t require a credit check for this type of bond.
