How does a contractor registration bond work?
A contractor license bond holds contractors accountable for fulfilling all client obligations. The contractor signing the bond agreement agrees to follow all applicable standards and regulations of the obligee (Fayette County).
Clients can file a claim if a contractor’s work breaks any part of the bond agreement. The surety will pay out approved claims initially, but contractors are responsible for paying back claims over time.
To obtain your bond, you’ll pay a premium. ZipBonds can often issue bonds instantly for annual premiums as low as $100.
Frequently Asked Questions
Bonds typically run on single-year terms and require annual renewal. The renewal date will be listed on your bond form.
If you are seeking registration for multiple trades, you will need a bond for each trade. If your work falls into a single trade, you will likely only need one license bond. Read your registration requirements carefully to ensure compliance.
