How do contractor license bonds work?

A contractor license bond holds contractors responsible for fulfilling all client work obligations. The contractor who signs the bond agreement guarantees they will abide by all standards and regulations of the obligee (City of Findlay). 

Clients can file a claim for compensation if a contractor’s work doesn’t follow the bond agreement in any way. The surety will initially pay out an approved claim, but contractors are responsible for paying back claims over time, up to the bond amount. 

To obtain your bond, you will pay a premium, a percentage of the penal sum. ZipBonds can often issue these bonds instantly, with premiums starting at just $100.

Frequently Asked Questions

Typically, bonds run for one-year terms and therefore require annual renewal. Your renewal date will be listed on your bond form.

Often, only a single contractor license bond is required. However, working in multiple trades means you will likely need to post one bond per trade. Read the Findlay requirements carefully to ensure you remain in good legal standing.
