How does a contractor license bond work?
A contractor license bond stipulates that contractors fulfill all work obligations. By signing the bond, contractors promise to follow all standards and regulations of the obligee (Hamilton County). Clients can submit a claim for damages if a contractor fails to abide by the agreement. The surety will initially pay approved claims to clients, but contractors are ultimately responsible for paying back claims up to the full bond amount.
To acquire your bond, you’ll pay a premium, a percentage of the penal sum. ZipBonds offers premiums starting at $100 and can often process contractor bonds instantly.
