How do contractor license bonds work?
By signing the bond agreement, contractors promise to follow the standards and regulations of their obligee (e.g., the City of Lyndhurst). Clients can file a claim for compensation if the contractor fails to follow the agreement in any way that costs clients money. The surety will then pay to settle the claim upfront. However, contractors are responsible for paying back approved claims in full.
To get your bond, you’ll pay a small premium (a percentage of the penal sum). ZipBonds offers contractor bond premiums starting at just $100.
