How do contractor license bonds work?
Contractor license bonds ensure that contractors meet all applicable regulations and codes their obligee (City of Seven Hills) sets. The bond is a safeguard for clients.
The contractor acts as the principal in the bond contract. The bond guarantees a client compensation if the contractor breaks licensing and permit laws that result in damages. The surety may cover any costs to settle a bond claim upfront, but the contractor is ultimately responsible for paying back the surety over time.
To acquire their bond, contractors don’t need to pay the full amount. They will instead pay a premium, a small percentage of the penal sum. ZipBonds often issues these bonds instantly for just $100.
