How does a contractor bond work?
A contractor license bond guarantees that a contractor (the principal in the bond contract) completes work in accordance with city, county, or state laws. This may include adhering to building codes, paying taxes, and fulfilling other contractual obligations.
A Wellington contractor protects the village (obligee) and a contractor’s clients from financial losses. If one of these parties identifies a break in the bond agreement and files a claim, the surety company will cover the damages to the client. The principal must then reimburse the surety for the amount paid out.
You’ll pay a premium, a small percentage of the penal sum, to obtain your bond. ZipBonds can often process your bond instantly – and premiums start at just $100.
Frequently Asked Questions
Both the Wellington registration and bond must be renewed by January 30 each year. Also ensure your insurance stays up to date to remain in good standing in the village.
You may need a separate bond per trade if your work covers multiple trades. You can verify your bonding requirements with the Wellington Department of Finance.
