A contractor provides a advance payment contract bond which guarantees that the contractor will repay or settle the cash paid in advance by the owner of the contract. For instance a manufacturer enters into a contract to provide specialized machinery. The Party purchasing the specialized machinery may be required to pay 50% of the value of the contract up front to the manufacturer. To protect this payment, the purchasing party, in this case would be the Obligee, may require an advance payment contract bond.
In the event of the contractor acting against the contract, the surety company ensuring the bond will recover any loses which the contractor must repay to the surety company.
If a new contractor is requesting an advance payment bond, there are some supporting documents that may be required.
An advance payment contract bond assures the owner of the contract the contractor will fulfill his/her promised duties. A bond tells clients the contractor is legal and allows clients to be assured they will be financially and legally protected in any case of fraud or misconduct. The bond amount varies since each contract job costs a different amount, so premium for the bond will vary.
