What is a surety bond?

A surety bond is a three-party agreement between the principal (theCalifornia Surety Bonds person or business that needs the bond), the obligee (the person or entity that requires the bond), and the surety (the company that issues the bond). The bond guarantees that the principal will fulfill their obligations to the obligee. If the principal fails to do so, the surety will pay the obligee up to the amount of the bond.

What types of surety bonds are required in California?

There are many different types of surety bonds required in California, including:

Why are surety bonds required?

Surety bonds are required to protect the public and businesses from financial losses caused by fraud, incompetence, or other wrongdoing. For example, a construction bond protects the project owner from financial losses if the contractor fails to complete the project or goes out of business. A license and permit bond protects the public from financial losses if a licensed professional commits fraud or malpractice.

How much does a surety bond cost in California?

The cost of a surety bond in California varies depending on the type of bond, the amount of the bond, and your financial strength and creditworthiness. Generally speaking, the higher the amount of the bond and the riskier the business, the higher the premium will be.

The cost of the bond is usually between 1% and 3% of the bond amount, subject to a minimum premium and fees of $150 to$250. Surety1 will shop its many markets to procure the right price at the right terms.
