What is a surety bond?
A surety bond is a three-party agreement between the principal (the 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.
