Surety / Bond Services

Our surety department works with clients to develop customized bond programs that fit each client's unique needs. Surety companies are reviewed and evaluated for consistency in underwriting, capacity, ratings, stability, and rate economy. Clients are effectively represented to surety markets with assistance in bond request presentation, review of bond requests for appropriateness, and prompt, correct bond issuance.

A surety bond is a contract among at least three parties:

  • The Principal

    The primary party who will be performing a contractual obligation

  • The Obligee

    The party who is the recipient of the obligation

  • The Surety

    Who assures that the principal's obligations will be performed

Types of Bonds

  • Bid Bond

    Assures that the bid has been submitted in good faith and that the contractor will enter into the contract at the price bid and provide the required performance and payment bonds.

  • Performance Bond

    Protects the owner from financial loss should the contractor fail to perform the contract in accordance with its terms and conditions.

  • Payment Bond

    Assures that the contractor will pay specified subcontractors, laborers, and material suppliers on a project.

  • License & Permit Bond

    Assures financial remedy to injured parties and is often required by various public entities to guarantee compliance with codes and regulations.

  • Notary Bond

    Assures financial remedy to the public for state regulated duties of a Notary.

  • Judicial Bond
