What is a License Bond?

A license bond is a very important type of surety bond that protects you, the contractor, the company who hired you and the state bond issuing agency.Government agencies require business owners in certain industries to purchase these bonds before they can be legally licensed. By getting the contractor license bond, you are guaranteeing that you will always provide proper and professional services.

License bonds are required of those who must obtain licenses or permits from cities, towns, or political subdivisions before they can proceed with various activities. These bonds, although used for a variety of purposes, usually guarantee that the persons who post them will comply with statutes, regulations or ordinances that regulate their activities.

A license or permit bond carries a term that corresponds with the period covered by the license or permit issued to the principal. The right to file a claim under the bond continues for varying periods, depending upon the state in which it was issued. Termination of a license or permit bond depends upon the following:

  1. whether or not termination is allowed by law;
  2. the ordinance under which the bond is required;
  3. the terms of the bond itself.
