License & permit bonds are the type of bonds that are typically required by a state agency or organization in order for you to receive the business license you must have to conduct business. The majority of surety bonds are in fact license and permit bonds.

Performance bonds, bid bonds, and payment bonds are contract-specific bonds available for contractors. These types of surety bonds offer greater protection to the hiring organization or person.

Court bonds are a broad category of bonds that include surety bonds needed for legal proceedings. These include trustee bonds, mechanics lien release bonds, probate bonds, and fiduciary bonds.

Understanding The Surety Bond Terminology

We know surety bonds can be confusing, and sometimes you need a translator to help you understand the various words you're reading! Our glossary of surety bond terms will give you the definitions to the words you're seeing, making it easier for you to find the bond you need and get your application started.

The key terms you need to be familiar with are "obligee", "principal", "suretyship", "underwriter", and "surety".

The obligee is the entity that requires the bond and that benefits from the protection of the surety bond. An obligee may be an organization, company, person, agency, or governing body.

The principal is bound by the bond and is responsible to fulfill their duties and responsibilities of the contract entered into between themselves and another party.

If the principal defaults, the surety must meet the requirements of the bond and protect the obligee from loss according to the terms of the bond.

Suretyship is the state of obligation of one entity (usually the surety company) to answer to another party (the obligee) when the responsible party defaults.

An underwriter is responsible for reviewing key information an applicant provides on a surety bond application. The underwriter assesses the risk associated for the surety company to provide a bond to the applicant.

Premium Underwriting Services

We partner with multiple underwriters for the bonds that require application review before they can be approved, and make it our mission to find a surety company that will write your bond, even if you have bad credit or a poor credit history or financial blemishes on your record.

Did you know that we offer an individualized underwriting review for contractors needing performance bonds? If you have a low credit score, our underwriters take the time to review your business history, background in the industry, and reputation in your field.

That means that to us, you are more than your credit score!
