Woodstock, GA #1 Surety Bonds
How do surety bonds work?
Surety bonds guarantee that specific tasks are fulfilled. It’s achieved by bringing the three parties together in a mutual, legally binding contract. The requirements of the bond and ordinance must be understood before the bond is written. Depending upon the type of obligation, supporting documentation such as signatures, financial statements, and other supplemental information may be required.
- The principal is the business that purchases the bond to guarantee work performance.
- The obligee is the entity that requires the bond.
- The surety is the insurance company that backs the bond.
The obligee can make a claim to recover losses if the principal does fail to fulfill the task. If the claim is valid, the insurance company will pay reparation that cannot exceed the bond amount.
