What Are Contractors License Bonds?

Contractors license bonds are a type of commercial surety bond that is a three party contract between the contractor (the principle), the entity requiring the bond called the obligee (typically the state licensing entity) and the surety (the company backing the bond). If a an employee or client of a contractor is financially harmed as a result of a state law violation, then a claim against the contractors license bond may occur. However, before a surety makes a payout on a license bond, they will investigate any claim and its validity. However, unlike insurance, when a payout does occur, the contractor is responsible for repaying the surety the amount of the bond claim plus legal expenses.
