What is a Surety Bond
A surety bond is a promise by a Surety Company (the company insuring the Bond) to pay one party requiring the Bond (the Obligee) a certain amount if the second party (the Principal) fails to meet the obligation on the bond form. The Surety Bond is designed to protect the Obligee against losses resulting from the Principal.
Types of Surety Bonds
There are different types of bonds: license & permit, ERISA, business services, probate and fiduciary just to name a few.
An example of a license and permit bond is the requirement of a State (Obligee) when an application is submitted for a Motor Vehicle Dealer license. The applicant (Principal) must satisfy the bond obligation (amount & expiration date), along with other regulated requirements.
