WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
A Surety Bond is an agreement subject to the Bond Form. The Bond is usually required for monetary compensation for failure to perform specified acts referenced in the Bond Form.
A Surety Bond is a generic name for all bonds. Bonds are usually required by the state or Federal Government; these bonds are called License and Permit Bonds.
There are three parts of a Surety Bond, the first is the Obligee. They are the entity requiring the Bond.
Second is the principal. The Principal is the person who will perform the contractual obligations set forth in the Bond Form.
The third part is the Surety Company. They are the entity that will be ensuring the principle of the obligations referenced in the Bond Form.
