What is a surety bond?

A surety bond is a legally binding agreement between three parties: the principal (the person or entity being bonded), the obligee (the person or entity requiring the bond), and the surety (the company providing the bond). 

A surety bond is essentially a guarantee that the principal will fulfill their obligations or responsibilities to the obligee. If the principal fails to do so, the surety will compensate the obligee for any losses or damages incurred, up to the amount of the bond.

Surety bonds are often required by government agencies, contractors, and other businesses in order to ensure that the obligations of the principal are fulfilled. Examples of surety bonds include construction bonds, which guarantee that a contractor will complete a construction project as agreed, and license and permit bonds, which are required for certain professions and businesses to ensure compliance with regulations and laws.

The cost of a surety bond varies depending on the amount of the bond and the risk associated with the principal's obligations. The surety company will typically evaluate the creditworthiness and financial stability of the principal before issuing a bond.
