Surety Bonds

Apply Online

Surety Bonds are used throughout a range of trading professions, whether here in the UK or internationally. They are used to help businesses secure work, and make a guarantee that something will be done to the required specifications, and used as a safety blanket if anything were to go wrong.

They are most popular in the construction industry. For example, councils will use them to help guarantee the building of a road by a third party company is built to standard and on time. If not then the bond will be used to finance finishing the job.

At Alternative Insurance Brokers, we understand the importance of getting the correct bond in place to help your business. There are many types of bonds, all different in their own way.  For this reason bonds can be complex, and hard to understand if it’s a new concept to you.

Surety Bonds FAQs

Who does a surety bond involve?

A bond will involve the following three participants:

The Surety The Principal The Obligee
(ourselves) (you) (the party who requires the bond)

What is a surety bond?

Surety Bonds are a contract put in place to ensure that work is done on time, and completed to a required standard. If it is not, the the bond acts as an insurance, and can be claimed upon to help get the work completed to the standard that is needed.

Surety bonds are an insurance for the obligee, as they are the ones who are able to make a claim on them. The obligee is usually a government agency, with the bond in place to protect the government and citizens. For example, when a road is worked on or built, the local council will get a bond in place to make sure that it is completed in time and to a safe standard. If it isn’t, then the money from the bond will go towards making sure that the road is safe.

The part played by the surety is that they back you, the principle, stating if a claim were to arise then you are able to pay out. This is why the underwriting of bonds involve looking thoroughly at your company and company accounts to make sure you have the ability to pay if that is what it comes to. However if the claims cannot be paid by the principle either directly or through court, then it is the surety that will be liable to pay.

Bonds can be used for a wide range of businesses or projects, but a majority of the time they will be related to construction. However, bonds can also be used in finance or for banks.
