Take the first step to finding out what bond you need and what rate you qualify for.

Individuals and businesses who secure a surety bond in North Carolina protect the people of the state by providing a financial guarantee for their work. Individual surety bonds offer a wide array of protection that varies with each bond type, as many bonds work differently. Although understanding the bonding process in North Carolina might seem complicated or confusing at first, a little research could go a long way in protecting your investments, as well as those of your clients.

The North Carolina state government requires many different individuals and businesses to get bonded, hoping to discourage them from taking part in fraudulent acts. However, if the principal (or bonded entity) does behave unethically, then the client (or obligee) can make a claim against the bond. If the claim is verified then the surety company will compensate the obligee for damages, leaving the principal to pay retribution up to the bond’s full value. Herein lies the difference between insurance policies and surety bonds: whereas insurance policies offset likely financial losses, bonds aim to prevent unethical business practices and thus avoid financial losses.

North Carolina surety bond costs

North Carolina surety bond rates and premiums fluctuate due to a number of variables, including the specific bond being issued and the principal’s financial standing, among other factors that a surety company might take into account. A bond generally costs between 1 and 3 percent of its full face value. For instance, if the desired bond amount is $10,000, a typical principal with a good credit report would pay around $100 to $300 for the bond. However, if the principal’s financial history has negative marks the bond will likely cost more because the surety takes a greater risk in backing the principal. A principal with a poor credit history will need an agency like Surety Bonds.com to issue a non-standard (or bad credit) bond.
