How Do Outdoor Advertising Bonds Work?

These surety bonds are a type of license and permit bond. That means they’re required before you can be licensed in the outdoor advertising industry in certain states. 

The surety bond contract legally binds three parties:

  1. Principal: The individual or company purchasing the bond
  2. Obligee: The state government agency requiring the bond
  3. Surety: The insurance provider issuing the bond

How Much Does an Outdoor Sign Permit Bond Cost?

Outdoor advertising bond costs and requirements vary greatly because regulations are established on a state level. Your exact premium price will vary depending on the amount of coverage your state requires. 

Outdoor advertising business bonds start at just $100 for a one-year term in Mississippi. In Texas, however, the bond amount and price vary based on the number of counties in which you construct or maintain billboards.
