Why do I need this bond?
By posting an Alaska home inspector bond, principals (inspectors) pledge to comply with all terms of AS 08.18 and pay all taxes and contributions due to the state and political subdivisions of the state, as well as pay all people who furnish labor or materials or rent or supply equipment to the inspector. If the principal completes negligent or improper work or fails to comply with these terms, the bond protects the state and contracted individuals from financial loss.

What’s the fine print?
Alaska home inspector bonds are run continuously from the date stated on the bond until the certificate of registration is revoked or otherwise terminated by the Department of Commerce. The surety can cancel the bond by sending written notice of cancellation to the department, and cancellation becomes effective 30 days after the postmarked date of the notice.
The principal must state his or her full title under the signature space on the bond form.
