|Bond Type||Bond Amount||Cost|
|$3,000 Master HVACR Bond||$3,000||$50|
Why do I need this bond?
The bond must be filed with the Board of Examiners to obtain a license as required by N.J.S.A. 45:14C-26 and N.J.A.C. 13:32-2.5, and it ensures that all Master HVACR contractors will abide by all rules and regulations set forth by N.J.S.A. 45:16A-1. In the event that a contractor fails to perform their job pursuant to these regulations and a claim is filed against the bond, the surety will pay out up the full amount of the bond and will then look to the principal (contractor) for reimbursement.
What’s the fine print?
Master HVACR bonds expire on June 30th of even years. All bonds written before that date will be active until then, at which point they must be renewed for the full two-year term. The surety may also cancel the bond at any time by notifying the obligee in writing at least 30 days in advance.
