How Do New Jersey Service Contractor Bonds Work? 

Service contracts act similarly to warranties or extended maintenance policies. New Jersey requires providers of these contracts to prove their financial ability to fulfill the contract and fund future maintenance or repairs. 

Surety bonds provide financial safety for clients hiring contract service providers. If a provider or administrator breaks industry laws, the harmed customer can file a bond claim for reimbursement. The surety will pay out valid claims to the consumer then recover the funds from the provider.
