Protection for Project OwnerSurety Bond Specialist

Many construction project owners will contract out the physical labour, material, and all other services that are required to complete a development project. The surety will ensure the owner that the project will be completed by the specified date and per the contract terms and agreement. The bond will also protect you in the event that the principal fails to pay for the labour and materials required for the completion of the project.


Benefits For The Contractor

It should be known that the project owner isn’t the only one that is protected, by this type of bond. Unpaid suppliers or contractors can also pursue payment, by using a lien and this bond. Although it is possible for liens to be levied with labour and material bonds, it helps to reduce the probability of their presence dramatically. Therefore, both sides of the arrangement should definitely seek our services, in order to protect themselves from losses.


Penal Sum

The surety will guarantee the project owner that the subcontractor will fulfill their duties. If they fail to do so, then the project owner will have to file a claim with the surety company, at which time the surety will begin a full investigation. At the end of the investigation, the surety will make a decision of whether or not the subcontractor failed to carry out their duties. If the surety favors the owner, then they will be forced to pay out a penal sum, which is the total amount of the contract.

This will not be the end of it for the surety, because they will go after the subcontractor and enforce them to repay the penal sum.
