A Surety Bond is essentially a guarantee. What exactly the bond guarantees depends on what language is written in the bond. With surety bonds there are always 3 parties involved.

The 3 parties involved are:

  • The Principal – the primary business entity who will be performing a contractual obligation.
  • The Oblige – the party who is the recipient of the obligation.
  • The Surety – who ensures, guarantees the principal’s obligations will be performed. Sureties are similar to insurance companies.

This agreement says that the Surety agrees to uphold – for the benefit of the oblige – the contractual obligations made by the principal, if the principal shall fail to uphold their agreement with the oblige.  Often consumers require a bond before they will agree to enter a contract with a contractor.
