What owners should know about surety bonds?
While surety bonds are not required for all construction projects, they are often required by law for certain types of projects, such as public works projects under the Miller Act. In addition, many private project owners also require contractors to obtain surety bonds as a condition of being awarded the project.
How do you get a surety bond?

After your application has been approved, the surety company will issue a bond. The bond will be in effect for a certain period, typically one year.
Who's involved in surety bonds?
There are three primary parties involved in a surety bond: the principal, the obligee, and the surety.

What are the rights of a surety bond holder?
A surety bond holder has the right to be indemnified by the surety for any loss sustained as a result of a breach of contract by the principal. The surety is also obligated to defend the principal against any actions brought by third parties arising out of the performance of the contract. In addition, the surety must pay any valid claims against the bond.
Can a surety bond holder be changed?
If you need to change your surety bond holder for any reason, you can do so by contacting your surety company and requesting a change. The surety company will then issue a new bond with the new holder listed on it. You will be responsible for any fees associated with the change. Once the new bond is in place, the old bond will be void and the new holder will be responsible for any claims made against the bond.
What are the liabilities of a surety bond holder?
A surety bond holder can be held liable for damages if they fail to perform the duties required of them under the contract. This includes failing to pay any money owed, or to complete any work that was agreed to. If the surety bond holder is found to have breached their contract, they may be required to pay damages to the other party. In some cases, the surety bond holder may also be required to pay interest on the amount owed.
