What is a surety bond?

Surety bonds are often used in construction contracts as a means to provide a financial guarantee that you will fulfil your contractual obligations. 

Surety bonds involve three parties: the principal, the employer, and the surety.

  • The principal is the party who needs the bond and is responsible for fulfilling the obligation.
  • The employer is the party who requires the bond to ensure that the principal fulfils their obligation.
  • The surety company is the party that guarantees that the principal will fulfil their obligation to the employer.

If the principal fails to fulfil their obligation, the surety will compensate the employer for any losses incurred.

We understand that surety bonds can be complex, which is why we have a team of experts at CG Bonds who can guide you through the process and help you make informed decisions. Please get in touch with us today at 0203 833 9933 or for more information.

Why do I need a surety bond?

There are many benefits to securing a surety bond:

  • Risk mitigation: In case of a default by the principal, the surety bond provides the employer with financial compensation to cover any losses incurred, providing greater protection of the underlying contract conditions. 
  • Cash flow advantages: Surety bonds enable you to improve liquidity by freeing up vital working capital as a bond provides the necessary protection to the employer. This means surety bonds are a great alternative to significant increased retention offerings.
  • Enhanced credibility of the principal as it shows their commitment to completing the project as agreed upon.
  • Lines of credit: Surety bonds can operate alongside and do not impact banking lines of credit.

  • Completed & Signed Application Form

  • The stability of the applicant’s finances.
  • Level of bond being sought
  • The bond duration.
  • The nature of the bond wording.
  • The unique characteristics of the project.
