What Does a Surety Bond Involve?

Surety bonds are a type of license or permit bond. Sometimes you are required to have such a bond to do business in a certain city, county, or state. The bond is a guarantee that the principal will perform work in the manner agreed upon. If the principal fails to perform, the bond will cover resulting losses or damages.
