Contract bonds guarantee the performance of obligations covered by a written agreement between two parties. The most common types include bid, performance and payment bonds. Surety bonds provide financial security to project owners that contractors will perform the work and pay specified subcontractors, laborers, and material suppliers.

A surety bond is a contract among at least three parties:

  • The Principal - the primary party who will be performing a contractual obligation

  • The Obligee - the party who is the recipient of the obligation

  • The Surety - who assures that the principal's obligations will be performed.
