 California Surety Bond – What is it?

Herman Southern California Surety Bond

A surety bond is a promise by a surety or guarantor to pay one party (the obligee) a certain amount if a second party (the principal) fails to meet some obligation, such as fulfilling the terms of a contract. Therefore, the surety bond protects the obligee against losses resulting from the principals failure to meet the obligation. IN A NUTSHELLA surety bond works to guarantee your performance, honesty, and willingness to adhere to the rules of a contract.


The principal is an individual, business or other party that purchases the surety bond and agrees to undertake a compliance, payment or performance obligation as promised pursuant to the terms of the surety bond form or agreement.


The surety is the insurance company or surety company that guarantees the obligation will be performed. If the principal fails to perform the act as promised, the surety is contractually liable for losses sustained.


The obligee (pronounced ob-li-jee) is the party who requires and often times receives the benefit of the surety bond. For most surety bonds, the obligee is a local, state or federal government organization.
