What is Surety Law?
Surety law is the promise by one party to step in and assume responsibility for the financial obligations of another party if that person or company fails to meet their contractual obligations.
Typically, a surety bond (also called a surety) is a promise from a guarantor to pay an obligee a set amount of money if the principal (in most cases the contractor) fails to meet their defined obligation. That obligation is usually the promise of the principal to fulfill a contract.
A surety bond involves three parties:
The principal: This is the person or company that purchases a bond and agrees to perform the work in a well-defined and financially responsible manner.
The obligee: this is the company, person, or agency that requires the principal to purchase the bond for a service to be performed. The obligee is often a government agency.
The surety: this is often an insurance agency that is guaranteeing the work of the principal and is assuming the liability for any claims against the principal up to the full amount of the bond.
