    Getting Construction Bonds for Jobs

    Contract bonds such as bid and performance bonds are needed to work on public construction projects. However, these are usually required by cities or municipalities as opposed to the state. You can learn more about what’s needed to get surety bonds for construction projects.

    Getting Court Bonds in Kansas

    Court bonds aren’t needed as often as the bonds mentioned above, but can be required by the courts if you need to appeal a court decision, become a legal guardian of a minor or operate as a fiduciary of an estate.

    What Do Kansas Surety Bonds Cost?

    Surety bonds generally cost 1-15% of the required bond amount.

You can get an instant estimate by using our bond premium calculator, or apply online to get a firm surety bond quote.

    Can You Get Bonded with Bad Credit?

    It’s possible to get surety bonds with bad credit, but it will depend on the bond type you need and how severe your credit issues are. You can get approved for most license and permit bonds with bad credit. However, it is more difficult to get contract bonds with credit issues.
