Getting Contract Bonds for Public 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 whatâ€™s needed to get surety bonds for public construction projects.
Getting Court Bonds in Colorado
Court bonds arenâ€™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 Surety Bonds Cost?
Surety bonds generally cost 1-15% of the required bond amount. Surety bond costs vary drastically depending on the bond amount you need and your rate (which is the percentage of the full bond amount you must pay). 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 Colorado Surety Bonds with Bad Credit?
Itâ€™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 regardless of your credit situation. However, it is more difficult to get contract bonds with credit issues.
