Which Surety Bond in Idaho Do You Need?

There are three types of Idaho surety bonding that can be required of you:

  • License bonds needed for many professions such as contractors and auto dealers to operate legally.
  • Contractor bonds for public construction projects.
  • Court bonds required by the courts for various purposes.

It’s important you understand how surety bonds work and that you're responsible to pay claims in full, which makes it vital to find a bond company that will defend you from claims.

    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 Idaho

    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 Surety Bonds Cost?

    Surety bonds generally cost 1-15% of the required bond amount. Costs vary significantly 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 bond quote.

    Can You Get Idaho Surety Bonds 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.
