What is a surety bond?
A surety bond is a three-sided contractual agreement guaranteeing that a business or individual will fulfill their obligations under a contract and in accordance with business regulations. The three parties involved in the surety bond agreement are the obligee (the party requesting a surety bond), the principal (the party obtaining the bond) and the surety (the surety company backing the surety bond financially).

This percentage is different for every applicant and it is based on different factors, such as the type of bond you need, your credit score, financial statements and more.
