Can I get a $5,000 surety bond if I have bad credit?
Applicants with bad credit are usually subject to more stringent underwriting consideration. However, since $5,000 surety bonds do not pose a huge financial risk for bonding companies, the majority of applicants will be able to get bonded without any problems.
If you work to improve your credit score, and clear past due items from your credit report, you can gradually see your bonding costs go down.
