Types of Surety Bonds in Idaho

With us, our customers can obtain all types of license and permit bonds, contract bonds, and court bonds for the state of Idaho.

Many businesses in Idaho are required to obtain a license bond when they get their business license. Contractors licensed in Idaho will often be asked to obtain one or more contract bond before they begin work on a construction project there. Court bonds may be required of individuals appearing before an Idaho court for the needs of the court.

Idaho License & Permit Bonds

Like all states, Idaho requires many businesses to be licensed, through one of the state’s departments and agencies. Certain businesses will also be asked to obtain a license and permit bond as part of the licensing process.

These bonds are a form of guarantee, that the bonded individual or business will comply with Idaho state laws and regulations. If a bonded businesses’ customers are deceived or otherwise harmed financially, the license bond offers them legal recourse against the business. By filing a claim against the bond, claimants may receive financial compensation up to the full amount of the bond.

The Idaho auto dealer bond, the freight broker bond and the Idaho loan originator bond are among the most popular license bonds. We regularly underwrite all sorts of other license bonds as well.

Idaho Contract Bonds

Idaho contractors who are licensed and bonded will often also be asked to obtain contract bonds, also known as construction bonds, before they bid on a project contract or upon being awarded a contract.

Contractors are most often required to obtain these bonds when they work on a federal or state construction project, although some private project owners may also require bonds. What kind of contract bond a contractor must obtain depends on the conditions of the construction contract for a particular project. These bonds guarantee that contractors comply with the conditions of the contract, and with Idaho state regulations for contractors.

Idaho Court Bonds

In some cases, an Idaho court may request that an individual obtain a court bond. Of these, a supersedeas bond is sometimes required of individuals who appeal a court ruling in an appellate court. An individual assuming the role of someone’s fiduciary or guardian may be asked to obtain a fiduciary bond, another type of court bond.

Surety Bond Cost in Idaho

To get your Idaho surety bond, you’ll pay a surety bond premium. The amount of your premium will be determined on an individual basis by sureties.

Premiums are always a fraction of the total amount of the bond. This amount is the maximum compensation which a bond may guarantee to bond obligees. All bonds have different amounts, which are fixed on a state, local or federal level.

When determining the amount of your premium, sureties look at your personal credit score as their main reference. An applicant’s credit score is considered the best indicator of their financial stability.

Sureties also look at each applicant’s:

  • Personal and business financial statements
  • Asset profile and liquidity
  • Work experience and business history

Based on these factors and the credit score, applicants are offered a rate. Those who have a high credit score are typically offered a standard market rate between 1%-4% of their bond’s full amount.

For those whose credit score is lower, or who have no credit score, getting bonded is still within reach. Our Bad Credit Surety Bond Program allows such applicants to get bonded at a slightly higher rate, between 5%-15% of the full amount of their bond.

Thanks to our many expert surety partners, we can find the best rates for all our clients, regardless of their credit type. And because our partners are among the best companies in the industry, all applicants are still getting the best, most secure bonds on the market.
