Types of Surety Bonds in Minnesota

We offer all types of Minnesota surety bonds. These include Minnesota license bonds, Minnesota contract bonds, and Minnesota court bonds.

License bonds– also called commercial bonds– are those bonds that businesses need when they are applying for their license in the state of Minnesota. Contract bonds are required of contractors who are already licensed and bonded, and wish to work on construction projects within the state. Court bonds are required by state courts in a variety of courtroom situations– when you are appealing a ruling or when you are becoming a fiduciary.

Read on for more information on these different types of bonds.

Minnesota License & Permit Bonds

The state government of Minnesota requires a variety of businesses to obtain a business licence before they can do business. When getting licensed, many businesses also need to obtain a license and permit bond, sometimes called a commercial bond, and submit it to the relevant state authority.

Which businesses need to get bonded, and which don’t, is determined by the state. Some bonds, such as auto dealer bonds and freight broker bonds, are required in all states, with few exceptions.

The requirement for getting bonded, such as the amount of the surety bond (also known as the penal sum of the bond), also vary from state to state, and from bond to bond.

License bonds are are a guarantee that licensed and bonded businesses will comply with state regulations, and all rules pertaining to their particular type of business. They thus serve as protection, through financial compensation, to customers and the state in cases where regulations are not complied with, and businesses act dishonestly.

The freight broker bond and the Minnesota auto dealer bond are among the bonds that we receive the most applications for. We also underwrite the whole range of other license bonds required in the state, at great rates. Find out more about the cost of the bond and how to get bonded below.

Minnesota Contract Bonds

Contract bonds are required of licensed and bonded Minnesota contractors who have been hired to work on a construction project in the state. They are also relevant to those who wish to participate in a bid on a project, and in a number of other cases.

The purpose of these bonds is to provide a guarantee to project owners that bonded Minnesota contractors will perform in accordance with state regulations, as well as the conditions set forth in the construction agreement.

Minnesota Court Bonds

Some Minnesota courts may require appellants to obtain court bonds when appealing a ruling. At other times, when a fiduciary is appointed by a court, the court may require that person to obtain the respective type of court bond to guarantee their trustworthiness.

Surety Bond Cost in Minnesota

The surety bond premium, or rate, is the cost of obtaining your Minnesota surety bond. It is a percentage of the total amount of your bond.

This total bond amount, or penal sum, is the maximum amount of compensation that your surety may extend to the bond’s obligees, if there is a claim against your bond.

When setting the rate at which you can get your bond, the surety usually checks your personal credit score first. In order to determine your rate, sureties need information about your reliability and financial stability, and credit score has proven to be a very efficient indicator of these. Your surety will likely also look at your:

  • Personal and business financial statements
  • Asset profile
  • Overall work record
  • Industry experience

Respectively, those applicants with a high-to-perfect credit score are given lower rates on their bond. If you have a high score, you can expect your premium to be somewhere between 1%-4% of the full amount of your bond.

But just because they don’t have a perfect score, doesn’t mean applicants with credit troubles are out of luck. If you have a low score, you can apply through our Bad Credit Surety Bond Program, and get the same high-quality bonds offered to everyone else.

This program has been specifically developed for low-credit applicants, giving them the chance to obtain a bond at a rate between 5%-15%, slightly higher than standard market rates.

Our surety bond cost calculator on the right can give you an idea of how much it may cost to get your bond. Or, you can get an accurate and entirely free quote by submitting a surety bond application for the bond you need.
