Read on for the full picture of the different types of Mississippi surety bonds.

Mississippi License & Permit Bonds

Many Mississippi businesses need to get a license in order to be in compliance with state, local or city requirements. As a part of the licensing, you might be asked to get a license and permit bond.

The authorities that ask for a Mississippi surety bond include this requirement, in order to protect the general public from potential misuse and fraud that businesses might commit.

The bond acts as an extra guarantee that your company will act lawfully. In case you transgress from the applicable rules, an affected party can make a claim on your bond. Proven claims provide financial compensation to the claimant, up to the penal sum of the bond.

The most common Mississippi license and permit bonds are:

Mississippi Contract Bonds

Mississippi contract bonds are another type of commonly used bonds. They are required when you are bidding for private and public construction contracting work. Their application is project-based.

The goal of contract bonds is to safeguard the interests of project owners. They guarantee you will fulfill your contractual obligations, and will meet all necessary deadlines and quality requirements. The usual contract bonds that are needed for project bidding include:

  • Bid bonds
  • Performance bonds
  • Payment bonds
  • Maintenance bonds

Mississippi Court Bonds

For some particular cases, a state or local court might ask you to post a court bond. While these are not the most popular type of bonds, Bryant Surety Bonds can help you obtain them too.

The typical situations in which you would need a court bond include:

  • If you want to bring a court case to an appellate court, you might need to obtain a supersedeas bond, also known as an appeal bond.
  • A Mississippi probate court can require that you post a fiduciary bond if you are nominated as a fiduciary, which is a guardian of another person’s property or assets.

Surety Bond Cost in Mississippi

While the Mississippi surety bond amount that you are required to post might seem considerable, this is not your actual surety bond price. The bond amount is the maximum penal sum that can be repaid to affected parties on proven claims.

The surety bond premium, on the other hand, is only a fraction of this sum. It is called the bond premium and is usually between 1% and 4% for standard bonding market applications. If you are a Mississippi auto dealer who needs to post a $25,000 bond, you might end up paying only a few hundred dollars.

The specific bond premium for your case is set on the basis of certain personal and business indicators. Your surety examines your financial situation, and the stability of your business. The stronger your stats are, the lower your bond price will be.

The typical criteria that are considered are:

  • Personal credit score - very important
  • Business finances
  • Assets and liquidity
  • Professional experience.
