Types of New Hampshire Surety Bonds
If you are new to surety bonds, it’s useful to learn more about each bond category. There are three main ones you need to know about:
- License bonds: for businesses looking to obtain a business license in New Hampshire
- Construction bonds: for contractors bidding and working on certain construction projects.
- Court bonds: for specific occasions when a state court may require them.
At Bryant Surety Bonds, we’re experts at underwriting all three categories. Let’s take a more detailed look at each one of them.
New Hampshire License and Permit Bonds
License and permit bonds (also known as license bonds or commercial bonds) are one of the most common ways of regulating different businesses. When you apply for your business license in New Hampshire, you may be required to post a license bond to ensure your business is compliant with state laws and regulations. The license bond will also offer protection to your customers against fraudulent business practices. A customer who feels they have been treated unfairly can launch a bond claim and demand compensation.
Some of the most commonly required license bonds in the state are New Hampshire auto dealer bonds, auctioneer bonds and real estate broker bonds. All freight brokers need to post a freight broker bond regardless of their state of operation.
New Hampshire Construction Bonds
States want to protect taxpayer money and their construction investments, and they use construction bonds for that purpose. Public projects– especially large ones– frequently require contractors to post different types of construction bonds before they can work– or even bid– on a project.
Bid bonds are one type of construction bonds, which a contractor needs to procure when bidding on a project, guarantee they will accept the project for the bidded price, if they are awarded the contract. Performance and payment bonds, on the other hand, protect the project in case of contractor default. Subcontractors, laborers, and suppliers are also protected under that bond.
New Hampshire Court Bonds
Court bonds are relatively less-frequently required. There are two main types of court bonds:
- Appeal bonds, or supersedeas bonds, if you want to appeal a court judgment in front of a higher instance.
- Fiduciary bonds if you are appointed a fiduciary of another person assets or property.
Surety Bond Cost in New Hampshire
Applicants frequently asked how the price of their surety bond is calculated. To answer this questions, you need to learn about two numbers: the total bond amount and the bond premium.
The total bond amount listed on each bond is the maximum dollar amount for which a claim can be made against that particular bond. Each state decides the total bond amount for each bond.
When applying for a bond, you are never asked to post the full amount. Instead, the same way insurance works, a bond premium is required to obtain the bond. The higher the risk an applicant poses to the bond provider, the higher their premium will be.
This risk is calculated mostly using the applicant’s personal credit score. You may choose to submit additional information that can bolster your application and reduce your premium. Such information includes:
- Personal financial statements
- Business financial statements
- Liquid assets
- Rich industry experience
Standard market rates for New Hampshire surety bonds is between 1% and 4% of the total bond amount. Bad credit bonding is tougher, but thanks to Bryant Surety Bond’ Bad Credit Program you can still get bonded. To compensate for the higher risk, sureties will offer quote between 5% and 15% of the total bond amount. Our experts can provider some insider tips on reducing your premiums even if you have bad credit.
