Types of Surety Bonds in Utah

Businesses and individuals who need license and permit bonds in order to obtain their license can get theirs with us – we underwrite all types of commercial bonds in Utah.

Contractors who need to obtain construction bonds can also do so through us. Whether they need a bid, performance, or payment bond, we can issue them all, and others to licensed and bonded contractors.

Finally, applicants can also get Utah court bonds if a state or county court has asked them to obtain one of these bonds.

Learn more about all of these bonds in the expanded sections below.

Utah License & Permit Bonds

Most states require a majority of the businesses in the state to get licensed. This often entails getting bonded as well. Which businesses need to get licensed and bonded is typically determined on a state level. Bonding amounts are also most often fixed on a state level, although some bonds have the same amount in all states.

Most Utah businesses need to get licensed and bonded, too. By getting bonded, these businesses guarantee to their clients that they will comply with Utah state’s regulations. Bonds also enable customers to take measures against businesses who act in dishonest ways, and to receive financial compensation for the losses they may have suffered.

Among the most common license and permit bonds are the Utah auto dealer bond, the Utah mortgage broker bond, and freight broker bonds. All other commercial bonds are also available to our customers, and are usually approved quickly.

Utah Construction bonds

Licensed and bonded contractors in Utah will often be required to obtain one or more construction bonds. These bonds are requested by project owners when contractors bid or work on a project. Federal, state, and public projects almost always ask contractors for construction bonds.

Construction bonds guarantee that contractors will perform their work according to the project's requirements, and in total compliance with Utah state regulations for contractors. Whenever this is not the case, project owners can file a claim against these bonds and receive compensation.

Utah Court Bonds

Our customers can also obtain Utah court bonds with us. These bonds are typically obtained by applicants who have been requested by a county or state court to do so. They apply to cases when an individual appeals a court case, or is appointed as someone’s fiduciary.

Surety Bond Cost in Utah

The cost of your surety bond is determined on the basis of the type of bond you need and its amount. The bonding amount is the maximum coverage that a bond guarantees to its obligees. The cost of the bond, on the other hand, is only a percentage of that full amount. The cost is sometimes also referred to as the bond premium.

Whenever someone applies for a bond, sureties consider their application and assess them on the basis of a number of factors, in order to determine a cost for the bond. Personal credit score is one of the most important factors in determining the cost of your bond.

Before making a final decision, sureties also take other factors into account, including:

  • An applicant’s business and personal financial statements
  • An applicant’s liquidity and asset profile
  • An applicant’s industry experience

After careful consideration, sureties offer their rates. As a rule, applicants who have high credit scores are offered a premium between 1%-4% of the full amount of the bond.

Those who have a lower or bad credit score don’t receive the lowest rates, as there is more risk involved in bonding such applicants. Some may even be turned down by sureties who do not wish to assume such a risk.

Bryant Surety Bonds has plenty of experience in underwriting bonds for bad credit applicants. Our Bad Credit Surety Bond Program is specifically designed to accommodate and serve their needs. Under this program, we underwrite bonds at rates between 5%-15% of the full bonding amount.

Regardless of their credit type, our customers are guaranteed to get their bond backed by one of our expert surety partners at the lowest possible rate.
