Types of Surety Bonds in Virginia

Whether you need a Virginia license bond, a Virginia contract bond, or a Virginia court bond– we can underwrite all of these for you!

When getting licensed in Virginia, many businesses will be required to obtain a license and permit bond. In order to participate in construction projects, Virginia contractors will often need to obtain Virginia contract bonds. Virginia court bonds are also available to those of our applicants who have been ordered by a Virginia court to get bonded.

Review the sections below for particular information on all of these different types of bonds.

Virginia License & Permit Bonds

Many Virginia businesses will be required to post a Virginia license bond (or Virginia commercial bond) when they apply for their business license. These bonds are part of every state’s rules and regulations regarding business licensing.

They are required in all states, although sometimes state regulations may differ as to which businesses need to get bonded and which don’t. There are also bonds which apply for certain businesses nationwide, though there may be individual differences as to their bonding amounts – such as auto dealer bonds, and mortgage broker bonds.

Virginia license bonds are put in place in order to protect both the state and the public, as well as individuals. They do so by securing financial compensation by a surety, which is available in cases of fraud, malpractice, and other instances in which businesses do not comply with state regulations for their license. In other words, Virginia license bonds guarantee that businesses will perform according to regulations, industry standards, and best practices.

Among our most popular Virginia license bonds are the Virginia auto dealer bond and Freight broker bond. All other types of Virginia license bonds are also available and we regularly underwrite them for our clients. To find out how to apply, and how much your license bond will cost, scroll down for more information.

Virginia Contract Bonds

When Virginia contractors become licensed and bonded they can begin working on construction projects in the state. Often these projects, especially public projects, will require contractors to obtain the necessary Virginia contract bonds. These bonds protect the bond’s principals, which can be the state or private owners, by guaranteeing that contractors will perform in accordance to state regulations as well as contract conditions.

Therefore, in order to bid on such projects, work on them, or perform maintenance work, contractors are often required to obtain Virginia bid bonds, Virginia performance bonds, or Virginia payments bonds, to name a few.

Virginia Court Bonds

There are also instances in which individuals may be requested by a court to obtain a surety bond. These bonds are called court bonds, and are required in one of the following cases:

When an individual in Virginia wants to appeal a court judgement, he may be required by the Virginia appellate court to obtain a supersedeas– or appeal– bond before the appeal can proceed. Alternatively, an individual in Virginia who is about to become a fiduciary, or guardian of someone’s assets or property, may be required by a Virginia probate court to obtain a fiduciary or guardianship bond.

Surety Bond Cost in Virginia

To obtain a Virginia surety bond, you will need to pay a surety bond premium. This surety bond premium is the cost of your bond, which is a percentage of the total amount of the particular bond you are applying for.

A bond’s amount is its penal sum– the amount of its coverage or compensation which can be offered to obligees. All bonds have different amounts, which are fixed either by state regulations or on a federal level.

When determining the premium rate for a surety bond, sureties will consider an applicant’s personal credit score as one of the factors to base their decision on. Personal credit score is considered a good indicator of how financially stable applicants are. Sureties will usually also take into account a number of other factors, such as:

  • Financial statements

  • An applicant’s industry experience

  • An applicant’s assets and liquidity

  • Other financial indicators

Those applicants whose credit score is high are offered standard market rates by sureties. These rates are usually between 1%-4% of the total amount of their Virginia surety bond. Keep in mind that the exact amount depends on the type of bond that you want to obtain.

But there are also those applicants who have a low or even bad credit score. They, too, can get bonded with Bryant Surety Bonds. Often sureties will not agree to bond such applicants because they are perceived as too risky to bond.

However, through our Bad Credit Surety Bond Program this problem is resolved. We have devised this program with some of the best sureties in the industry, in order to make it possible for bad credit applicants to get bonded, though at slightly higher rates. Premiums under this program are between 5%-15% of the total bond amount. Regardless, all our clients are guaranteed to receive the best available rates on their bonds, no matter their credit score.
