What is a Surety Bond?

A surety bond is a three-party written agreement to guarantee compliance, payment, or performance of an act.

  • The Principal purchases the bond and agrees to perform an act as promised.
  • The Surety guarantees the principal's obligation will be performed.
  • The Obligee receives the benefit of the bond (often a government organization).
