California Payment Bond

Surety Bond

Amounts vary by obligee or job owner

This bond will require a bit of paperwork at first. We try to make the process as simple as possible. Of course this is dependent upon the size of the project and complexity of the bond. These kind of bonds encompass both construction and non construction projects.

Jane Bond Insurance Agency is participating Small Business Administration Agent. The SBA now guarantees these bonds up to 10MM. The process is rather straight forward. The general turnaround time is between 5 - 10 business days on large projects.

Payment Bond:

A payment bond guarantees the owner that subcontractors and suppliers will be paid the monies that they are due from the principal. The owner is the obligee; the “beneficiaries” of the bond are the subcontractors and suppliers. Both the obligee and the beneficiaries may sue on the bond. An owner benefits indirectly from a payment bond in that the subcontractors and suppliers are assured of payment and will continue performance. On a private project, the owner may also benefit by providing subcontractors and suppliers a substitute to mechanics’ liens. If the principal fails to pay the subcontractors or suppliers, they may collect from the principal or surety under the payment bond, up to the penal sum of the bond. Payments under the bond will deplete the penal sum. The penal sum in a payment bond is often less than the total amount of the prime contract, and is intended to cover anticipated subcontractor and supplier costs.


General Note: Contract bonds can take anywhere from 24 hours to several days to obtain. Realistically, expect 5 - 10 days.
