Frequently Asked Questions
How Much Does a Surety Bond Cost in Arizona?
The cost of any Arizona surety bond is not a fixed sum. Rather, it’s a combination of the type of surety bond you are applying for, its amount, and your own financial standing and stability.
When determining the rate or premium of your bond, sureties consider the amount of your bond. This amount is the total coverage amount that your particular bond can offer to obligees in the case of a claim. Bond amounts vary greatly from state to state, such as those for license and permit bonds, or depend on a contract in the case of contract bonds.
Sureties take the amount of your bond as the starting point. They then assess you as an applicant. Most often, their first job is to look at your personal credit score. Applicants who have a high credit score and a healthy financial standing are usually offered a standard market rate, which is between 1%-4% of the total amount of their surety bond. This rate is the cost of your bond.
Often, applicants who wish to further influence their rate positively can present personal or business financials, especially if these demonstrate that their business is sound and stable.
To find out more, consult our surety bond cost guide. It contains further valuable information about how cost is determined and which other factors are taken into account. Have a look!
Arizona Bad Credit Surety Bonds Program
Many sureties tend to turn down applicants who have a low credit score, or those who have no credit score at all. This is due to the higher risk and potential liabilities involved in bonding such persons.
We at Lance Surety Bonds have designed our Bad Credit Surety Bonds program in order to offer a way out to those businesses who are otherwise unable to get bonded.
Getting an Arizona surety bond through our program means that you will be offered a higher rate, between 5%-15% of the total amount, but you’re still sure to receive the best and lowest rate possible for your situation.

Types of Arizona Surety Bonds
Surety bonds in Arizona are of three main types - license and permit bonds, contract bonds, and court bonds. We underwrite all three types of Arizona surety bonds.
License bonds are those bonds which many Arizona businesses need to obtain in order to get their business license. Arizona auto dealers, mortgage and freight brokers, but also contractors, collection agencies and insurance brokers are some of the businesses who need to get bonded.
These bonds are meant to guarantee that licensed businesses will perform business in accordance with Arizona state regulations. In this way, Arizona license bonds serve to protect the public and the state in case that a licensed and bonded business breaks the law.
Contract bonds are those bonds which Arizona contractors need to get when they want to bid on a project in the state of Arizona, or are about to start work on a project. Before they can bid or perform on construction jobs, contractors need to be licensed and have a license bond.
Once they are licensed and bonded, contractors will often be asked to obtain the necessary Arizona contract bonds before they can do any work on a project. These bonds are required for most state and federal projects, yet many private construction project owners also require their contractors to get bonded.
Court bonds are those bonds which a number of Arizona courts may request from individuals before they are granted certain rights or are permitted to appeal a judgment.
For example, fiduciaries will often be required to obtain a fiduciary bond before they can assume the role of guardians or trustees. Appellants may also be required to obtain a bond before their appeal of a judgement is given way.
