Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Does a Surety Bond Cost in Colorado?

The cost of your Colorado surety bond is not fixed, but depends on a number of factors which are case-specific. When sureties determine the rate or premium that you have to pay to obtain a bond, they take into account the type of bond you are applying for and the amount of that bond. They further take into account a number of financial factors.

The amount of your surety bond is the amount of coverage that it offers the obligees if they file a claim against the bond. Bond amounts, such as those of most license bonds, vary from state to state or are determined on the basis of a contract, in the case of contract bonds.

Your premium is based on the full amount of your Colorado surety bond, and is a fraction or percentage of that full amount. When determining the exact percentage, sureties consider your personal credit score. Applicants with high credit score typically receive rates that range between 1%-4% of the total bond amount.

Presenting good personal and business financials as well as additional proof of financial and business stability is also a way of positively influencing one’s premium rate and lowering it further.

Check out our informative and thorough surety bond cost guide for further information on the subject!

Colorado Bad Credit Surety Bonds Program

Those applicants who have a lower credit score or are experiencing other financial and business struggles can get a Colorado surety bond, too! In order to meet the demand from such applicants, we have created our special Bad Credit Surety Bonds program.

Types of Colorado Surety Bonds

We are able to underwrite all types of Colorado surety bonds - all forms of license and permit bonds, contract bonds and court bonds. See below for more info about every type.

License bonds are the type of bonds that Colorado businesses and certain individuals need to obtain before they can get their business license in Colorado. Contractors, auto dealers, mortgage and freight brokers and many others need to get bonded in order to get licensed.

These bonds are put in place in order to guarantee that those licensed operate in accordance with the state and federal regulations for their license. They also protect the Colorado public and state in situations where this is not the case.

Contract bonds are the type of bonds that Colorado contractors may be required to obtain when working on certain projects. Most state and federal projects, as well as many private projects will require that contractors obtain the relevant contract bonds before they can enter a bid or begin work on a project.

These bonds serve as a guarantee that Colorado contractors will perform according to state regulations as well as a contract that they have with project owners or subcontractors and suppliers.

Court bonds are the type of bonds that certain individuals in Colorado may be requested to obtain before legal proceedings in a court can take place. Individuals who want to appeal a judgement by a Colorado court may, for example, be asked to obtain an appeal bond. Persons who are appointed as fiduciaries will often be asked to obtain a fiduciary bond.
