What Is a Kansas Surety Bond?

Many Kansas businesses, as well as individuals in certain positions, need to get a Kansas surety bond to comply with the law.

Surety bonds serve an important purpose: to protect the state and the general public from unlawful activities. When you get bonded, there are three parties involved. Your business (or yourself) is the principal required to obtain the bond. The authority that asks for the bond is the obligee. Finally, the surety is the entity that underwrites the bond and provides backing for you.

The three main types of Kansas surety bonds that you are likely to need include:

  • License bonds are needed when you want to obtain a professional license to operate legally. Typically, freight brokers, auto dealers, mortgage brokers, and similar professions are required to get such a bond. It guarantees their legal compliance.

  • Contract bonds are often required from construction contractors when they want to participate in public or private projects. The bonds safeguard the interests of the project owner, guaranteeing that contractors will complete the work on time and up to quality standards.

  • More rarely, a Kansas court may ask you to post a court bond. The typical cases when you would need this type of bond are if you are appointed as a fiduciary, or if you are appealing a court case to a higher instance.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a Kansas surety bond cost?

Your Kansas surety bond cost depends on the amount that you are required to post. This amount can be the same across the country, can vary based on your location, or can even be determined individually.

Your bond price is called the bond premium, and it is not the same as the bond amount. It’s only a few percentage points of it, usually between 1% and 4% if you quality for the standard bonding market.

When you apply for a bond, your surety examines your personal and business finances, including your credit score and assets. It assesses the risk of getting you bonded. Your bond premium is lower when your finances are solid.
