Frequently Asked Questions
How Much Does a Surety Bond Cost in Texas?
Your Texas surety bond cost is highly dependent on the type of bond you are required to obtain. Some bonds have the same bond amount nationwide, while the cost of others is determined for each individual case, in accordance with the regulations in the state of Texas, pertaining to this particular type of surety bond.
Do not forget that the total bond amount is not equivalent to your bond’s cost. Your bond’s cost is a fraction of the total amount. This fraction or percentage is called a premium.
What matters most in determining your surety bond cost or premium is your personal credit score. Other important cost determining factors are your personal and business financials, whether you have cash on hand and even your industry experience.
Applicants with good credit score are typically offered a premium at standard market rates which is between 1%-4% of the bond’s total amount.
Texas Bad Credit Surety Bonds Program
Applicants with less than perfect credit can also apply for most surety bonds in Texas. Such applicants are usually offered a slightly higher premium due to the higher risk involved with bonding them. Premium rates under our Bad Credit Surety Bonds program are between 5%-15% of the total amount.
Regardless of the rate you are receiving, all our Texas surety bonds are provided by some of the best surety bond companies in the industry.
