What Is a Utah Surety Bond?

A wide array of Utah businesses are required to obtain a Utah surety bond, so that they can comply with state regulations and operate legally.

Surety bonds are required in order to safeguard the interests of the state and its citizens, from misuse and fraud by individuals and businesses. In practical terms, they are a contract between three parties. The bonded entity is the principal, the authority that requires the bond is the obligee, and the bond provider is the surety.

There are three main types of Utah surety bonds, which you might have to obtain in different situations:

  • Oftentimes, if you want to get a business license, you will be asked to post a license bond. It ensures auto dealers, freight brokers, mortgage brokers, and other such professionals will abide by state regulations in their field.

  • Construction contractors who want to participate in project bids need to get contract bonds. The goal is to guarantee that they will fulfill their contractual obligations, and will perform the work in time and according to high quality standards.

  • In some cases, a Utah court might require you to obtain a court bond. The usual situations in which you would need one include if you are appealing a judgment to a higher instance or if you are assigned as a fiduciary, i.e. guardian of another person’s assets.

If you are prepared to launch the bonding process, you can locate the Utah surety bond that you need in the table just below. You can also browse through the full list of bonds in the states at the end of the page.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a Utah surety bond cost?

Your surety bond cost depends on the Utah surety bond amount you need to obtain. In some cases, the amount is the same across the US, but in others, it is determined by your local authorities and might even be set individually for each case.

The price that you have to pay in order to get bonded is called the bond premium. It is only a fraction of the bond amount. Usually, the percentage is between 1% and 4% for standard bonding market.

The actual percentage that you will need to cover is determined after your surety assesses your financial stability. The surety will need to examine your personal credit score, as well as other financial factors. Your bond premium is set on the basis of the risk involved in providing you with a bond. The more stable your finances are, the lower your bond price will be.

Can I get a Utah surety bond with bad credit?

At Lance Surety Bonds, we have extensive experience with underwriting all types of Utah surety bonds. That’s why we know how difficult it is for bad credit applicants to obtain the bond they need. Our Bad Credit Program is here to help.

If you have a low credit score, liens, past bankruptcies or civil judgments, you can take part in the program and get a bond premium of 5%-15%. The higher percentage compensates for the increased risk in bonding. Nevertheless, you can be sure you are getting a top bonding rate. We work with a number of A-rated, T-listed surety companies, which allows us to choose the best matching bonding option for your specific case.
