Questions about Surety Bonds in Virginia
How much does a surety bond cost in Virginia?
The price you end up paying to obtain a surety bond depends on two numbers. The total bond amount is a sum determined by the state, or other authority governing your bond. It signifies the maximum amount a bond holder might be ordered to pay, if a claimant files a successful claim against them. The total bond amount is determined on a state, local, or municipal level, and is different for each surety bond.
Business owners are not required to pay the full bond amount in order to get bonded. Instead, they pay what is called a bond premium in exchange for the surety underwriting the bond. The surety assumes a risk when underwriting each bond, meaning that lower-risk candidates will pay the lowest premiums.
The main way in which sureties measure what risks an applicant poses is their personal credit score. Good credit score usually means premiums of between 1% and 4%.
Surety bond companies, however, will also consider additional factors, such as financial strength and resumé. Check out our “What Does a Bond Cost? page to get even more insights into what you can expect to pay for your surety bond.
Can I get a Virginia surety bond with bad credit?
We discussed how your risk level is the main predictor of your premium. Some sureties may be unwilling to get an applicant bonded if they have bad credit or other credit issues, because they feel they are assuming a risk that’s too high. Others will write the bond, but will raise the applicant’s premium significantly to compensate for the risk.
Lance Surety Bonds works with America’s strongest bond providers, meaning that we can help applicants get bonded in nearly all cases. Premiums for an applicant with bad credit will go up to between 5% and 15% of the total bond amount.
How to get bonded in Virginia
The process of getting bonded isn’t complicated at all. Lance Surety Bonds offers an easy way to submit your application online. It takes no more than a few minutes and after you submit it you will get a bond quote based on your credit score.
Shortly after you submit your application, we will contact you to let you know what further documentation we need to make your application complete. When everything is completed, we will send you the original copy of the bond, which you can use as necessary.

Types of Surety Bonds in Virginia
It’s important to point out that not all surety bonds serve the same purpose. Based on their intended purpose, surety bonds are separated into three distinct categories:
License bonds, or license and permit bonds as they are sometimes called, are an important requirement for many businesses as a prerequisite to obtaining a license. Once a business is bonded, a claim can be filed against them if they violate the bond agreement, which in most cases is set to protect the clients of the business.
Construction bonds (also referred to as contract bonds) can be required when a contractor works in a public project in Virginia. They make sure taxpayer money are protected in case the contractor defaults on or breaches the contract. In some cases, private projects may also require construction bonds. There are several different types of construction bonds that may be required all at once, so be sure to learn more about them.
Court bonds, the third category, are necessary under different scenarios. Appeal bonds, for example, might be required if you are appealing a court judgement. An individual who is appointed fiduciary or guardian by a probate court, might also have to get a court bond to guarantee proper and honest conduct.
Lance Surety Bonds has expertise when it comes to all three types of surety bonds, and we guarantee that your bond will always be accepted by the obligee or we refund your money.
