What is a West Virginia surety bond?

If you are new to the topic of surety bonds, our “What is a Surety Bond?” page is a good starting point. In brief, a surety bond is a three-party agreement between: an obligee, a principal and a bonding company.

Surety bonds are frequently required from businesses as a prerequisite to obtaining a license or a permit. They serve as an extra layer of protection: if a business uses fraud or unethical business practices, they can face a claim on their surety bond.
