License Bonds

Many types of individuals and businesses require licenses to operate per state or federal requirements. As such, the state or federal entity will also require a License Bond to go along with the license (or as a requirement of holding the license). Licensees are required to maintain their license and their Bond from year to year by the state. If the licensee fails to uphold the terms of his license, he or she may lose such license and face a possible claim or claims on their License Bond.

A License Bond is also generically called a surety bond. The term "Surety Bond" is used to describe many different types of Bonds including License Bonds. License Bonds are three party agreements. The parties are:

  • Principal, or Licensee - primary person or entity who will beperforming a contractual obligation per his or her license.
  • Obligee - party who is the recipient of the obligation.
  • Surety - ensures (guarantees) that the principal's obligations willbe performed. Sureties are similar to (sometimes divisions of) insurance companies.

Via this agreement, the Surety agrees to uphold, for the benefit of the obligee, the contractual obligations of the licensed Principal, if that Principal fails to demonstrate its obligations under their license to the obligee. A License Bond is provided to induce the state (obligee) to license the Principal. For example it demonstrates the credibility of the license applicant.

The license applicant will pay a pre-determined premium, which is paid annually in exchange for the Surety's financial assurance extension of its Surety credit. If a claim is filed on the License Bond, the Surety will generally investigate it in detail prior to payment of any such claim. If it is determined to be a legitimate claim, the Surety will pay the claim as required. The Surety will then require the principal to reimburse them in the amount paid as well as legal fees incurred in the process.
