How Does A Surety Bond Work?

Learn the surety bond basics. A surety bond is a third-party guarantee. It is a promise by a surety or guarantor to pay the obligee (who is requiring the bond) or the principal’s client a certain penal amount if the principal (who is applying for the bond) fails to meet some obligation, such as fulfilling the terms of a contract. So, how does a surety bond work? The surety bond works by protecting the obligee or principal’s client against losses resulting from the principal’s failure to meet the obligation. Note that a surety bond does not protect the principal.
