What is the City of North Ridgeville Contractor’s License Bond?
The City of North Ridgeville Contractor’s License Bond is a surety bond required by the City of North Ridgeville Building Department as part of the contractor’s license application. This bond guarantees that the licensed contractors will meet their license requirements and adhere to North Ridgeville coding ordinances.
A licensed contractor that fails to adhere to the regulations of their license or commits a fraudulent/illegal act can cause injury to a consumer. If this happens, the injured party can file a claim against the contractor’s bond. If the surety company determines the claim is valid, the surety will compensate the injured party for their loss up to the bond amount of $25,000.
The principal on the bond (the contractor) is financially responsible for reimbursing the surety for claims paid out, including additional fees and expenses incurred. The principal’s financial obligation to the surety ensures they follow the laws and regulations of their trade.
Who has to get this bond?
