Required Surety Bonds in California

There are three broad categories of California surety bonds—construction and contractor bonds, license and permit bonds, and court bonds. There are also multiple types of surety bonds within each of these categories.

California Construction & Contractor Bonds

The state and individual cities or counties may require contractors to obtain a surety bond as a condition for bidding on or being awarded a public works project. These include bid bonds, performance bonds, payment bonds, maintenance bonds, and other construction-related surety bonds.

California License & Permit Bonds

License bonds are often required by a state or local agency as a condition for obtaining a license or permit to operate a business within the jurisdiction. For example, construction contractors in California must purchase a $15,000 surety bond before a license will be issued by the Contractors State License Board. In addition, both the state of California and municipalities may require contractors to obtain a permit bond before being granted a permit for certain projects.

California Court Bonds

California courts at every level may require a person appealing a court decision or taking on fiduciary responsibilities to have a court bond. For example, a bond is typically required before a person can serve as an executor of an estate, guardian of a minor, or custodian of an adult.
