Required Surety Bonds in VermontVermont is no different from other states in requiring three main categories of bonds: construction bonds, license bonds, and court bonds. Although there are a few bonds that don’t fit neatly into one of these categories, the vast majority do. We can provide many other types of bonds, so don’t hesitate to contact us with any specific needs.
Vermont Construction BondsIn Vermont, constructions bonds, such as bid bonds, performance bonds, and payment bonds, are typically required by municipalities, not at the state level. Local governments often require surety bonds as a condition for bidding on or being awarded a public works contract. These bonds are intended to protect the municipality and taxpayers against financial loss due to the actions of a contractor. They can include but are not limited to:
- Bid bonds. A bid bond guarantees that a contractor will accept the contract if it is awarded to him. Learn more.
- Performance Bonds. A performance bond guarantees that the contractor will complete the project in its entirety, in compliance with the terms of the contract and applicable laws and regulations. Learn more.
- Payment Bonds. A payment bond guarantees that the contractor will pay suppliers, workers, and subcontractors in a timely manner, as specified in the contract. Learn more.
Vermont License & Permit BondsIn Vermont, relatively few businesses must be licensed at the state level. Those that do, however, may also be required to purchase a license bond as a condition of licensing. The most common business licenses required are for retailers selling liquor or tobacco, investment advisors, mortgage lenders and brokers, and motor vehicle dealers. Anyone applying for a license for the first time or renewing a license in one of these fields will need to obtain or renew a license and permit bond. These bonds guarantee that the business will operate in a lawful and ethical manner. This protects both the state and consumers against financial loss due to the deliberate or negligent bad acts of the licensee.
Vermont Court BondsVermont courts at any level can require bonds. They are most often required for:
- Appeals. Plaintiffs or defendants involved in an appeal may be required to obtain a bond in order to guarantee that any court decision ordering the return of property or payment of damages and court costs will be obeyed. Learn more.
- Fiduciary Roles. The court may require a bond to guarantee that court-appointed custodians, guardians, trustees, or executors carry out their fiduciary duties in accordance with the law and the terms of their appointment. Learn more.
