"A Contractor's Bond must be in place before CSLB can issue an active license, reactivate an inactive license, or renew an active license. (Business and Professions Code Section 7071.6).
The bond is filed for the benefit of consumers who may be damaged as a result of defective construction or other license law violations, and for the benefit of employees who have not been paid wages that are due to them."
The bond is a contract between the contractor, the Surety company, and the State of California, ensuring that the contractor will comply with the CA's Contractor's License Law.
