What is a surety bond, and why do I need one for my Mobile, Alabama Contractors License?

A surety bond is a three-way agreement between the bond Principal (Person applying for an Electrical or Plumbing Contractors License), the Obligee (Mobile County License Commission), and the surety company backing the bond. A Contractors License Bond acts as a guarantee from the Principal that they (as well as their employees and/or agents) understand and agree to comply with all regulations, laws, and guidelines pertaining to their license, as well as the work they are permitted to perform. If they fail to do so or act fraudulently in any way, Mobile and the public are free from any liabilities that may arise.

This bond is issued at a flat rate in either 1-, 2-, or 3-year terms. The premiums are as follows:

  • 1-year - $100
  • 2-years - $175
  • 3-years - $250

The bond amount is $10,000 (the total amount that your surety backs the bond with).

This bond is required for any plumbing contractor or electrical contractor who wishes to engage in work for the City of Mobile. In the event that there are any claims made against your bond, your surety company will pay the initial damages to the injured party. You will be responsible to fully repay your surety, in addition to any associated fees. In the event of a claim, your surety company may revoke your bond. If this is the case, you will be unable to continue any work for the City of Mobile until you are able to file another bond.

If there is a claim made against your bond, your surety will handle the investigation to determine the best solution. If the claim is found to be false, you will have no interruptions to your business operations or any issues with your bond. it is very important that you avoid claims against your bond, as claims act as a mark against your "credit," and will influence any future surety bond applications you may submit. If you are unable to obtain a surety bond, you will be unable to perform work for the City of Mobile, Alabama, and most, if not all, other municipalities or public works projects.

I was shopping for a surety bond for the first time and having trouble communicating with several different companies. When I contacted South Coast Surety they responded quickly and performed the transaction quick and easy. I might have been able to find a lower price, but their professionalism was worth a couple extra dollars.

We are opening up a Mental Health Residential Treatment Center and needed a Surety bond since we will be handling some clients cash resources. I reached out to South Coast Surety, they sent me an application, paid our premium and had our bond sent to us immediately. Everyone I spoke to and emailed was courteous, attentive and responded very quickly. We will most definitely continue to get all of our bond services from South Coast.
