What is a surety bond, and why do I need one for my Nevada Excavation Permit?

A surety bond is a three-way agreement between a Principal (The individual applying for a Nevada Excavation Permit), an Obligee (City of Reno), and a surety company (the company backing the bond). It acts as a protective measure for the Obligee, in the event that the Principal fails to follow the guidelines set forth by their permit and bond. If the Principal violates this agreement, the Obligee has no liability for any financial losses or damages. A surety bond does NOT act like insurance for the Principal - they guarantee that there will be payments made out in the event of any damages, but will pursue the Principal for the full amount of the damages after settling a claim.

The yearly amount of a Reno Excavation Permit Bond is $5,000, but this is not what the Principal will pay. The prices for this bond are as follows:

  • 1 year - $115
  • 2 years - $201.25
  • 3 years - $287.50

This bond does not require a credit check, and will be issued within 1-3 days of your completed application submission.

In, during the course of your permitted excavation work in Reno, there are any damages or liabilities that occur, Reno and the public are free from any financial obligations. Your surety company will make initial payments to the damaged party, at which point you will be required to repay the full amount to your surety, including any associated fees. It is very important that you and your employees understand the terms of your permit and your surety bond, and to avoid claims against your bond. In the event of a claim, your surety company may revoke your bond. If this happens, your permit will be invalid until you are able to file a new bond.

A claim against your bond acts like a mark against your “credit,” and a history of claims against your bond will complicate any future applications. Just as it is very important to follow the terms of a permit you are issued, you must do the same to maintain your surety bond.

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.

On the same day, I received the Evidence of Coverage. Could not ask for better pricing or better service. I highly recommend South Coast Surety to meet a wide range of Bonding needs.
