A surety bond is a three-way agreement between a Principal (the individual applying for a Whatcom, Washington On-site Sewage Pumper License), the Obligee (Whatcom County Health Department), and a surety company (the company financially backing the bond). This bond acts as a guarantee to the Obligee that the Principal understands and agrees to comply with all rules, regulations, and laws pertaining to their licensure. Your On-site Sewage Pumper License is bound to the regulations defined in the Whatcom County Code, Chapter 24.05. In the event that you fail to follow these regulations, Whatcom County and the general public are free from any financial obligations that may arise. It is extremely important that you understand the requirements of your license, as this bond protects Whatcom County in the event that you do not.

This bond does not require underwriting, and therefore does not require a credit check. Your bond can be issued as soon as you complete your application and finalize payment. The bond expires on December 31st and must be active for the entire duration of your license.
In the event that there is a claim made against your bond, your surety company will pay the initial damages to the aggrieved party. You will then be required to repay the full amount to your surety, including any associated fees. Your surety may revoke your bond at any time, especially in the event of a claim. If your bond is revoked, your license will be invalid until you file a new surety bond.
Claims against your bond act as marks against your "credit," and will cause issues during any future applications. Therefore, it is very important for your license and future business that you avoid claims by adhering to your license requirements.

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.
