Contractor’s Bond in Midland, Texas

City of Midland

What is a Contractor's Bond?

A contractor’s bond is a legal agreement between contractors, insurers, their clients, and the public. If a contractor does not meet local government regulation standards or complete work as agreed, the contractor’s bond can guarantee that they provide financial compensation. This surety bond works as insurance for anyone who hires contractors to build or renovate, preventing fraud or losses incurred from the contract not being completed as agreed. The contractor has a financial obligation if they do not fulfill the contract or if they don’t meet regulations.

The city of Midland Department of Building Inspection requires a bond of $10,000 for two years to issue permits for building and renovating in the area. TMD Surety Bonds can provide the legally required contractor’s bonds for insuring your business or contracting service when operating in Midland.

How Does a Contractor's Bond Work?

The bond is issued by an insurance company — the surety — between the contractor and the client. The contractor is the principal — the bonded company responsible for paying the bond if the contract fails. The client is the obligee who requires the contractor to be bonded and will be compensated if the contract fails. The contractor buys the bonds, but it is also paid by the client if it is incorporated into the costs of the deal. This protects the client and the public, as work that does not meet local building codes and regulations can be a danger to the public.
