How does a Fresno California Encroachment Permit Performance Bond work?
A surety bond ensures the project’s completion in the event of a permittee’s default.
There are three parties to the bond, namely:
Principal – contractor or permit applicant
Obligee – County of Fresno, State of California
Surety – the party who will guarantee the completion of the contract to the Obligee
If a permittee failure happens, the obligee will declare the permittee in default. The obligee can then file a bond claim to recover the amount needed to finish the job.
The surety will first investigate if such default exists. If it does, the claim will be settled.
