The surety will be the party who will issue the bond and will extend its credit to the principal. The surety backs up the principal by promising the principal’s fulfillment of the contract to the obligee.

If the principal fails to complete the project or violates the pre-determined contract, the obligee will file a claim against the bond for monetary compensation. If the claim is proven, the surety will ensure that the obligee is rightfully compensated.
