How does a Larkspur California License/Permit Bond work?
A Larkspur California License/Permit Bond is a three party instrument. The parties involved are as follows:
- Principal – the license or permit applicant
- Obligee – the City of Larkspur, California
- Surety – the party who will issue the bond
The Principal is the party who’s required to post this bond and fulfill the obligations stated in this bond. The Obligee is the party who’s requiring the bond. The Obligee is also the party to whom the Principal and the Surety will be indebted to in case of a default.
The role of the Surety is to assure the Obligee that the Principal can indeed fulfill the obligations required. Since the Surety has partnered with the Principal, the Surety will be responsible for any violations that will be committed by the Principal as well.
When such happens, the Obligee will file a claim against the bond. The Surety will first check if the claim is covered by the conditions of the bond and if it is valid. If the claim is proven, the Surety will settle it, then ask for a reimbursement from the Principal later on.
How much does a Larkspur California License/Permit Bond cost?
The cost of this surety bond is called bond premium. It’s the amount that the license or permit applicant must pay the Surety. Bond premiums will depend on the credit score of the applicant.
