Online Surety Bonds, 25% less. Shop Now!

Welcome to Meadowbrook Direct

Surety bonds are contracts between three parties, and the purpose of the contract is to guarantee that one party performs the duties laid out in the contract. The three parties involved are the:

  • Principal: the person who owes an obligation and who posts the bond
  • Obligee: the person to whom an obligation is owed
  • Surety: the company that guarantees the obligation will be fulfilled

If the principal defaults, the surety company either pays the claim or fulfills the obligation and the principal then owes the surety company for the claim. The major benefit is that it ensures the work will conform to the rules and regulations that govern it, and the obligee takes no risks and incurs no losses.

Bond Resources

Surety can be confusing and is often misunderstood. It’s usually thought of as insurance because most companies are also insurance companies. It’s actually closer to credit or a loan than it is to insurance. In our resource center, you will find information, FAQs, and links that will help you understand and navigate the world of surety.

The Need for a Surety Bond

While they are sometimes used to guarantee that a financial debt will be paid, they can also be used to ensure that a principal:

  • Meets the terms of a contract
  • Fulfills certain obligations on timer
  • Complies with certain laws or regulations
  • Performs duties honestly and faithfully

Types of activities that often require bonding include regulated or licensed business activities, court orders and public official duties, and administering property that’s held in trust.
