If you need a contractor license and permit bond, also known as a compliance bond, Meadowbrook Direct is your one-stop solution. States, counties, and cities require these bonds from contractors and construction-related companies. These bonds guarantee the contractor will comply with various building codes and can, depending on the municipality, make broader guarantees, including some sort of completion clause.

Government agencies require that business owners transacting in specific industries purchase a bond before becoming legally licensed. These bonds, called statutory license and permit bonds, protect consumers by guaranteeing that businesses will adhere to regulations set forth by federal, state, and local government agencies.

Public official bonds guarantee that a civic or federal employee will act honestly and faithfully while engaging in the duties of a public official. These bonds protect taxpayers and ensure that fees, fines, and other expenses levied for non-compliance are recovered.

In addition to these surety bond types, Meadowbrook Direct sells:

  • Court & Litigation Bonds.
  • Probate & Fiduciary Bonds.
  • Various types of miscellaneous surety bonds.

A Court Bond is a guarantee required by Statute or Court Order for the benefit of another person, company, public, state or federal entity, otherwise known as the Obligee. They are filed in connection with litigation by a Principal as specified by the Court. The Principal can be the Appellant, Plaintiff, Defendant, or anyone who seeks Court Intervention. The bond protects the Obligee from loss as a result of the ensuing litigation.

A Fiduciary is someone who, under jurisdiction and supervision of a Court, administers property held in trust. The Fiduciary is generally required by law to provide a Surety Bond. This guarantees faithful performance and compliance with Court Orders. A Surety Bond does not serve as coverage for the fiduciary, but rather as protection for the heirs, incompetent, creditors, etc.

Miscellaneous Bonds are a category of bonds that do not fit into any recognized division or category of fidelity or surety bonds, and is therefore placed in its own miscellaneous category. This category for surety bonds covers “everything else”. Most bonds that fall into this category are hazardous and will require financial statements and excellent credit history.
