What Is a New Jersey Contractor’s License Bond?

In New Jersey, depending on the county, town or municipality you work in as a contractor, their may be local codes and statues governing contractors’s license bond requirements. The State of New Jersey requires contractor’s license bonds for certain contractors to be held prior to undertaking construction services. The bond generally ensures that the contractor will comply with all required codes and laws. The State of New Jersey, or another local agency, will be named as the oblige on the bond, but a contractor’s license bond must be obtained from an insurance company licensed to write surety bonds in New Jersey that is qualified and up to date with all codes and laws. If they fail to meet these standards, the bond pays their liability.
