Surety is the guarantee of the debts of one party by another. A surety is the organization or person that assumes the responsibility of paying the debt in case the debtor policy defaults or is unable to make the payments. This ensures that the person(s) hired has the amount of money and resources needed to complete the job.

The cost of a surety bond in Nevada will vary depending on the type of bond and the amount of coverage needed. Typically, surety bond premiums range from 1-15% of the total bond amount.

Most of the time, surety providers require full upfront payment to be made before they issue a bond. Companies will offer financing for high-risk principles with poor credit scores.
