Construction Bonds

Construction Bonds are a type of surety bond that protects against disruptions or financial loss if the contractor fails to complete a project or fails to meet specific specifications of a contract.

Road and Sewer Bonds Explained Simply

Construction Bonds are a type of surety bond that protects against disruptions or financial loss if the contractor fails to complete a project or fails to meet specific specifications of a contract. Bonds ensure that a construction project’s bills will get paid. 

Used widely in the construction industry, a construction surety bond is used as a credit instrument that binds the contractual obligations between all parties. Surety bonds give assurance for financial security by providing owners and developers with the confidence that their contractors will perform according to the terms of the agreement.

There are multiple types of Bonds available, but they all have in common a basic principle of how they function:

Bond Agreements: Tri-Party Contract Obligations:

Commitment from the DEVELOPER to construct the roads / sewers to the Beneficiary’s (Adopting Party) specification and the technically approved design, and the obligation to pay the bondsman for the bond.

Commitment from the BENEFICIARY (Local Authority / Water Company) to the bondsman and developer to adopt the infrastructure once constructed to their approval and all associated obligations satisfied.

Commitment from the BONDSMAN (Insurer) to pay for any outstanding or unsatisfactory works if the developer defaults on their obligations within the agreement.

I contacted Jacqui to compare quotes on warranty companies for the conversion of the existing house into three flats. The flats all have separate entrances and the basement level has a lightwell.  I found Jacqui to be very forthcoming with information, updating me regularly with correspondence she had received from the warranty companies and a delight in general to talk to. We now go to compariqo for comparisons for all warranty companies on any new developments we have coming up.”

Wow thank you for sorting this so promptly. You have saved me a lot of time & anxiety.



Excellent, prompt service and we will definitely be using you again during our next build.  Both Steve and myself were impressed from our initial contact with Jaimie through to completion.

Jaimie explained in detail the insurance suitable and immediately emailed the contract for us to read. No sales pressure and responded when answers were required.

So, thank you again to you and your team at Compariqo.
