Subdivision Bonds

What is a Subdivision Bond?

A Subdivision Bond is a type of contract bond Land Improvement Bond, Site Development Bond, or a Developer Bond.  These bonds guarantee that improvements will be made and completed within a sub-divided property.  These bonds are required by local, state, or federal government.

How does a Subdivision Bond Work?

A Subdivision Bond may be required from a governmental entity to make improvements to a sub-divided property, typically within the new construction phase of a building project.  These improvements could be for sidewalks, landscaping, roads, and even sewage systems.  They are required for the betterment of a property.  These bonds can be required of land developers, builders, or even a private landowner.  These bonds typically have very specific guidelines that must be followed to complete the project.

How much does a Subdivision Bond Cost?

The cost of this type of bond is based upon the bond amount required by the project or land owner and the cost of the supplies/labor and completion of the work, including any guarantee periods.  A big factor in pricing is determined by the corporate financials and the personal credit report of all owners and spouses.  Someone with good credit may pay a lesser premium than a person with poor credit.  However, just because someone has poor credit does not mean we cannot help you.   At Universal Service Agency, we strive to find our clients the best rates with the strongest rated carriers to insure you are getting the best bond coverage available.
