Home inspector bond cost
The Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development’s Corporations, Business and Professional Licensing section requires home inspectors to post surety bonds in the amount of $5,000.
These bonds are subject to underwriting, which means the price each applicant pays varies depending on a review of their credit report. With good credit, clients could pay as low as $100 for their bond! Bad credit? No problem! a history of helping 99% of all applicants get bonded quickly and easily.
Why this bond
By posting an Alaska home inspector bond, principals (inspectors) pledge to comply with all terms of AS 08.18 and pay all taxes and contributions due to the state and political subdivisions of the state, as well as pay all people who furnish labor or materials or rent or supply equipment to the inspector. If the principal completes negligent or improper work or fails to comply with these terms, the bond protects the state and contracted individuals from financial loss.
Home inspector bond details
Alaska home inspector bonds are run continuously from the date stated on the bond until the certificate of registration is revoked or otherwise terminated by the Department of Commerce. The surety can cancel the bond by sending written notice of cancellation to the department, and cancellation becomes effective 30 days after the postmarked date of the notice.
