- The obligee is the project owner requiring the bond to ensure the quality of work done is maintained for a specific period of time.
- The principal is the contractor who purchases the bond as a guarantee that the project will be maintained.
- The surety is the underwriter that issues the bond, thus guaranteeing that the project quality will be satisfactory.
Maintenance bonds protect against:
- design defects
- workmanship faults
- other resulting problems
Maintenance bonds are only valid for a limited time and only protect against problems that emerge during that time. If a problem arises during the term as outlined in the bond, the obligee can file a claim against the bond. If the claim is valid, the surety will make sure the problem is remedied or else pay appropriate financial compensation up to the bond amount.
