Most Florida surety bonds are simple compliance. License and permit bonds, public official bonds, court bonds and miscellaneous surety bonds are the major categories of this class. Bonds under $50,000 generally require submission of only a completed commercial surety bond application for quoting. Larger surety bond requests and those bond obligations that contain financial gaurantee provisions will require submission of personal and business financial statements. Damaged credit? New resident in the U.S. without a credit history? No problem! We offer non-standard programs to fit your need.
