***Premium Prepayment Options***
Your bond may be prepaid up to 3 years which offers you a savings versus renewing annually. The bond's standard renewal is on the anniversary of its issuance.
Premium prepayment options and savings are as follows:
The Cleveland master plumber bond is required to ensure your compliance with regulations made by the City of Cleveland Department of Building and Housing.
The bond serves as a financial guarantee that you will conduct plumbing work according to the city’s Building Code; that work will begin; that work begun will be completed; and that the city of Cleveland will be held harmless for any substandard plumbing work which may cause harm.
The protections offered to the city by means of your master plumber surety bond extend also to any employees whom you hire, as also any subcontractors.
But since the bond is not an insurance policy, if a claim were filed against your bond and paid by the surety, it is in turn your financial and legal obligation to reimburse the surety in full. By ‘in full’ we mean any costs and fees involved in the settlement of the claim made against you.
