Contractors who will be performing sidewalk and/or curb contracting work in Hartford, Connecticut, must be licensed and bonded with a $10,000 surety bond. The surety bond requirement is as per 31-65 of the Hartford Municipal Code (found on page 19).
Obtaining this license and permit surety bond will be the easiest part of your licensing process and will take a few minutes.
The $10,000 Hartford sidewalk and curb contractor bond is obtained by completing a short surety bond application – which we’ll take from you over the phone – and paying the premium of $100. The bond is thereafter issued to you immediately. There is no credit inquiry nor underwriter review for this bond; you are automatically approved for this bond.
Once issued, a copy of the bond can be emailed to you. The original copy, which you will sign as Principal, will be mailed to you by the following business day.
It is ideally the original surety bond that you will want to sign and file with the city of Hartford.
This surety bond, with a $100 premium, has a standard term which will end on December 31st of the year in which it is issued.
This surety bond can be prepaid for up to 3 years (term will still end on December 31st of the final year) which will offer you a savings over renewing annually.
The prepayment options are:
The bond is a financial guarantee which holds the city of Hartford harmless for all work done, which in turn causes harm, for a period of 2 years after the completion of the work performed.
As stated within the wording of the surety bond, this includes both defective materials and defective workmanship.
