The New Castle County Department of Land Use requires sewers and drain cleaners to obtain a $10,000 surety bond as one of the conditions of licensing.
The bond form used shares that of other contracting entities, including Classes, A, B, C, U, and HVACR contractors.
The bond term ends on December 31st and begins on January 1st. Because of the bond’s very small premium, just $100, it is not prorated for less than $100, regardless of when during the year it is purchased.
You are automatically approved for the $10,000 New Castle County sewer and drain cleaner bond. There is no credit inquiry. Again, the premium is just $100 annually.
When you call us, we’ll ask you the name exactly as it should appear on your bond. We’ll also ask you other basic questions: your address, phone number and email.
After payment of the $100 premium, your bond is issued to you immediately. In the mail, you’ll receive two items which you’ll need to file with New Castle County.
The first is the bond form, which you’ll sign as Principal. The second is the Power of Attorney form.
Filing for your bond and Power of Attorney form are at the following address:

New Castle, DE 19720
