Persons who obtain a permit for work that would include installing utilities, turn Lanes, signals, etc may at times be required to provide a right away bond. These are normally governed by a local municipality that is responsible for maintaining the public highways and roads. The bond itself is pretty straightforward and simply guarantees that the person who obtained a permit will comply with the terms of that permit. These bonds are typically small amounts but are not always the case depending on the scope a work and municipalities that is requiring the bond. In general these are fairly easy to obtain and if the bond is a small amount will only required a completed application and may not require a credit check.
