Surety & Fidelity Bonding

Bonding provides financial guarantees for business and individuals that protect third parties from suffering a financial loss due to the inability to perform or meet certain obligations. Cecil W. Powell & Company has been doing just that for over seventy-five years with some of the strongest financial carriers in the world. That strength and security is more important now than ever.

Cecil W. Powell & Company offers the following types of Surety & Fidelity Bonds:

Notary Bond

This bond guarantees to the state that commissioned the bonded notary for damage to third persons resulting from the failure of the principal to faithfully perform the duties of a notary public.

Bid Bond

This bond guarantees that if a contract is awarded to the principal, the principal will sign the contract within a specified time after the award and that the principal will furnish the required performance and payment bond.


This bond guarantees that the contractor will perform in accordance with the contract. In public jobs it may guarantee the payment for materials and labor supplied by subcontractors. In private jobs it typically only benefits the owner.


This bond guarantees payment to subcontractors or suppliers from the general contractor.


Guarantees the contractor will maintain the quality of his or her work over a period of years. One year (after substantial completion of the project) is built into most performance and payment bonds. If the maintenance clause is for more than two years additional underwriting and expenses are involved.


This bond is used when a contract is awarded by a public entity to a contractor to supply some type of material and it guarantees the contractor will deliver the goods at the agreed on pricing.

Commercial - This broad category of bonds includes fidelity, tax, loss security, public official, license and permit bonds.  These types of bonds generally guarantee compliance with specific state statutes or obligations.    

The bond department is staffed by a dedicated group of individuals who assist our business clients, attorneys, and financial institutions in writing these financial guarantee instruments.
