The Contractor Bond in Saraland prevents damages that are caused by a contractor’s actions. Contractors are obligated to follow the Saraland Code of Ordinances, as it applies to their license and/or permit. Essentially, the ordinances set a standard for conduct that prevents fraudulent and negligent behavior and reduces hazards. A contractor who fails to adhere to the standards of the Code, particularly Chapter 7, may be subject to disciplinary action from the City. Action against a contractor may include penalties, fees, or a claim against the Contractor Bond.
It is likely that a contractor is aware of a complaint or violation prior to a claim filing. A customer may bring up an informal or formal complaint, which can be resolved by the contractor at any time. If the complaint or violation is not corrected, the City or the customer who was injured can file a claim to be reimbursed for the correction of the issue.
If you receive a claim on your Saraland Contractor Bond, get in contact with Jet right away. Our team will check the validity of the claim, but if the City files the claim, it is likely that the allegation is valid. Jet will pay the claimant after an investigation finds that the claim is true. Unlike an insurance policy, you are required to take responsibility for your actions and pay Jet back for the claim.
Contractors working in Saraland must follow the regulations set by the City, but may also need to abide by the state’s requirements. Contractors may need to have a surety bond for their state contractor license if the company’s financials are not sufficient.
