A Surety Bond protects against malpractice and fraud.  Most surety bonds are considered a three-party contract between the principal (business owner or other professional), the obligee (consumer or government entity) and the issuer (the surety).  The bond is a financial guarantee that the principal will always act in accordance with laws, with integrity, honesty and financial responsibility, and act in compliance with the mutual terms of a contract.  The bond will cover any damages or losses when the contract is not completed according to terms.
