Let’s make sure you’re covered in the event your contractor fails to meet their obligations.

Coughlin Performance & Completion Bonds

Common in industries like construction and real estate development. A performance bond is issued by one party to contract to the other party as a guarantee against the issuing party's failure to meet their obligations under the contract, or to deliver on the level of performance specified in the agreement.

In the case of a construction project, a performance bond may compensate the client if the contractor fails to complete the project. A payment bond insures against the risk of the contractor not paying their subcontractors, who could then sue the project's owner. There are three parties to a performance bond:

The Obligee

The Obligee is the company, individual or governmental entity who will be the recipient of the work. A city who will be having roadwork done by a contractor might have a performance bond to make sure the work is finished to specifications.
