A surety bond is a legally enforced contract that binds three entities together.
-The principal is the person, professional or business that purchases the bond.
-The obligee is the person or government agency that requires the bond.
-The surety is the agency that issues the bond.
Each surety bond that's executed provides a financial guarantee that the principal will fulfill the terms outlined in the bond's legal language.
