Payment & Performance Bond Claims
Payment and performance bonds are essential to the construction industry. These bonds instill confidence that all parties will perform and get paid, and they provide legal remedies in the event that a property owner or contractor fails to meet its contractual obligations. While most payment and performance bonds expire without execution, when a contractor fails to perform or a subcontractor or supplier demands payment from a property owner, filing a bond claim can be essential to avoiding unnecessary liability and mitigating the risks of costly and protracted litigation.
