  • Surety Bonds: The South Carolina Contactor’s Licensing Board can now accept a surety bond in lieu of a financial statement for both renewals and initial applications. An applicant can provide a surety bond in the amount of two (2) times the net worth requirement for the Group Level applied for. For example a General Contractor Group 5 would require a surety bond in the amount of $500,000. The new law can be viewed here: Statute 40-11-262; the net worth requirements can be found here: Statute 40-11-260. You should check with an insurance provider to find out if they have the ability to write the bond based on the requirements of the statute. Download and provide the approved: Surety Bond Form for General Contractors / Surety Bond Form for Mechanical Contractors to the insurance company for completion, to be submitted along with their power of attorney form. The Surety Bond Claim Form can be found here.
