California Grading Permit Surety Bonds

Projects requiring the excavation, export or import of soil as part of a grading or building project typically require a grading permit surety bond to provide security to the city or county that the work will be performed and in accordance with local codes, ordinances and grading and building permit plans.  These bonds require a release from the requiring entity and as such require the bond premium to be paid annually until a written release is tendered.

How much does a California Grading Permit Bond cost?

Depending on the credit of the applicant, you can expect to see a bond premium of 1-1.5% for applicants with acceptable credit.  As stated above, this will be an annual premium that is due until the obligee releases the bond in writing.
