Who can use a performance bond template?
Either a developer who wants security from a contractor on a construction project or a bank or other party that gives the performance bond.
What is a performance bond for?
A performance bond is a an undertaking to make a payment. It is given by a bank or insurance company to a developer who may make it a condition that the contractor obtains this security. Usually it is for 10% of the contract price. The developer can call for payment under the performance bond if the contractor becomes insolvent or defaults under the contract.
You need this document if you are a developer wanting to protect your project against non-performance or insolvency by a contractor.
What are the main issues for a performance bond?
The main issue is whether the performance bond is “on demand” or “conditional.” In other words, can the developer call for payment under the bond if something goes wrong or does the developer have to prove the amount of their loss before a call can be made?
Our performance bond template is an ‘on demand’ bond, but with some documents being required before payment is made.
