What is a Bond Claim?

A bond claim in the construction industry, also known as a construction bond claim, is a demand for payment by a subcontractor, supplier, or laborer who has not received due compensation for completed work on a construction project. This is often linked to a surety bond, which is a type of construction bond that works to ensure that subcontractors and suppliers get paid. This claim aims to reduce financial risks, securing parties involved against potential contract defaults or failures. For example, if a general contractor fails to pay a subcontractor for their provided services, the subcontractor can file a bond claim against the contractor's surety bond to recover their funds. It is a legal recourse that assures fair payment and ethical business practices within construction projects.
