What is a Subdivision Bond?
A subdivision bond is typically purchased by a landowner or developer when upgrades and/or changes are required by a local government authority. It guarantees the work is completed according to the terms set forth. In the agreement with the city, township, or municipality.
Examples of Subdivision Bonds
- Street improvements (grading, paving, curbs, gutters)
- Storm drains
- Water mains
- Erosion control
- Subdivision monumentation
These bonds provide financial assurance that the landowner will find and complete improvements through parcel land development.
Key parties involved in subdivision bonds:
- Principal: the landowner/developer
- Obligee: the city or municipality
- Surety: the underwriter of the subdivision bond
A percentage of the engineer’s estimate for improvement costs are used to determine the subdivision bond amount. Subdivision bonds renew annually until a point at which the public entity requiring the bonds provides a release of the bond obligation to the surety.
