Oregon Landscape Contractor License Surety Bonds

WHO NEEDS TO OBTAIN AN OREGON LANDSCAPE CONTRACTOR LICENSE SURETY BOND?

The Oregon Landscape Contractors Board (LCB) licenses and regulates landscape contractors in the state of Oregon. Contractors must obtain an Oregon Landscape Contractor License Surety Bond and submit it to the CLB as part of their licensing. Bond amounts vary and depend on the job size of the projects being performed by the contractor:

  • $3,000 surety bond – if performing projects at $10,000 or less
  • $10,000 surety bond – if projects are more than $10,000 and less than $25,000
  • $15,000 surety bond – if the projects are more than $25,000 , but less than $50,000 or the business is a probationary business
  • $20,000 surety bond – if the projects are $50,000 or more

HOW DOES AN OREGON LANDSCAPE CONTRACTOR LICENSE SURETY BOND WORK?

Oregon Landscape Contractor License Surety Bonds guarantee that the principal (contractor) complies with all statutes in Oregon Revised Statutes 671.520 – 671.997 that govern landscape contractors, and protect against unlawful actions by the principal. If the principal does not comply with the terms of the bond, a claim can be filed with the surety company for relief.  If the claim is valid, the surety will pay up to the penal sum of the bond to resolve the claim. The principal is then required to reimburse the surety for all monies paid out, including any attorney fees incurred.

WHAT IS THE FINE PRINT OF THE BOND?

Oregon Landscape Contractor License Surety Bonds renew on an annual basis. The term for the bond with the state is indefinite and remains in full effect until canceled by the surety or depleted by claims paid. The surety may cancel the bond at anytime by giving 30-days written notice to the LCB of the state of Oregon. The liability of the surety for the aggregate of all claims that may arise under this bond may not exceed the amount of the penal sum of the bond.
