How does the Kansas Home Inspector bond work?

Kansas Home Inspector bonds must be issued by an insurance carrier admitted by the Kansas Department of Insurance. The insurance company issuing any surety bond, such as the Kansas Home Inspector bond, will also be referred to as the "surety company" or the "bond company". The business is referred to as the Principal, the surety bond company as the Obligor and the State of Kansas Home Inspector Registration Board as the Obligee.

The surety company provides the Obligee a guarantee (the surety bond) that the customers, vendors and employees of a licensed business will receive payment for financial damages due to a violation of licensing law up the bond amount stated on the bond form ("penal sum"). The bond company also directly receives claims from the public and determines the validity of claims. Ultimately, the licensed business owners are responsible for their actions and required by law to reimburse the surety company for any payments made under the bond or face indefinite license suspension.
