Surety Underwriting Expert Analysis

Sureties decide to bond contractors on a case-by-case basis.  A surety and its underwriting process may be blamed by any number of parties when problems arise for a contractor.  Without a clear understanding of the underwriting history and practices, parties involved in such a dispute are likely to waste time and money.
