Utility Deposit Bonds

Businesses and individuals opening new utility accounts may be required to provide a deposit to obtain electric, water, or gas services. In lieu of a deposit, customers can purchase a utility deposit bond to be filed with the utility company (i.e. BG&E, PEPCO, Delmarva Power & Light, and Potomac Edison).

Motor Vehicle or Trailer Dealer Bonds

New and used motor vehicle dealerships must purchase a bond ranging from $5,000 up to $300,000. The bond amount is determined based on the type of dealership (new, used, wholesale, etc) and the number of vehicles sold per year. The full schedule can be found on the Maryland MVA website.

Employee Dishonesty and Janitorial Bonds

Employee dishonesty bonds protect business owners and their customers from theft of property by employees. This bond type is most often needed for businesses that perform services on their customers’ premises, such as, janitorial services companies, home improvement contractors, and home health providers.

License and Permit Bonds

Businesses in specific industries must purchase a bond to operate, including health clubs, franchisors, and mortgage lenders.
