There are various fees associated with bonds. Please contact the Bonds Management team or Please consult the Building and Development Fee Schedule for associated fees.
A Substitute W-9 form is required when cash escrow is submitted as collateral (a bond). It is an IRS form that provides taxpayer information to the county so that interest on the cash bond may be reported to the IRS. A Substitute W-9 form is only required if you are submitted a CASH bond and is not needed for corporate surety bonds or letters of credit. The Substitute W-9 form can be found here.
For the Erosion and Sediment Control Bond, simply obtain a new bond meeting the county’s requirements and submit it along with a new Grading Permit Application with the new owner’s information to Building and Development. For a Performance Bond you must submit an executed Addendum to Performance Agreement – New Owner and the new collateral. Substituted surety must be of equal or better preference. This means that if the original collateral was a corporate surety bond, the county will accept another corporate surety bond, a letter of credit or cash escrow. If the original collateral was a letter of credit, another letter of credit or cash escrow may be substituted. Cash may only be substituted for cash. New letters of credit or corporate surety bonds must meet the county’s standards found in the Facilities Standards Manual Section §8.303(A) and (C). Find out more about substitutions here.
