Subdivision Bonds

Subdivision bonds are used to guarantee improvements such as roads or utilities being installed as part of land development for new residential or commercial lots. A road or sewer put in by the real estate developer will become the responsibility of the municipal entity as their asset from that time forward.

As part of the development approval process, the public authority will require a subdivision bond to guarantee installation of these public improvements for their benefit and for the benefit of the future residents.
