Hi, Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. Has the client said what form the security deposit needs to take? Does it have to be with a bank? Would they accept a charge over the materials for example? Kind regards AJ

Sorry I was typing from the train yesterday. They want insurance bond ?
Expert:  Alex J. replied 1 year ago.

Thank you. The easiest to obtain this is to go to an insurance broker but obtaining this bond is going to be an added cost. Have they already paid you the money?
