The Securities Division of the Stafford County Department of Public Works is responsible for administration and management of securities. Securities, also referred to as bonds or sureties, are funds provided to the county by developers and builders to cover the cost of public improvements associated with development projects should the builder fail to complete the required improvements.

Stafford County requires residential and commercial developers to provide securities to ensure completion of certain public improvements within residential and commercial development projects in accordance with approved development plans, current county standards and specifications, and the Stafford County Developer Security Policy

Types of Securities
Developer securities are required for the construction of development projects including subdivision and commercial projects. Security fees are determined by the developer's engineer during the plan review process and are subject to the county's review. 

Building lot securities are required for construction of individual single family detached and attached residential lots and townhomes to ensure completion of the yard and compliance with county erosion and sediment control requirements.

Securities must be posted with the Securities Division prior to issuance of a building permit or the beginning of construction of a development project. Securities may be posted using cash, certified checks, letters of credit, or surety bonds.
