Who needs a health studio bond?
In the State of Alabama, health studios are required to obtain a surety bond to be in compliance with Alabama Health Studio Services Law found in Section 8-23-1 of the Alabama Statutes. Every health studio which sells contracts for health studio services to be rendered at a planned health studio or a health studio under construction shall purchase a security bond in an amount not less than $50,000, or shall file with the division an irrevocable letter of credit by a surety company or lending institution permitted to do business in the state.
What is the health studio bond?
The health studio bond protects the party requesting the surety bond, the Obligee, against any financial losses as a result of poor financial choices, damages, unethical decisions, or a failure to adhere to state and local laws on the part of you, the Principal. By obtaining your bond, you are telling the Obligee that you can be trusted and that you stand by your business decisions. Each person who sells health studio services in this state shall register with the Attorney General's Consumer Protection Division on forms the division provides. The person shall furnish the full name and address of each business location where health studio services are sold as well as any other registration information the division deems appropriate.
The Alabama health studio bonds are also known as: Alabama health club bond, fitness bond, fitness club bond, and health club bond.
