Failure To Obtain Required Bond Could Bar Claims

By Tim Gordon

Today, in Tarco, Inc. v. Conifer Metropolitan District, 213 COA 60, a division of the Colorado Court of Appeals held that a general contractor’s failure to provide the bond required by C.R.S. § 38-26-106 on a public works project does not necessarily bar the general contractor from brining a claim against the owner for payment.  Still, failing to obtain the requisite bond is risky.
