What is a completion (refundable) bond? (Known as a cash bond)

The completion bond is a guarantee that final inspections will be completed for the project. Once the project is completed and closed, this cash bond will be refunded to the payer, 3 to 5 weeks after final inspections are completed. All inspections have to be called in with permit number and scheduled by a designee of the permitted project to avoid forfeit/loss of the completion bond refund. The Village does not automatically set up inspections. (Refer to actual permit placard for permit number and phone number to call for inspections.)
