Executorship/Estate Court Bond

What is an Executorship/Estate Court Bond?

An Executorship/Estate Court Bond is required of an executor of an estate and guarantees the executor will administer the estate according to the court and state laws.  This is typically required of an heir of the estate and is court appointed. 

How does an Executorship/Estate Court Bond Work?

This type of Surety Bond guarantees that the person handling the financial and fiduciary affairs of an estate is ethical and honest while handling all the affairs for an estate.  The bond amounts can be increased or decreased as the value of the estate, trust, or benefits change.  The amounts may change annually.  These bonds are billed annually and may require an annual accounting report to the court requesting the executorship.  There will also be a requirement of listing of the assets and heirs involved.

How much does an Executorship/Estate Court Bond Cost?

The cost for an Executorship/Estate Court Bond is typically based on the credit history of the person who will be in charge of an estate.  The best measure for quoting will be based on the personal credit history of the executor or assigned representative of the estate that is required to post the bond.  Should an applicant be considered borderline, we may need to review personal financials or possibly a resume to secure a quote. At Universal Service Agency we specialize in placing clients in any circumstance that may present itself from “superior credit” to “less than perfect credit” and everything in between.
