An Executor Surety Bond is a bond that is required by a probate court when a person has been appointed through a will to handle the estate of the deceased. To receive this bond, you must provide a copy of the will. The purpose of the bond is to ensure the proper administration of the estate.
An executor bond is very similar to the administrator, conservatorship, guardianship, and trustee bonds, with the following differences.
The cost of the Executor Surety Bond is based on personal credit. Our markets require that your FICO to be 650 or above. Surety1 only runs a soft inquiry on your credit, meaning that the pull will not affect your credit score.
To process your bond, we’ll need a copy of the proposed order from the court that specifies the bond requirements and amount. You must also provide a copy of the will.
