Administrator Bonds

What is an Administrator Bond?

An Administrator Bond is posted by the court appointed administrator of an estate. The surety bond ensures the estate settlement duties are handled according to the provisions of the will and the legal requirements of the jurisdiction. An Administrator Bond is similar to an Executor Bond in function but is required to handle estates where an individual either died without a will or did not have an executor. Administrator bonds may also be required when the appointed executor has died, been removed or declines to serve.
