Welcome back. We are here to talk more about bonds and what they are. Though you may be confused about a bond and whether or not you need one, don't worry. Contact our estate planning attorney in Raleigh NC for help. We can assist you with all estate planning aspects. There's no need to work on this alone.
There are two types of bonds. One is called a property bond. The other is called a surety bond. Here you'll find what each type are used for:
- Property bonds are more commonly used in criminal matters and may not be allowed by many Clerks of Court.
- A surety bond is most commonly used for estate and guardianship matters. If the estate matter remains open for more than one year, the surety company issuing the bond may require the premium to be paid once per year until the estate administration can be completed.
The Clerk of Court has broad powers in estate matters. The Clerk, at his or her discretion, may require a bond to be posted even if the bond requirement is waived by the heirs or even if there is a will which waives the bond.
