SURETY BONDS FOR ESTATE EXECUTORS
In Canada, the courts may request a ‘Surety Bond’ or ‘Estate Bond’ be provided before they will issue a Certificate of Appointment of Estate Trustee, commonly known as ‘Probate’. This bond guarantees that the estate trustee will faithfully perform their duties as the Administrator or Executor of the estate.
THE FCA PROCESS – STEP 1
To apply for an Estate Bond the following documents are required:
If a court has appointed you to administer the assets of a person who has passed away without a will, you may be required to provide an an administration bond.
Also known as a Committee surety bond, is specifically required for a person who is appointed by a court to manage the estate of a person who has been declared incompetent. These are also known as Conservator surety bonds or Curator surety bonds.
If you have been appointment to oversee the affairs of a minor child, the court may require you as trustee to have a Guardian Bond.
If you live outside the jurisdiction of the court overseeing the estate (e.g. you live in BC, but your mother who passed away lived in Ontario and named you executor), you will need a foreign executor bond.
