The Surety's Job: Protection

The purpose of a surety is to protect public and private interests against financial loss. Therefore, the surety bonding company must be profitable and must have a strong balance sheet. No one is likely to accept the guarantee of a party with a bad name or a weak balance sheet. The surety bonding company guarantees performance. Its good name and balance back up that guarantee. Probate bonds, notary public bonds, court bonds, license and permit bonds and public official bonds all guarantee protection of public interests from finacial loss. Why has corporate surety become such a vital part of doing business in today's econonic society? Because there is no alternative for protecting public and private interests from financial loss.

Probate Bonds

A probate bond is essentially the same as an estate bond, executor bond, or fiduciary bond. When a person dies, usually a will is left. The probate bond, purchased by the will executor, ensures that the wishes of the deceased as expressed in the will are carried out ethically and honestly. Probate is the court-supervised process of gathering the deceased person’s assets, paying debts and taxes, and distributing what’s left to inheritors. Unless family members or creditors are fighting, there’s very little court supervision. Mostly, probate is paperwork.
