A. A bond is a form of insurance to replace assets that may be mismanaged or stolen by the executor or administrator (the estate's
personal representative). The cost of the bond is paid from the assets of the estate.
A bond may not be required if the decedent's will admitted to probate waives a bond and the court approves.
If the decedent's will does not waive bond, or if the decedent died without a will, the law ordinarily requires the personal
representative to give a bond approved and ordered by the court. However, all persons eligible to receive a share of the estate
may waive the requirement of a bond. If they all waive bond and the court approves, the personal representative will NOT have
to give a bond.
If bond is not ordered by the court, and the estate suffers loss because the personal representative fails to properly
perform the duties of the office, the loss or some part of it may not be recoverable from the personal representative.
If so, your share of the estate may be partly or entirely lost.
You may waive the requirement of a bond by signing this form and delivering it to the petitioner for appointment of a personal
representative or to the petitioner's attorney. Your waiver cannot be withdrawn after the court appoints the personal
representative without requiring a bond. However, if you sign a waiver of bond, you may later petition the court to require a bond.
A guardian ad litem or other legal representative with specific authority under law to waive bond must sign for a minor, an
incapacitated person, an unascertained beneficiary, or a designated class of persons who are not ascertained or not yet in being.
See Judicial Council forms DE-350 and DE-351 and Probate Code section 1003.
I have read and understand paragraphs A through G above.
I understand that before signing this form, I am free to consult with a lawyer of my choice concerning the possible
consequences to me of waiving bond.
I understand that I do not have to waive bond to allow the estate administration to begin or proceed, or to receive my
share of the estate.
