New Hampshire Executor Bond

Legislators in New Hampshire enacted new legislation concerning executor bonds. The new legislation is named HB 609 and states that when a person dies testate (with a valid will) and there is no surviving spouse leaving an only child as the sole beneficiary and administrator of an estate, a bond will not be required of the only child; this type of bond is meant to guarantee that the deceased’s will shall be carried out properly; in a case with an only child it’s not necessary to have a surety bond because there’s no threat of other beneficiaries in the will being deceitful.
