What is a guarantee bond?

A guarantee bond is an insurance policy which you must purchase before being awarded a deputyship order. The cost of the bond is on a sliding scale and depends on the value of the estate. The bond will cover the costs of the deputy acting fraudulently – i.e. using the estate’s assets for his or her own purposes or absconding with the entirety of the estate.
