    Chapter 23: Distribution of assets in kind

      Section: 3B:23-30: Bond when the personal representative is holder of a determinable estate

           When the personal representative is the holder of a determinable interest referred to in N.J.S. 3B:23-28, he shall, before receiving the personal property into his possession, file a bond with the clerk of the Superior Court or the surrogate of the proper county, as the case may be, unless the will provides that no security shall be required of him.

The bond shall be in the amount of money or the value of the property to be received, with two sufficient sureties, conditioned for the faithful conservation of the property.

Until the bond is filed, the personal representative may not receive the moneys or property, but the court may appoint some other proper person to receive and administer the money or property as trustee upon giving security for the faithful discharge of his duties as the court may deem proper.
