Probate/Transfer Indemnity Bonds
Probate Bonds (also known as Transfer Indemnity Bonds) can help you take control of your inheritance. When a person dies, their executor (usually a family member) has to apply for, and receive, a grant of probate before they can execute the will. Even if they apply immediately, this process can take some time.
If you’ve been left assets, such as shares in a public company, cash at a bank or a return of an accommodation bond, you may want to gain control of the assets quickly instead of waiting for probate to be granted. Transfer Indemnity Bonds provide a solution by acting as a guarantee the will is valid. With this guarantee in place, the company can release your assets knowing they won’t be held accountable if the will is contested at a later date.
Our Transfer Indemnity Bonds are quick and easy to arrange and are accepted by the majority of public companies in Australia. They’re also endorsed by the securities industry's peak body, the Securities Registrars Association of Australia Inc.
