Section 7-304. [Duty to Provide Bond.]
In the case of a testamentary trust, a trustee shall furnish a bond for the performance of the trustee’s fiduciary duties and a surety shall be required unless waived by the terms of the trust, or found by the court to be not necessary to protect the interests of the beneficiaries. On petition of the trustee or other interested person the court may excuse a requirement of bond, reduce the amount of the bond, release the surety, or permit the substitution of another bond with the same or different sureties. When the instrument creating the trust exempts the trustee from furnishing a bond or limits the amount thereof, or the court determines that the bond is insufficient, the court may if it concludes that a bond be necessary or that a bond of a larger amount is necessary, require the furnishing of such bond.
