What is a Cemetery Bond?
In order to operate a cemetery, the state, county, and city in which the property is located will require cemetery permits and cemetery bonds. This is for very good reason. When a person is responsible for this type of property, they will also be responsible to anyone who owns a plot in the cemetery and to the family of anyone who is interned there. Cemetery bonds are designed as a method of protection and are required by law.
Cemetery bonds serve more than one purpose. They are a type of surety bond that guarantees the company or individual who owns the property will keep it well maintained and will ensure that nothing happens to any graves. Additionally, the bonds are a method of indicating that the person is permitted to create a cemetery on the property location. Obtaining a cemetery bond indicates that the person or company is upstanding and honest as well as trustworthy.
