2129.26 Bond.

If it appears to the probate court granting the order of sale set forth in section 2129.25 of the Revised Code that the foreign executor or administrator is bound with sufficient surety in the state or country in which the foreign executor or administrator was appointed to account for the proceeds of the sale, for the payment of debts or legacies, and for charges of administration, and an authenticated copy of the bond is filed in court, no further bond for that purpose shall be required of the foreign executor or administrator. If the court finds that the bond is insufficient, before making the sale, the foreign executor or administrator shall give bond to this state with two or more sufficient sureties, conditioned to account for and dispose of the proceeds of the sale for the payment of the debts or legacies of the deceased and the charges of administration according to the laws of the state or country in which the foreign executor or administrator was appointed.

If the foreign executor or administrator is authorized by order of the court to sell more than is necessary for the payment of debts, legacies, and charges of administration, before making the sale, the foreign executor or administrator shall give bond with two or more sufficient sureties to this state, conditioned to account before the court for all the proceeds of the sale that remain and to dispose of the proceeds after payment of the debts, legacies, and charges.
