(a) A conservator, temporary conservator and special conservator shall furnish a bond conditioned upon faithful discharge of all duties of the trust according to law and containing a statement of acceptance of the duties of the office. A surety shall be required on the bond of a conservator, except the court may waive the requirement of sureties for good cause shown by the conservator. A bond with sureties shall be in the amount established by the court.
