The said bond shall be in the form and be conditioned as required of guardians and conservators appointed under the general guardianship laws of this state. The court shall have power from time to time to require the guardian or conservator to file an additional bond. Where a bond is tendered by a guardian or conservator with personal sureties, there shall be at least two (2) such sureties and they shall file with the court a certificate under oath which shall describe the property owned, both real and personal, and shall state that they are each worth the sum named in the bond as the penalty thereof over and above all their debts and liabilities and exclusive of property exempt from execution. Notwithstanding such tender, the court may require additional security or may require a corporate surety bond, the premium thereon to be paid from the ward's estate.
