Delivery Bond Law and Legal Definition

Delivery bond is a bond given by the defendant in an action aided by attachment, in obtaining the release of the attached property from the custody of the officer who seized it under the writ of attachment. The condition of the delivery bond will be that if judgment in the action is rendered against the defendant, the property will be forthcoming to satisfy the execution on such judgment. Otherwise, the sureties will be bound to the extent of the value of the property, in some instances, and to the amount of the indebtedness in other instances.

A delivery bond is otherwise known as a forthcoming bond or a redelivery bond.
