What is a Notary Bond?
Notaries are entrusted to handle sensitive documents with legal authority. Any mistakes, whether unintentional or purposeful misconduct, can affect the personal rights and property of private citizens. Many states require notaries to obtain a notary surety bond before they can be licensed, which they must maintain for their entire term of office.
The main responsibility of all notary publics is to make sure that the individuals entering into a contract are who they say they are. If the notary fails to do so and if a client can prove harm resulting from a notary’s performance, that person is entitled to file a lawsuit in order to recover losses against the notary’s bond.
The notary bond is a guarantee that the State will be paid for the loss, and that it will cover the proper penalty amount assigned.
