Notary Surety Bonds
Most states require that a notary, or an individual who has applied for appointment as a notary, purchase a surety bond to protect the public from negligent mistakes or dishonest acts by the notary. Typically, the bond guarantees the notary will truly and faithfully perform and discharge all the duties of the office of notary public according to the law. The bond form also guarantees payment to all parties for monetary damages suffered as a result of any failure by the notary to discharge their duties.
