Learn More About How Bonding Works
Just like other surety bond types, notary bonds join three parties together in a legally binding contract.
- The obligee is the government agency that requires the notary bond.
- The principal is the notary that purchases the bond as a guarantee that obligations will be fulfilled dutifully.
- The surety is the underwriter that provides the notary bond.
If a notary fails to perform his or her tasks as required by the bond’s terms, a claim can be made against the bond by the state and/or those harmed as a result of the notary’s actions. If this claim is valid, the bond amount can be used to reimburse the harmed parties, thereby protecting both consumers and the state from financial loss.
