Why does a notary public in Arizona need to be bonded?
The Arizona Secretary of State requires notaries to post a $5,000 bond to ensure that they adhere to all laws, rules, and regulations stated in the Arizona Revised Statutes, specifically Title 41.
Arizona notary surety bonds ensure that if any of these provisions are violated and a valid claim is made against the bond, the surety will cover any damages up to the full bond amount. The principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid.
