Why do I need this bond?
Arizona notary surety bonds ensure that the principal (notary) will adhere to all laws, rules and regulations stated in the Arizona Revised Statutes—specifically Title 41—which include, but are not limited to:
- Verifying identity of clients
- Maintaining accurate records of documents they have notarized and for whom
- Ensuring document is signed when oath is given
- Not using false or misleading advertising
- Not charging higher fees than stated in statutes or laws
Arizona notary 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 out.
What’s the fine print?
Arizona notary bonds are issued for four year terms and must be renewed at the end of each term for as long as the notary wishes to keep their commission active. The surety may cancel the bond at any time as long as 30 days’ notice is given to the Secretary of State.
