Why do I need a notary bond in California?

Notary publics in California must post $15,000 surety bonds before legally conducting acts as a notary surety within the state. By posting a notary bond in California, notaries pledge that they will perform all duties required of him or her by the state ethically and in full compliance with all state laws.

In addition to being legally required, obtaining a notary surety bond assures the client that they are well protected, adding a dependable and reputable component to your name while legitimizing the notary service.

If the principal fails to conduct notarial acts in compliance with the letter of the law and the terms of the surety bond contract, the bond protects harmed parties from financial loss up to the full amount of the bond. The principal must pay the surety for all damages paid out.
