Why do I need this bond?
By posting a notary surety bond in Hawaii, principals (notaries) pledge to perform the duties of his or her office in compliance with all laws and rules and regulations of the state. If the principal violates the law and, therefore, the terms of the surety bond agreement, the bond protects any and all persons injured by the principals’ misconduct, neglect or violations from financial loss up to the full bond amount of $1,000.
The principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out in a timely manner.
What’s the fine print?
Hawaii notary bonds remain valid for 4 years and must match the date of the notary public’s commission.
