By posting a notary public surety bond in Hawaii, principals (notaries public) 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.
