Why do I need this bond?
The Kansas Secretary of State requires notaries to be bonded.By purchasing a notary bond, the notary guarantees that he or she will notarize all documents lawfully and ethically. If the notary public fails to do so, the person in need of a notarized document will be protected from errors made by the notary. This bond ensures that the applicant cannot violate the public’s trust through negligence of his or her duties without funds being available to reimburse those who suffer losses. The following acts are prohibited:
- Accepting payments other than authorized fee for notarial act completed such as excess commission, fees, advantages, titles, interest or property
- Knowing that person whose signature on the notarized document is a relative of notary public
- Influencing person in an unlawful transaction
- Allowing others to use his or her notary stamp
- Certifying a document containing information known by notary to be false
What’s the fine print?
