Why do I need this bond?

Montana notary bonds protect against fraudulent acts on behalf of a notary. By posting this bond, principals (notaries) agree to abide by all rules and regulations stated in the Montana Code Annotated. Prohibited acts include, but are not limited to:

  • notarizing a document where he or she is a named party
  • notarizing any document where the notary is the sole interest or may directly benefit
  • certifying any document issued by a public entity if not employed by that entity

If a notary public fails to perform his or her duties as required by state regulations, a claim can be made against the bond to provide reparation for damages committed.

What’s the fine print?

The state does not have a specific form available for this bond requirement, which means the surety company will issue this bond on a generic form. Montana notary bonds are issued for a 4-year term.
