Why do I need this bond?
Montana notary bonds protect against fraudulent acts on behalf of a notary public. By posting this bond, principals (notaries public) 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.
