Why do I need this bond?
The Notary Division of the New Mexico Secretary of State’s office requires that all notaries must submit a $10,000 bond prior to be commissioned. By posting a New Mexico notary surety bond, notaries public pledge to faithfully discharge the duties entrusted to them from the date of appointment until the expiration of their commission.
What’s the fine print?
New Mexico notary bonds remain effective for a four-year term, and applicants cannot perform notarial acts until they have received a certificate of appointment. The official commission expiration date is issued by the state, at which point the notary will need to renew their bond.
