Why do I need this bond?
By posting a Utah notary bond, the principal (notary public) pledges to conduct all duties commissioned to him/her ethically and in accordance with the laws of the state. If the principal fails to adhere to the letter of the law and the terms of the surety bond contract, the bond protects harmed parties from financial loss up to the full bond amount. The principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.
What’s the fine print?
Utah notary bonds must be submitted to the Lieutenant Governor’s Office. These bonds run continuously for 4 years from the effective date listed on the bond form. A notary public signature is required on the bond form to acknowledge the agreement between the surety and the principal.
