What is the purpose of the $5,000 notary bond?

Utah notaries must post a $5,000 surety bond with the Office of the Lieutenant Governor prior to operating within the state. By posting a Utah notary bond, the 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 law and the terms of the surety bond, the bond protects harmed parties from financial loss up to the full bond amount.

Terms of a notarial bond in Utah

Utah notary bonds run continuously for four years from the effective date and must be renewed at the end of the term. A notary public signature is required on the bond form to acknowledge the agreement between the surety and the principal.
