Why do I need this bond?

Washington notary surety bonds protect the public from any wrongdoings committed by the principal (notary public) while on the job. Specifically, these bonds prohibit notaries from certain acts, including knowingly signing or evidencing information he or she knows to be inaccurate or fraudulent or authorizing documents that benefit the notary in some way.

If the notary breaches the terms of the surety contract or the applicable legislation, a claim can be filed against the bond. If the claim is found valid, the surety will compensate harmed parties for any financial losses up to the full bond amount. The notary must reimburse the surety for any damages paid out.
