What is a notary bond?

A notary bond is a three-party obligation. The bonding company guarantees to the Nevada Secretary of State's office that it will pay, on behalf of a commissioned Nevada notary, any losses incurred by the public up to $10,000 during the notary’s commission term. The surety company will then demand reimbursement from the notary in the event of such paid losses.
