Notary Bonds in Texas

Texas requires all individuals seeking licensure to become a notary to obtain a $10,000 notary bond.

Our team comprises surety bond experts with over 15 years of experience providing all types of surety bonds to our clients in Texas.

How Do Notary Bonds In Texas Work?

Like all types of surety bonds, a notary surety bond in Texas acts as a risk management tool. It provides a financial incentive for the notary to abide by all applicable Texas laws and regulations in the conduct of their business. It also creates a mechanism that enables anyone harmed by the fraudulent actions of the notary to receive compensation for their damages.

A notary surety bond in Texas is a legal contract between three essential parties:

  • The Principal is the bonded notary.
  • The Obligee is the government agency that requires the bond.
  • The Surety is the insurance company that underwrites the bond.

If a notary's client believes fraudulent actions of a notary have damaged them, they can file a claim against the Texas notary surety bond. The surety is obligated to investigate all claims fully. If the claim has merit, the surety will pay the damages up to the total bond value. However, if the surety finds in favor of the notary, they will dismiss the claim.

The principal is financially responsible for all claims and must repay the surety for any settled claims.

Who Needs a Texas Notary Bond?

Any notary who wishes to be licensed to work in Texas must obtain a Texas surety notary bond. The notary bond must remain active throughout the notary's 4-year commission term.
