A Utah notary public has the responsibility of doing one principal thing: Personally witness signatures in an attempt to prevent fraud.
The following are the prerequisites to become a Utah notary public:.
Utah Notary Bond: The Purpose
The purpose of the Utah notary bond is to protect the public from any potential acts of fraud or criminal malfeasance committed while performing duties as a notary.
The Utah notary bond does not, therefore, protect the notary in the least.
The bond, again, is issued to protect the public.
Because this is so, Utah notary publics should seriously consider an Errors and Omissions (E&O) policy offered by AmeriPro Surety Bonds.
An E&O policy is insurance which, in fact, protects the notary; however, E&O insurance is not required to be licensed.
We offer E&O insurance in different amounts.
The cost is quite minimal when you consider the amount of protection offered to the notary.
It’s something to consider.
The Utah notary bond is issued for a period of 4 years to run concurrent with the notary license.
The bond will need to be renewed when the Utah notary public license is renewed.
The Utah notary bond is an “instant issue” bond.
You merely fill out our application, pay the premium, and the bond is issued to you immediately.
There is no credit check for this bond.
AmeriPro Surety Bonds provides notary bonds, E&O insurance for notary publics, license and permit bonds, and bonds of all types throughout Utah.
We also provide surety bonds in all 50 states.
