What Is A West Virginia Notary Bond?
A notary bond is a type of surety bonding that is used by notaries as required by the state that they practice in. A notary bond is an agreement between the notary and the state that the notary guarantees full compliance with all state laws. Additionally, the notary guarantees through their use of surety bonds that they will not practice their business in a fraudulent or unethical manner. If it is found that the notary has done so and it results in financial loss for their customer the client can file a claim against them.
The state of West Virginia does not require its notaries to be bonded before the state issues them a notary license. However, since surety bonds also protect the general taxpaying public many WV notaries decide to become bonded as soon as possible through a professional and experienced surety bond company.
