Tip: Bond

Many states require a newly commissioned notary to get a surety bond before they can act as a notary public. The amount of the bond varies from state to state. The price of the bond is generally anywhere from $30-$70 and the bond is good for the life of the particular commission of the notary. If the notary renews their commission, they need to get a new bond. The notary bond needs to be filed with the notary's local county recorder.
