Nevada Notary Bond

Nevada Notary Bond

Notaries appointed in Nevada must hold a $10,000 Notary Bond as a financial guarantee that their actions will not cause monetary loss to the public.  

SECURE YOUR BOND

With Jet, you can buy your Notary Bond for just $50, guaranteed. Click the button above to input the needed information and complete your purchase.

After your purchase is processed, Jet will fill out the bond form and mail it over to you to sign. Once signed, you must submit your oath application with the bond to the county clerk where you will be operating. See the chart at the bottom of the page for addresses for your local county clerk court.

The Notary Bond Process With Jet

If you need to cancel your bond with Jet, send our team an email at bonddept@jetsurety.com. We will notify the Secretary of State to begin the 30-day cancellation period. 

Under the Nevada Revised Statutes, Section 240.033, a notary who does not hold an active bond will have their appointment as notary suspended. If you plan to continue operating, a replacement bond must be filed within the 30-day period to avoid complications with the notary appointment.

How Does a Nevada Notary Public Avoid Bond Claims?

As a notary public, you are obligated to fulfill the applicable regulations in the Nevada Revised Statutes, Sections 240.001 to 240.169. Notaries who provide services electronically must follow those regulations in addition to those in Section 240.206. These statutes, when followed, prevent a notary from engaging in fraudulent or reckless activity that will cause financial damage to their clients. In addition to bond claims, failing to comply with these regulations can result in penalties up to $2,000 for each violation and the suspension/revocation of your notary appointment. It is in your best interest to comply with these regulations to maintain business proceedings and avoid complications. 

However, if you do receive a claim against your bond, contact Jet right away. Our team will investigate to check the validity of the claim and see if there is a way to resolve it before a payout is made. If the claim is found to be legitimate, Jet must pay the injured person(s) in the full claim amount, not to exceed the $10,000 bond limit. Since the payout was a result of your illegitimate business dealings, you are responsible for paying Jet back.

Are There Other Coverages That a Nevada Notary Needs?

The Notary Bond is a requirement in order to receive a certificate of appointment and is conditioned to protect others from your actions. Notaries may choose to purchase E&O (Errors and Omissions) Insurance to help protect themselves.
