Notary Bond

What is the difference between a notary bond with and without errors and omissions?

Hi Shannon,

If you purchase a notary bond with errors and omissions insurance, you're protected in case you make a mistake that costs your client money. For example, if you notarize a document with a forged signature, the person whose signature was forged can bring a lawsuit against you. Errors and omissions insurance would protect you in that case. Lawsuits can be brought against you by clients for many reasons, and E&O insurance protects you like the surety bond protects your clients.
