Florida Notary Public Errors & Omissions Insurance
Are You Protected?
Many notaries don't realize it, but they can be held personally liable for the notarial transactions they perform. They mistakenly believe that the required Notary Bond they purchase protects them. It doesn't! The bond protects the public. When sued, a Notary may incur thousands of dollars in legal fees even if no damages were awarded.
Consider these real cases:
- Acting on instructions from her boss, a Notary witnessed signatures on a real estate transaction, which later proved to be forgeries. She was found liable for nearly $2,500 in court costs and $5,000 in damages. Can you afford this?
- Another Notary was sued for allegedly affixing her seal to a certificate of title with a forged signature. Although judgement was in favor of the Notary, she incurred $560 in legal fees. Thankfully, she had an E&O policy - she was fully protected.
For pennies a day, you can be protected from financial loss.
