A Kansas Notary Public surety bond is required for anyone applying for or renewing, a Kansas Notary Public commission. This bond protects the public from any damages - up to the bond amount - caused by the misconduct or negligence of a Kansas Notary Public. A surety bond is a three-way agreement between a Principal (the individual applying for a Kansas Notary Public commission), an Obligee (Kansas Secretary of State), and a surety company (the company backing the bond.
A surety bond does not function like an insurance policy for the Principal; instead, it protects the obligee and the general public from financial damages in the event that the Notary Public violates the terms of their commission. The complete handbook for the commission can be found here.
This bond is backed to the amount of $7,500, and runs for 4 years (or a different date, determined by the date the Secretary of State files the application), concurrent to the Notary Public commission. The cost of this 4-year bond is $100 ($50 premium + $50 fee).
In the event that the Principal violates the terms of their commission, and thus the terms of their bond, there will be a claim filed against the bond. The surety company will pay financial damages up to the amount of the bond, at which point the Principal must repay the surety for the full amount. In addition to repayment, the surety company may revoke the bond, at which point the Notary commission is considered invalid.
It is important to understand the importance of avoiding claims against your bond, as they will complicate any future surety bond applications and may limit your ability to file a bond at all. A claim against a bond is a record of non-compliance with the terms of your bond.
I have processed 2 defective title bonds through South Coast Surety and I am the type that gets worried for any little detail and want to make sure everything is done correctly the first time to prevent double work for myself and everybody.

I was shopping for a surety bond for the first time and having trouble communicating with several different companies. When I contacted South Coast Surety they responded quickly and performed the transaction quick and easy. I might have been able to find a lower price, but their professionalism was worth a couple extra dollars.

We are opening up a Mental Health Residential Treatment Center and needed a Surety bond since we will be handling some clients cash resources. I reached out to South Coast Surety, they sent me an application, paid our premium and had our bond sent to us immediately. Everyone I spoke to and emailed was courteous, attentive and responded very quickly. We will most definitely continue to get all of our bond services from South Coast.
