Cheap 5% Bail Bonds Violate California Law

Slide background


The cost of a bail bond in California is set by the Department of Insurance at 10% of the total bail amount.

We often get the questions from potential clients, “Can you do it for less? Would you take 5% if I pay cash?”

Any agent underwriting bail for 5% in the State of California is simply acting illegally. We understand that you want your bail bond at the lowest cost. If possible, you want cheap bail.

Some people may not care if paying an illegal 5% bail premium is against the law. To those folks, we invite you to break the law elsewhere. However, we ask you to consider carefully the position in which unlawful bail puts you.

Call us for a bondsman who will help you understand your legal options: 888-224-5266.

If a bail agent is breaking the law by price-cutting, will the same agent return your collateral? Will he or she surrender the defendant back to the court without cause? 5% sounds like a great deal, but what will it really cost you? Please be careful and think through your options before accepting a cheap bail bond offer.
