If you have been asked to help bail a friend or family member out of jail one of the first things you might wonder is whether you will need to post collateral. Some Riverside bail bonds companies will require it, others will not. This may be an important thing to consider before you move forward with signing paperwork.
If you are asked to post collateral the bondsman will likely require you post something with equal or greater value than the defendant’s total bail amount. A common industry standard is 150%. This means if someone’s bail has been set at $10,000 you may be asked to post an item valuing $15,000 as collateral. As long as the defendant makes all of their court appearances that item will be returned to you at the conclusion of their case.
There are, though, other companies that work mostly with signature bonds. In this case the signature of the person who signed the contract is assurance enough the defendant will go to court when needed.
