What are the most common forms of collateral?
Depending on the charge and the bail set, many people will not have the ability to pay the entire bail up front. In these instances, a bail bondsman can act as a bond cosigner. The bondsman will require collateral. Here are the most common things used for bail collateral. If the person needing bonding attends all court dates, and once the bondsman has received back their bail fee, you can have your items returned. Depending on each case this can be a matter of weeks, months, or even a year or more.
This is a broad term but refers to any property, building, or assets associated with property such as crops, livestock, etc. Even a property that holds a mortgage with equity can be used as collateral.
This could be valuable watches, diamonds or other precious stones, pearls, gold, and silver that an assessed value can be applied to.
Vehicles of Any Type
Cars, trucks, SUVs, campers, motorcycles, boats, ATV’s, etc. can all be assessed a value and used as collateral
This would include stocks, bonds, CD’s, or savings accounts of any kind.
All Pawnable Items
This is a broad category. Whatever can be pawned applies. Items like firearms, laptops, televisions, stereos, paintings, etc.
What Are the Most Common Types of Bonds?
When it comes to bail bonds, there may be several options available for friends and family members, and the type of bond you may need will depend on a few factors. Things such as the offense for which the defendant is being charged, what the total amount for bail is and your current financial situation can all have an affect on the kind of bond you may need. The following types of bail bonds are the most common forms of posting bail.
By far the most common State bond, a surety bond, is governed by Florida regulations and stipulates that the bondsman will be paid 10%. The bondsman then provides the remainder of the bond to the court. This is the law. There is NEVER an instance where a bondsman can offer you a deal or charge more than the stipulated 10%. The only exception to this 10% rule is when bail is set under $1,000. Regardless of the amount below $1,000 the cost is $100 and not 10%. Since the law is specific the only difference that separates the multitude of bail bonds companies is the service you will be provided.
Federal Bail Bonds
A Federal bail bond comes in to play when the alleged crime is of a federal nature or involves interstate criminal activity. Examples of this would be crimes that cross state lines, or any crime investigated by a federal agency like the FBI, or involves the Post Office, IRS or Immigration Services. Examples of this would be tax evasion, drug trafficking, fraud, and kidnapping as well as any crime that takes place on federal property. Federal bonds are most often many times higher than a state bond. The premium rate in Florida for a Federal Bail Bond is 15%. Often, a judge will add a “Nebbia” requirement. This means that whomever is paying the bond provides proof that any collateral or money used is from a legitimate source. The professionals at Bazarte Bail Bonds are experienced in dealing with Federal Bail Bonds and can be instrumental in helping the arrestee deal with these intricacies. We can also provide assistance for Signature and Immigration bonds.
When a person believes there may be an outstanding warrant for their arrest, it is possible for the offender’s bail be paid without going through the process of being detained in jail. The reason for this is simple. Jails are overcrowded. If someone believes a warrant exists against them, the best course of action is to contact Bazarte Bail Bonds. We can verify the record, and explain the process, and accompany you to a facility that accepts self-arrests. We will explain what identification is required, and the proper dress code.
They were very quick and efficient in bailing out nephew.
