Some people will call our office and cut right to the chase. They have found out that someone they know has been arrested and taken to jail and they are interested in learning more about whether they are eligible for discount bail bonds in Hillcrest. On one hand, they want to get the person they care for out of jail fast. On the other, they want to be sure to get the cheapest deal possible on a bond.
Many people don’t realize that the California bail industry is regulated by the State Department of Insurance (DOI). The DOI, not individual bail agents, sets the rate at which we are to charge out clients. That rate is 10%. If someone has had their bail set at $10,000 you should expect to pay $1,000 to purchase a bond. You will also want to keep in mind the fee you pay to a bail bondsman in Hillcrest is just that, a fee. It is not something you will get back.
There are unscrupulous bail agents who use misleading advertising to get people through the door. They may even post ads and signage that will advertise 2% discount bail bonds. That percentage typically refers to the amount of money the cosigner would need to put down if they want to move forward with a payment plan. The full cost will still be 10%.
At Adelante Bail Bonds we may not be able to offer you the “cheapest bail in town” but we can offer you honest, trustworthy, reliable service.
