A common concern when it comes to San Mateo bail bonds is that collateral will need to be posted in order to get someone out of jail. This requirement often varies from company to company. Some always require it whereas others may only ask for collateral under certain circumstances.
If the San Mateo bail bondsman you’re working with does ask you post collateral you should know the general industry standard is 150%. If the defendant’s bail has been set at $10,000 you may be asked to secure the bond with an item that has $15,000 in value. As long as the defendant goes to court when they’re supposed to that item will be returned to the person who posted it once the case is over.
Some bondsmen, though, only ask for collateral if a bond is considered to be risky or if bail has been set very high. In other cases they may work mostly with signature bonds. In this case the signature of the person (also known as the indemnitor) who signed the bail bonds contract serves as promise enough the defendant will go to court.
