Most people who call our office are quick to ask how much Redwood City bail bonds cost. Many have never needed to hire a bondsman before and although they want to get the person they care for out of jail fast, they want to make sure they can get the best deal on Redwood City bail bonds. What they don’t realize is that purchasing a bond is not the same as purchasing a car or kitchen appliance.
Bail is a regulated industry in the state of California and all bondsmen are required to be licensed by the California Department of Insurance (DOI). The DOI, not individual bail companies, also regulates the cost of bail bonds throughout the state. They have set the rate at 10%. This means if someone’s bail has been set at $25,000 you can expect to pay $2,500 to purchase a bond.
Some companies may advertise having the “cheapest bail in town” or may put up signage regarding 5% bail bonds, but this is little more than bait-and-switch advertising. In most cases “cheap bail” or 5% bail bonds refers to the amount of money you would need to put down in order to move forward with a payment plan. Once you read through the contract you’ll quickly find the total cost of the bond is still 10%. This is because it is against the law to sell Redwood City bail bonds for more or less than the legal rate.
