Discounted San Mateo Bail?
When looking for a bail bondsman in San Mateo County, you will probably come across a few who promise “cheap bail” or even “5% bail bonds.” Buyer beware!
It may be tempting to work with one of them because no one wants to have to spend too much money for such an unpleasant expense. You need to know, though, that what these bondsmen are doing is illegal.
The amount of the bail bond premium is set by the California Department of Insurance. Legally, the San Mateo bail bond fee is 10% of the defendant’s total bail. So, if the bail is $25,000 then the fee for a bail bond would be $2,500.
If you are considering choosing a bondsman who promises you a discount bail bond, you need to reconsider. Think of it this way: if that bondsman is willing to do something illegal to get your business, what can you expect in the long run? Will he return your collateral to you after the case is over? Will he sneak in extra hidden fees? Will he turn your friend or family member back over to the jail without cause? These are all things you need to keep in mind when a bondsman offers you a price that is too good to be true.
