Some quick facts about bail bonds Los Angeles

  • Contact a few bail bondsmen to get information about the bail amount, how much it will cost you, and how to decide which bondsman is right for your situation. For detailed steps on this, click here.
  • When you decide on which Los Angeles bondsman to use, they will ask a variety of questions about you, your relationship to the defendant, and about the defendant.
  • For bail in the City of Los Angeles, you will need to fill out paperwork including a bail bond application, and an indemnity agreement.
  • Fortunately, Los Angeles is one of the more flexible places for dealing with the cost of bonding (Los Angeles bail bondsmen refer to this as their premium). Typically the cost is about 10% of the bond amount without collateral. So if the court sets the bond amount at $10,000, the bail bondsman would charge you 10% of that, or $1,000. However, we have found some agents charge less such as 8% if you have collateral. We have even seen 5% but after investigating these firms we have found that they either charge a number of hidden fees, or deceptively charge 5% up front and then add an additional 5% or more later. Some bail bonds agents may be willing to bargain. If you decide you want to try that, we recommend you follow our step-by-step instructions here. Federal bonds and immigration bonds are almost always higher.
  • The premium usually requires to be paid in cash, check or credit card. However, if you don’t have the money up front, you should ask about financing, payment plans and no collateral bail bonds, and financing. Make sure you ask if zero percent financing is available.
  • Some Los Angeles bondsmen will require collateral, typically for bail set at more than $100,000. Generally they will agree to using your home or other property, your car, jewelry and other valuables.
  • We recommend that you get an email from the bail bonds firms with all terms such as the premium charge amount, the upfront TOTAL amount of money you need and ALL potential charges. By getting it in an email, you have a written record of your costs, and don’t have to worry about hidden charges surprising you when you go to sign the contract. It will also allow you to compare fees with different companies. It would not hurt to ask for their California Dept of Insurance Bail Bond License number as well, especially if they are offering a deal too good to be true. You can get their email off websites.
  • Bail agents in the city of Los Angeles typically offer services such as Hablamos Español and 24 hour notary public services.

As you can see Los Angeles bail bond agents offer a lot of different options for bail bonds, and some are confusing. For instance, do they offer financing? And if so is it zero percent? What are the total costs – 8%? 10%? 5%? What about the hidden fees? What are their policies that affect YOU if the defendant doesn’t make a court appearance? In order to compare agents for the best prices, and to keep from getting taken advantage of, we recommend you follow our simple 5 step process found here.
