What Do Bondsmen Accept as Collateral?

Picture of a small house with a car parked in front of it.

If a person ends up in jail and they qualify for bail, the judge will determine the amount at their court hearing. Instead of paying the full bail amount out-of-pocket (which can be quite expensive), people will generally hire a bail agent who will post their bond in exchange for a 10% commission. However, as a way of ensuring their promise to appear in court, the bail agent will also ask them to sign over collateral.

History of Bail Bonds

Bail Bonds in the 13th Century

Old books stacked on top of one another on a wooden table.

The idea of using money and other collateral assets in order to release someone booked in jail before their trial dates back to England in the 13th Century.

Using a system of bail bonds enabled people of all classes in society, the rich, middle, and poor, to have better chances of receiving bail when accused of a crime.

Previously, the ones who had enough money and property value were able to secure a temporary release before their trial. Individuals began to commercialize the system when they realized they could offer the security amount to the court with extra fees attached to the defendant and therefore make a profit.

What Is A Cash Only Bail?

A cash only “bail” means it can’t be bonded. In other words, the Judge has required you to pay the full amount of the bail directly to the court rather than paying only a fraction of that to a bondsman.

Let’s say the judge sets your bail at $1,000 bond-able. In theory, you can run to a bail bondsman and only pay around 10% of that (which is $100) and the bondsman will sign a contract with the jail saying they will make sure the defendant appears or they will pay the remaining balance. This works most of the time.
