What Do Bondsmen Accept as Collateral?

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.

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.
