A common concern when it comes to Alameda bail bonds is that collateral will need to be posted in order to get the defendant out of jail. This requirement varies company by company and not every bail bondsman will require it. In some cases, collateral will only need to be posted if the defendant’s bail has been set at a very high amount or if the bond is considered to be very risky.
If you are asked to post collateral 150% is the most common industry standard. This means if someone’s bail has been set at $10,000 you may be asked to post an item valued at $15,000. As long as the defendant makes all of their necessary court appearances that item will be returned to the person who posted it at the end of their case.
Some Alameda bail bonds companies, however, work mostly with signature bonds. In cases like these the signature of the person who signs the contract is assurance enough the defendant will go to court.
