Most people are unfamiliar with how Ventura bail bonds business operate. If you have been notified someone you care for has been arrested and taken to jail you may be wondering what to do and where to turn. You know you want to get them out of jail as fast as possible but at the same time, you want to be sure to get the best deal possible on a bond. You may even pull out a phone book and spend a good deal of time calling from company to company, hoping someone will give you a deep discount if you can pay up front, in full.
What you may not realize is bail is a regulated industry. The California State Department of Insurance, not individual Ventura bail bonds agents, set the rate at which we’re to charge our clients. That rate is 10%. If someone’s bail has been set at $15,000 this means you can expect to pay a $1,500 to purchase Ventura bail bonds. Selling bonds for more or less than the legal rate is prohibited by law.
Sometimes companies might advertise 5% bail bonds or claim to offer the cheapest bail in town. This is merely a deceptive marketing tactic used to get clients through the door. Once they sit down and are ready to begin the paperwork, they find out the 5% often refers to the amount needed to put down on the front end if they want a payment plan. 10% will still be the final rate.
