If you have never been asked to help arrange bail bonds in Ojai you likely have very little understanding about how the process works. You will want to keep in mind that purchasing a bail bonds is not like buying a car, a set of golf clubs or a kitchen appliance.
Most people will start off their search based on price alone. They will pick up a copy of the Yellow Pages, or will log onto their computer, and begin calling every company they can find. Their first question is always “how much will it cost to hire a bondsman in Ojai”. In some cases they might even try to play companies against each other, telling person A the person B offered them a better deal. “If you can beat it or match it I will go with your company”, they say.
The commercial bail industry is regulated by the California Department of Insurance (DOI). The DOI, not individual bail bonds professionals, is the regulatory agency that tells us what we’re allowed to charge our clients. The statewide rate is 10%. No matter which town, city, or municipality a person is arrested in, the cost to purchase bail bonds will be the same.
California bail amounts are among the highest in the nation, and even 10% can translate into quite a bit of money. If you don’t have the full sum available all at once, don’t worry. You will simply want to ask the person you are speaking with if they can assist you with an affordable monthly payment plan.
