The idea that a friend or loved one has been arrested can be very unnerving, especially if you’ve been told it will cost thousands of dollars to hire a bondsman.
The cost to purchase bail bonds in Santa Clara County may only be 10% of the defendant’s full bail amount but this can still mean needing to come up with a very large amount of money on very short notice.
This is why many California bail bonds clients that inquire are interested in learning more about how bail bonds payment plans work and if they would be eligible for 0% down bail bonds. For the most part, 0% down bail bonds are only available to people who own real property (like a house or a condo), who have equity in their home, and are willing to let the bondsman place a lien against the property until the bail bonds balance is paid off and the defendant’s case is concluded.
