Many people will go their entire lives without being informed that a friend or family member has been arrested and detained by the Morgan Hill Police Department. Those who do receive that call often feel as if their entire world has been turned upside down. The idea of needing to hire a bondsman can be as foreign as it is frightening. On one hand you want to get the person you care for out of jail fast. On the other, you want to make sure you get the best deal possible from the Morgan Hill bondsman.
Sometimes people will start their search by calling every company in the book. Their first and only question is about price. Can you get a better deal if you pay in full? Is it possible to get a deep discount if you show up at their office with a handful of cash? If you can negotiate the cost of a home or a car, can the same be done with bail bonds?
The quick answer to that question is no. The California bail industry is regulated by the Department of Insurance (DOI) and the DOI is the regulatory agency that tells bondsmen what they can and can’t charge their clients. They have set that rate at 10%. You may be shocked to learn that agents who charge more or less than the legal rate can have their bail license revoked. They may also face fines, penalties and criminal prosecution.
