If you are inquiring to see if you have a warrant, please have the following information ready. What charge you think the warrant might be for, when do you estimate the warrant was issued, and what county the warrant is in. Most times, warrant information can be found either online or by calling the sheriffs office in that county where you think you may have a warrant. Some counties do not give out this information and would require a bail bondsman to call to get this type of information.
Once we find what out what the warrant is for, we will also know if there has been a bond placed on it. If bond has been placed, you will want to handle all of the bail bond paperwork first before turning yourself in. Most counties allow bondsman to post bond as soon as the defendant surrenders themselves to the jail. This is the most efficient way to take care of the warrant.
Bail Bond Rates
The bail bond rate, or premium, in Florida is 10%. Unlike some other states, this rate is a flat rate and cannot be negotiated. You may come across other bondsmen who claim they will “discount” the rate; however, dealing with unscrupulous bonds like this may put you and the defendant in a worse situation. It is always safer to deal with a bondsman who charges the full 10% premium. Payment plans are sometimes offered on larger bonds.
Bail Bond Collateral
Collateral is something of value used to secure a bail bond. This can be in the form of cash, credit card, signatures, real property, automobiles, stocks, and other things of value. If cash collateral is given, it is held in a separate trust account either managed by the bonding agency or the surety company the agent writes for. If you used a credit card, a percentage fee may be charge on any collateral returned.
The most common form of collateral is the use of an indemnity agreement and promissory note. These two contacts hold the signers financially responsible for the full amount of the bond on the event of forfeiture. This is the simplest and lowest from of collateral and is used mainly on smaller bonds.
If property is used for a bail bond, it is in the form of a mortgage. Most agencies will cover the cost of recording. When requesting using a home for collateral, we will need to ask you all of the names that are on the deed and the address. A title search will be performed and if there is sufficient equity in the property, we will prepare the mortgage. Once the court case is over, a satisfaction will be recorded.
