California Bail Solicitor Bond
A quick guide to one of the most important requirements for bail solicitors!
What is a California Bail Solicitor Bond?
Every bail solicitor in California – who is appointed by a bail licensee – is required to obtain a license prior to transacting bail on behalf of the bail licensee. One of the requirements for the said license is this bond.
This bond will serve as an assurance to the Insurance Commissioner of the State of California that the bail solicitor will perform his or her duties in accordance with the conditions of the license.
One of the conditions of the said license is to obey the provisions of Chapter 7 of Part 2 of Division 1 of the California Insurance Code, and to the provisions of Chapter 2 of Title 14 of Part 2 of the California Code of Civil Procedure.
This bond shall be submitted along with the appointment of bail solicitor executed by the bail licensee (bail agent licensee or bail permittee licensee). The appointment of bail solicitor must show that the bail licensee has employed the bail solicitor to transact bail.
This requirement is in line with Section 1803 of the California Insurance Code.
How does a California Bail Solicitor Bond work?
A bond is a legal document in which the third party (Surety) assures the second party (Obligee) regarding the fulfillment of the first party’s (Principal) obligations.
The Obligee is the State of California. The Obligee is the party to whom the Surety and the Principal will be indebted to. The Principal is the bail solicitor. If the bail solicitor fails to perform his or her legal duties or has committed a misconduct, the Obligee will be eligible to file a claim.
The claim is for the benefit of any person who has suffered damages because of the Principal’s violations. The Surety will settle it on behalf of the Principal if the latter failed to do so. Under the terms of the indemnity agreement, full reimbursement must be made by the Principal.
