If you or a friend or family member is in jail and needs to post bail, you are probably aware of the high cost of bail. Most people do not have the thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars available to them that may be required to get out of prison on bail while waiting for their trial. There are options, however. Depending on individual circumstances, you may be able to post bail with a property bond.

Property Bonds

A property bond is essentially a loan with collateral in the form of your property. A lien may be placed on your house or some other immovable property that is located within Louisiana. The equity value of your property is determined by subtracting what you owe on the property (such as the mortgage) from the assessed value of the property. The process of using your property for bail usually only costs a few hundred dollars, making it one of the cheaper options in Louisiana.
