BAIL BOND RATE FILING
This premium rate filing is made pursuant to Section 648.35(2), Florida Statutes. The following rates are the rates I intend
to charge. I understand that I may not deviate from these rates without first amending this filing and then obtaining
approval from the Florida Department of Financial Services.
A.
STATE BONDS
Rate…………………………………………………………….
10 %
$100
Minimum Premium……………………………………………
B.
FEDERAL BONDS
Rate……………………………………………………………
15 %
$100
Minimum Premium……………………………………………
I have read and am familiar with the provisions of Chapter 69B-221, Florida Administrative Code and understand that the
following requirements are contained therein:
1.
The premium charge shall be a term charge for the term of the bond and not an annual charge on all bail bonds.
2.
No additional premium shall be charged when the case is bound over from one court to another except that if a
bond is increased, an additional amount may be charged based on the rates I currently use for the amount of
the increase on the face of the bond. An additional charge may be made when the case is involved in the State
Circuit Court and the Federal Court, as two separate bonds will be necessary.
3.
A refund of the premium charge shall be made when the defendant is surrendered prior to the final termination
of the surety’s liability on the bond unless the surrender is based on a violation of the contract between the
defendant and the surety. A refund of the premium shall also be made when it is found that the defendant
does not come under the jurisdiction of the court for which the bond was written.
4.
Rates as filed and approved by the Department of Financial Services are the only rates, which may be used;
the same rate must apply to all similar bonds.
5.
Before a rate can be changed, a new filing must be made and approved. I must be able to prove, by my own
records, that my previous rates were too high or too low, as the case may be.
