TYPES OF BAIL IN VEGAS

 

A property bond is where a defendant puts up collateral for the bail amount.

In the event that the defendant disappears from court, the state can sell off the property to cover the amount of bail.

Cash only bail or a cash bond is when you pay for the bail amount with cash.

The court will hold the money until the defendant appears for his or her hearings.

If a person can not afford bail, they get a surety bond where they will need a bail bond agency to help secure bail.
