Property is often used to secure a bond when the co-signer can't raise the cash that is needed or if the court requires property be used. Immigration bail bonds are normally secured by property simply because a person is less likely to avoid court if their actual property is used to secure their bond. Various types of property can be used such as vehicles, real estate, businesses, and jewelry. If real property is used to secure a bail bond, it must be valued at one and a half times the total value of the bond. For example, if your bond is $10,000, your property must be worth at least $15,000 to be eligible. It must also be owned with a free title, meaning no liens or judgments against it.
