Information for Bail Bond Agents
The City Bail Law (Local Laws 142 and 143 of 2018) and the related rules require bail bond agents to:
- Post a Bail Bond Fees Sign that DCA created, which discloses the maximum fees and the formula for calculating the fees that can be charged. The sign must be printed on paper sized at least 17" x 28". Download the Bail Bond Fees Sign.
- Post an informational sign where all customers can easily see it and provide every consumer with an informational flier before they enter into a contract. The informational sign and flier must list the bail bond agent’s name as it is registered with the New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS), the agent’s license number, the addresses and phone numbers on the license, and the names of any sublicensees. Both the sign and the flier must be at least 8.5” x 11”. Download the template for the informational sign and flier.
