2.00 Bail Bonds


In General

Any bail bond, the payment of which is secured by the land in question as a security therefor, notice of which is imparted through the land records, must be shown as a title exception in both the commitment and the policy, unless a proper cancellation is filed for record. Although many district attorneys use a deed of trust form, the law says that the property is held in trust. So, a deed with the Grantee being shown as Trustee is the most appropriate method.

Due to factors such as fraudulent transfers, sketchy legal descriptions, duress, and forgery, do not issue a policy involving land securing the payment of a bail bond without consulting with Texas Underwriting Counsel.
