Inmate Bonding Procedures

The following procedures may be used to bond an arrested person out of the Rockdale County Jail

 

Property Bond:

For a property bond, the property must be improved real estate, (mobile homes are not considered improved real estate) located in Rockdale County. To post a property bond on a property located in another county, the property owner must go to the Sheriff’s Office in the county where the property is located and request an out-of-county bond

  1. If the property is in Rockdale County, every person listed on the deed must come to the Rockdale County Jail to sign the bonding paperwork.
  2. The security provides a warranty deed and current real estate tax receipt. In addition, a mortgage statement must be provided for the purpose of calculating equity.
  3. The equity in the real estate must be at least equal to the amount of the bond, and all owners of record (those shown on the deed) must sign the affidavit on the bond in the presence of the deputy writing the bond. If one of the securities is deceased, a death certificate for the deceased is required.
  4. If the security states that the property has been paid for then documentation must be provided.
  5. There is a $20 cash bond fee, exact change, upon submission of bond.
  6. Other agencies may require certain administrative fees or other requirements before a property bond will be issued.

Cash Bond:

To post a cash bond, payment may be made by cash, or a cashier’s check equal to the total amount of the bond.

Cash Bonds for the City of Conyers must be paid directly to Municipal Court at 1194 Scott Street, Street Conyers GA 30012
