Value of property determined by approving authority.
Any person having the authority to approve and accept property bail shall determine the sufficiency of the bail. As to the value of the property being pledged, the person may take into consideration any property appraisals, including the appraised value by the tax assessor office of the county, or any other documents presented by the owner of the property reflecting a value. The person may request the property owner to produce any documents or other forms which in his or her opinion may aid in the determination of sufficiency. The person may rely solely on the information provided in the affidavit provided by the owner without any verification.
