Pawn Loans


The Pawn process is much the same as any other lending institution in El Cerrito and Vallejo, CA , with the primary difference being the use of collateral instead of credit.

Pawn loans are written for four months (120 days). At the end of that period the customer is required to pay the loan in full plus the small amount of interest and charges due and the collateral is returned. If the customer cannot pay the loan in full, at the pawn shop’s discretion, they may offer the option of paying the interest and charges due and rewriting the loan for another four months. If the customer does not repay the loan in full plus the interest and charges due or rewrite the loan by the due date plus a 10 day grace period, the collateral is forfeited to the pawnbroker.

California State Licensed Pawnbrokers

Interest rates and terms of a loan are governed by the State of California and cannot be changed or modified by the pawnbroker. A state licensed pawnbroker is the only entity who can legally write a pawn loan.
