How Does a Pawn Loan Work?

A pawn is the short handed term for what is known as a collateral loan. Pawnbrokers lend the customer money determined by a certain items value. When the customer is able to pay back the loan, their item is returned to them. A customer may surrender their item to the pawnbroker as a way to pay their loan in full. The amount of the loan will vary significantly depending on the appraised value of the item. Roath’s Pawn Shop offers customers a convenient 90-day loan period.

There are many benefits to the process of pawning. Going to a pawn shop offers the customer a fast and convenient way to receive a loan. Pawning allows for a momentary cash need to be met without a credit check, or any legal repercussions if the loan is not repaid. People will not overextend their credit, or go into bankruptcy with a pawn loan. Approximately 80% of the items placed as collateral are redeemed by their owner. If the customer does not want a loan, they can also choose to sell their item to the pawnbroker.

Over the years pawning has received a lot of negative connotations through the media, films, and television. However, pawnbroking in Canada is so well regulated that nearly all risks (both to pawnbrokers and customers) have dissolved. A federal Pawnbrokers’ Act was passed in 1886, and an array of provincial laws concerning pawnbroking have recently come into effect. The areas that most highly regulated include the safekeeping of objects left as collateral, the level of interest rates charged, the length of time an item has to be held before being sold, and requirements for municipal licensing.
