Who needs a pawnbroker bond?
In the State of California, Pawnbrokers are required to obtain a $20,000 Pawnbroker Bond (or a $100,000 Pawnbroker Bond is applicable) to be in compliance with the California Business and Professions Code Section 21303.
What is the pawnbroker bond?
Pawnbroker bond guarantees compliance with law and regulations governing the operation of pawnbrokers business in the state in which the pawnbroker operates. A pawn broker essentially offers their customers high interest, short-term loans with items of personal property used a collateral. The surety bond guarantees that the pawn broker will not sell the personal item before the end of the contractual period, that they will honor the sell back price and interest cost agreed upon, and that they will not charge more interest than statutorily allowed.
The California pawnbroker bond is also known as: California pawn bond, secondhand dealer bond, pawn dealer bond, pawnshop dealer bond, and pawnshop bond.
What else do I need besides the pawnbroker bond?
Requirements are always subject to change, so it's best to consult the California Department of Justice for the most up-to-date information. You can also visit the California Pawnbrokers Association website for additional info regarding the California secondhand dealer bond.
