No contract has a minimum term period and each item pawned (used to raise finance) can be redeemed (loan repaid) at any point within the seven-month contract.

Interest is charged from the date of the loan and then occurs the same date the following month throughout the period of the contract.

Items pledged (used to raise a loan) remain with New Bond Street Pawnbrokers throughout the time of the contract but remain the property of our client pledging the item until the contract expires.

New Bond Street Pawnbrokers consider any item of value. Clients must have full marketable title (free of encumbrances of any kind) to each item they wish to loan against.

Items pawned remain with us throughout the time of the contract, but remain your property until the contract expires. After seven months, you can extend the loan contract.
