OTHER PERMISSABLE FEES YOU MAY HAVE TO PAY
Ten Day Notice Fee (per CFC Section 21201.2): If your loan and interest goes unpaid past the contract, you may be charged a $3 fee for the required 10-day notice. Within 30 days of the end of the expiration of your loan, the pawnbroker will issue you this notice. If you do not pay the loan, interest and charges due as shown on the notice within the 10-day period, all rights, interest and title to the collateral that you have pledged will be transferred to the pawnbroker. The pawnbroker will then own the property and may elect to sell or otherwise dispose of the property. You may request the notice of termination of the loan period be sent by mail, electronically if the pawnbroker offers that service, or by registered or certified mail, with return receipt requested, upon prepayment of these mailing costs.
The pawnbroker may charge you up to $10 if you lose your pawn ticket.
You may be charged a $4 fee for any firearm you pawn.
When the loan is paid in full, the pawnbroker shall provide the borrower with a receipt that correctly states all of the fees and charges paid by the borrower to the pawnbroker.
The “Annual Percentage Rate” (interest) includes all of the costs of the loan known to be applicable to the loan at the time the loan
is written. You can use the APR to compare the costs of this loan with other types of loans. The formula for APR is the Interest +
Fees and Charges + Amount Loaned + Number of Months of the Loan x 12 x 100.
