What is a Pawnbroking Loan?

A Pawnbroking Loan is a short-term loan secured against items of gold, silver, diamond jewellery, quality watches or selected electronic items. The amount of the loan is dependant on the item(s) provided as security.

There are no credit checks and anybody over the age of 18 can be approved for a Pawnbroking Loan. Items are held on our secure premises until the loan is repaid.

What identification will I need?

You will need something with your name and address on such as your driving licence or a utility bill.  The list of acceptable identification is quite long so please contact your local Ramsdens branch if you have any questions.

How long can I borrow for?

Your loan will initially be for a five month period.  You can repay the loan at any time you wish within the five months.

Can I renew my loan?

Yes, this can be done by paying a minimum of the interest due at any point in time. By paying the outstanding interest you can renew your loan for a further five months. This can be done as many times as you wish.

What should I do if the value of my items exceeds £2500?
