California Pawnbroker Bonds
What is a California Pawnbroker Bond?
Licensed pawnbrokers in the State of California must furnish a surety bond as required by California Financial Code § 21303. The surety bond provides a limited guarantee that the bonded pawnbroker makes pledged property available for redemption, refrains from criminal negligence, criminal malfeasance or other acts of criminal conduct when the pledgor has complied with the conditions precedent to redeem property pursuant to the terms of the loan contract. The aggregate liability all persons will not exceed the bond amount, regardless of the number of actions made against this surety bond or the number of years this bond remains in force.
