If you own or operate a pawn or jewellery shop and lend money to your customers in exchange for their goods, gold or silver, you enter into a pawn loan agreement (consumer credit agreement) with them. This agreement contains the terms and conditions of the loan, your personal details and those of your customer as well as information on the item secured against the loan (collateral). Terms and conditions are for instance the value of the item, the applicable interest rate and the expiration date of the loan. Your customer has at least 2 months for paying back the loan and retrieving their item.
