              WHAT ARE MY RIGHTS WHEN I PAWN GOODS?

                      Second-Hand Dealers and Pawnbrokers Act 1989

         In brief
           The pawnbroker must give you a pawn ticket and
            written notice of the charge you will have to pay in
            addition to the loan.
           If you do not repay your loan in time, the pawnbroker
            can sell your goods without telling you.
           If the pawnbroker sells your goods, you are entitled to
            claim the money left from the proceeds of sale after the
            money you owe under the loan, any unpaid
            pawnbroker's charge and the reasonable costs of sale of
            the goods have been deducted.

         For further information
           If you have any questions about your rights when you pawn
            goods or if you have a complaint about a pawnbroker,
            please contact Consumer Affairs Victoria.

         In more detail
         Pawnbroker's charge
         The pawnbroker will charge you a weekly or monthly amount
         (sometimes called interest) and must give you written notice of
         the amount of the charge.
         The pawnbroker's premises must have a sign that shows the
         maximum amount charged by the pawnbroker on pawn
         transactions.




                                            16
        Second-Hand Dealers and Pawnbrokers Regulations 2008
                         S.R. No. 140/2008

                                                                    Sch. 3


The pawnbroker must not charge you more than the maximum
amount shown on the sign, unless the notice given to you states
the reason for the higher amount and you agree in writing to pay
the higher amount. You must also be given a copy of this
agreement.

Repaying the loan
You may repay your loan at any time before the pawnbroker
sells your goods, even if the period of your loan has ended.
The pawnbroker must record on your pawn ticket all payments
you make on your loan.

Claiming your pawned goods
You may claim your goods back by paying what you owe under
the loan, and the amount of unpaid pawnbroker's charge.
You may claim your goods back at any time before the
pawnbroker sells them, even if the period of your loan has
ended. When you claim your goods back you must show the
pawnbroker—
  your pawn ticket; and
  one piece of identification with a photograph of yourself
   (such as a passport or a driver licence) or two pieces of
   identification without a photograph (such as a birth
   certificate, health care card or a marriage certificate).
   If you do not have these, either the pawnbroker or
   Consumer Affairs Victoria can advise you what other
   identification can be used.

Lost or stolen tickets
If your pawn ticket is lost or stolen, the pawnbroker must give
you a replacement pawn ticket if you provide—
  a statutory declaration stating that your ticket has been lost
   or stolen; and
  proof of identity as set out above.

Sch. 3


         Selling unclaimed pawned goods
           If you do not claim back your goods by the end of the loan
            period the pawnbroker can sell them without telling you.
           The pawnbroker must sell your goods as soon as practicable
            after the end of the loan period and must obtain the best
            price reasonably obtainable for the goods.
           It is illegal for the pawnbroker to buy your goods.

         Money left over from the sale of unclaimed pawned goods
           If your goods are sold, the pawnbroker is entitled to deduct
            from the proceeds of sale any money you owe (under the
            loan and the pawnbroker's charge) and the reasonable costs
            of selling the goods.
           You are entitled to any money left over from the proceeds
            of sale after these amounts have been deducted, if you
            claim it within 12 months after the sale of the goods.
           If the amount of money left over is $10 or more, the
            pawnbroker must send you a notice advising you that you
            can claim the money.
           The notice must be sent within 14 days after the sale to the
            last address you gave the pawnbroker unless you gave an
            alternative address for sending notices. It is important that
            you tell the pawnbroker if you change your address.
           If you do not claim the money left over within 12 months
            after the sale of the goods you are no longer entitled to it
            and the pawnbroker can keep it.
           It is illegal for the pawnbroker to refuse to pay you the
            money left over if you request payment within the
            12-month period. If the pawnbroker refuses to pay you,
            you may apply to the Magistrates' Court for an order that
            the pawnbroker pay you the money.
