Borrow Against Gold and Other Precious Metals

Pawnbroking is a time-honoured tradition in London, offering a reliable and straightforward way for people to secure loans against valuable items.

As a trusted pawnbroker in London, J Blundell & Sons Ltd is proud to be part of this tradition, providing gold loans to our customers in the heart of the city and beyond. We offer competitive interest rates, providing you with the financial flexibility you need without the hassle of traditional lenders.

How it Works

Borrowing against your gold and other precious metals couldn’t be easier

1: Valuation In Store

Bring your items to our Hatton garden store. Our trained staff will assess the value of your gold based on its weight, purity, and the current market price of gold. This ensures that you get a fair and transparent loan offer.

2: Loan Offer

Get your loan offer! This offer will detail the amount you can borrow against your gold, interest rate for the loan and repayment terms.

3: Acceptance and Payment

Once the offer is accepted, we’ll hand over the cash straight away or do same day bank transfer. We will pack your valuables and safely store them. Our storage facilities are insured for the value determined in the offer.

4: Repayment

Repayment of your loan is flexible. You can choose to repay your loan in full at any time during the loan term without paying any early repayment fees or at the end of term. Once the loan is repaid, your gold will be returned to you.

Why Pawn With J Blundell?

No admin Fee

Unlike some lenders, we don’t charge any administrative fees. Our focus is on providing you with the instant cash loans you need, without any hidden costs. The only exception is if you loose copy of your contract.

Daily Interest

Interest on our loans is calculated daily. This means that you only pay interest for the exact number of days you borrow the money.

Early repayments

If you’re in a position to repay your loan before the end of the term, you’re free to do so. There are no penalties or extra charges for early repayment. In fact, repaying early can save you money as you’ll pay less interest.

Instant Cash Loans

We offer pawnbroking loans for amounts of £500 and above with same day bank transfer for loans above £1,000. However, if you need to borrow less than £500, we offer a convenient buy back service. Details of this service can be found on our Buy Back Gold London page.

Credit Rating

Since the loan is secured against your gold, your score is not a factor in the loan process, and the loan does not appear on your credit rating.

In essence, our gold loans are designed to be flexible, fair, and customer-friendly. We offer competitive Lona to Value (LTV) ratios, no admin fees, daily interest calculation, and we welcome early repayments. It’s all part of our commitment to offering the best possible service to our customers.

Understanding the Risks and Disadvantages of a Pawnbroking Loan

While pawnbroking loans, or secured loans are a convenient way to access cash, it’s important to understand the potential risks involved. We believe in transparency and ensuring our customers are fully informed before they decide to pawn their gold. You should get independent financial advice and make sure these loans meet your needs and affordability.

Risk of Losing Your Collateral

The most significant risk of a pawnbroking loan is using it as collateral for the loan. If you’re unable to repay the loan and the accrued interest by the end of the loan term, the pawnbroker has the right to sell your silver or gold to recover the debt.

Interest Costs

While pawnbroking loans can be a useful short-term financial solution, they can be expensive if used over a long period. If you’re unable to repay the pawnbroking loan quickly, the interest costs can accumulate, making the loan more expensive.
