(205 ILCS 510/10)
(from Ch. 17, par. 4660)
Sale of property.
No personal property pledged or received on deposit
by any pawnbroker shall be permitted to be redeemed from such pawnbroker for a period of
48 hours after the delivery of the copy and statement
Section 7 of this Act required to be delivered to the officer or officers
named therein. No personal property purchased by any pawnbroker shall be sold or removed from the place of business or transferred to another pawnshop location of such pawnbroker for a period of 10 days after the delivery of the copy and statement required by Section 7 of this Act required to be delivered to the officer or officers named therein. If the pawner or pledger fails to repay the loan during the
period specified on the pawn ticket, the pawnbroker shall automatically extend
a grace period of 30 days from the default date on the loan during which
the pawnbroker shall not dispose of or sell the personal property pledged. The
parties may agree to extend or renew a loan upon terms agreed upon by the
parties, provided the terms comply with the requirements of this Act. A county or municipality, including a home rule unit, may regulate these holding periods in a manner that is more restrictive than the regulation provided in this Section 10. A home rule unit may not regulate these holding periods in a manner less restrictive than the regulation by the State. This Section is a limitation under subsection (i) of Section 6 of Article VII of the Illinois Constitution on the concurrent exercise by home rule units of the powers and functions exercised by the State.
