Answers To Your Questions
Logbook loans are generally a very straightforward type of loan, but we’re sure you have a number of questions so have compiled answers to some of the common questions we receive from Carreglefn applicants.
How Logbook Loans work - V5 Loans explained
A logbook loan is a type of secured lending where a borrower transfers ownership of their vehicle, to the lender as the security for the loan. How much Carreglefn residents can borrow depends on just how much their car is worth; some Anglesey lenders can let you borrow up to 80% of what the car will fetch in the current market, however, terms and conditions normally vary from one loan lender to another. While making the repayments, you get to keep possession of your car and continue using it. When the loan is fully repaid, you regain ownership of your car.
What documents do I need to provide?
Enquiring about a loan is easy and only takes a few minutes of your time. You’ll need to provide some personal information along with a copy of your photo ID, your logbook (or V5 documents) most recent MOT, proof of car insurance, proof of Anglesey residency, and proof of income. These things will all help lenders verify your identity and ownership, and it will also help lenders decide what type of loan you can qualify for.
Why are Logbook Loans a good idea?
They are often a good type of loan for Carreglefn borrowers with bad credit scores because they consider all credit hostory. If other loan lenders refuse to offer or give you a loan because of your current credit score, why not apply for a V5 loan? If you own a car and want a loan that considers all applicants, Anglesey V5 document loans could be the perfect solution. With this type of loan, you do not even have to go through the long and arduous processes you’d have with the banks.
I’m currently unemployed, can I get a Logbook Loan?
One of the key requirements to taking out Anglesey loans against your vehicle logbook is that you can prove to the provider that you can afford to make the monthly repayments. This is part of a responsible lending approach that helps ensure you do not default on your payments and risk your vehicle not being returned. Therefore if you are in Carreglefn and unemployed you still need to be able to prove that you can afford the repayments to qualify for the loan.
I’ve got a poor credit score... does that matter?
If you’ve got a bad credit profile and you are looking for Carreglefn loans, you may be able to borrow by using your V5 document as security. Such loans work on the idea that if you have a car, you can use it as collateral to obtain a loan. Because of this, Anglesey residents with bad credit score may still be eligible to secure a loan with V5 lenders, as compared to the more conventional Anglesey loan lenders. Moreover, the loan application process is simple, the necessary requirements are straightforward, and you can often get access to your money on the same day.
What happens if I can’t prove my current income?
Anglesey V5 lenders need to see proof that you can afford the monthly payments so you don’t risk going into arrears or even risk losing your vehicle. Being responsible lenders means only lending to Carreglefn applicants that have the means to prove that they could afford to pay it back. If you think you might have trouble proving your income, then please get in touch to discuss the lending options that might be available to you.
What about car maintenance during the loan?
Although a logbook lender does reserve the right to take possession of your car if you default on your payments, if you are current, you are still the owner of the car. As such, all maintenance remains your responsibility, and this includes MOT checks, insurance, and regular servicing. Your lender will expect normal wear and tear along with additional mileage on the car, but if anything should significantly reduce the car’s value, you will be expected to report that change to the lender as soon as possible.
Are Logbook Loans visible on a HPI check?
A HPI check should clearly show a loan present as a ’Bill of Sale Agreement’. A rule was introduced that requires all Anglesey lenders to register any active loans against a vehicle with companies such as HPI. If for any reason you find that there is an existing loan against your vehicle which was not visible on a HPI search then under the HPI guarantee you are entitled to a reimbursement of up to £30,000.
How long are the repayment terms?
The length of repayment available for car v5 loans includes; 12 months, 18 months and 36 months. These repayment terms offer you adequate time so that you can make budget friendly repayments every month. The interest is charged on a monthly basis and you will not incur extra charges by paying off the loan early. In fact, it’s better to repay in advance, since by doing so, you will end up repaying much less overall in terms of monthly loan interest.
