In order to ensure you are as informed as possible when enquiring about your Llanfwrog logbook loan we have listed some answers to FAQs received below. If you have any more please get in touch using the form.
So how does a Logbook Loan work?
A loan against your car, or V5 loan is a very straightforward way to lend money, especially for Anglesey residents who have had more traditional loan applications refused. Quite simply, you use your car’s V5 document as security to lend money against the value of your car. Anything up to 80% of the current market value can be borrowed, and repayments can be spread over 12, 18 or 36 months. What’s more, you can continue to drive your vehicle throughout the loan period, and upon completion your V5 document is returned.
What should I supply on application?
Before you can proceed to enquire about a loan, you’ll first need to make sure you have all the proper documentation. You’ll need your logbook, or V5, which should be in your name, along with a current MOT and proof of insurance for the vehicle you want to use as security. You should bring a government-issued photo ID card, a recent utility bill as proof of Anglesey residency, and some form of income validation that proves your ability to repay your obligation.
Are V5 Logbook Loans a good idea?
Absolutely, especially if you have had a loan refused elsewhere due to a poor credit history/score. As your car is used as security you may find that Anglesey logbook lenders are more willing to lend money where other lenders might pass, which is why they are so popular throughout Llanfwrog. So long as you meet the loan criteria then you could be lending up to 80% of your car’s value very quickly indeed.
Unemployed but want a Logbook Loan... is this possible?
Llanfwrog residents that find themselves unemployed but still want to take out a loan gainst there vehicle have to meet certain criteria in order to be successful. For instance you have to prove that the monthly loan repayments are affordable in order to avoid arrears and the possible loss of your car. Responsible Anglesey lenders won’t grant loans to those who cannot afford the repayments. To find out more simply get in touch today!
Does poor credit history affect Anglesey applicants?
Actually a V5 loan is one of the more tolerant loans when it comes to bad credit, and Anglesey residents are finding them very popular. As your car is used as security it makes the loan lower risk to the lender so they are more likely to agree to the loan. You will still have your credit checked, but the outcome is normally more positive than if you had tried for a loan elsewhere.
What if I can’t prove my income?
Those who are self employed or have little/poor credit history in Anglesey can benefit from the V5 loans; they simply need to prove that they are able to make the repayments. As part of responsible lending, it’s important for Llanfwrog V5 loan applicants to prove that they have the ability to make timely repayments so as to avoid losing possession of their car. Since different people have different situations, it is important to get in contact to discuss your particular needs.
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.
Will a V5 Loan show up on a HPI check?
Logbook loans should show up on a HPI check. They show up as a Bill of Sale agreement, and it’s a requirement for Anglesey lending companies to register them with companies like HPI. Nowadays, it’s very important to perform a thorough check on the car’s history. If you do a HPI check and a loan taken against the vehicle doesn’t show up, and you buy the vehicle, then you’re protected by the HPI guarantee which provides you with a financial reimbursement of up to £30,000.
How long do I have to repay?
Your loan repayments can be arranged over 12, 18 or even 36 months. There are no penalties if you wish to settle the account sooner, in fact it is encouraged as interest is charged monthly so you can save yourself money by paying your loan off sooner.
