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 Parciau applicants.
How do they work?
Quite simply the way Parciau Logbook Loans work is that you use your car as security in order to receive a loan against the value of it. In order to receive the loan you need to own the car yourself (or have very little finance on it) then hand over the V5 document in exchange for an agreed amount of up to 80% of the car’s value. You can carry on driving your car throughout the loan period, and once repaid your V5 document is returned to you. They are particularly popular in Anglesey as they can often be available to residents with poor credit scores.
What documents do I need to apply?
When you enquire about a loan, lenders do their best to not only prevent fraud, but also to reduce risk. For this reason, you will need several different documents. Your government-issued ID, a copy of your logbook, proof of insurance, a utility bill for proof of Anglesey residency, a current MOT, and proof of income are all requirements when you enquire. Make sure you have the most recent versions of these for the best chances of being approved.
Why are Logbook Loans in Parciau a good idea?
This kind of loan is ideal for Anglesey residents who have bad credit score and have no other form of finance available to them. Regardless of how bad or poor your credit score history, there could be less chance of getting rejected. You simply need to meet the requirements, especially pertaining ownership of the car, and you could be approved for the loan. Your credit history might not be a negative factor when issuing the approval for your loan application. Generally, approval for lending against your Parciau vehicle mainly depends on the make or model of the car that you’re using as security. You can even get money on the same day!.
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 Parciau and unemployed you still need to be able to prove that you can afford the repayments to qualify for the loan.
I have a poor credit score... can I get a loan?
Quite possibly yes! In fact Anglesey lenders could be more accepting of those with less than desirable credit scores as your car’s V5 document is retained as security making it a lower risk loan for the lender. It’s important to realise that all Parciau applicants are still credit checked, but may find this type of loan more accepting than others.
I can’t prove my income, is that a problem?
Parciau V5 logbook loans can be advantageous for borrowers with poor or little credit history. Being unemployed, self employed, having arrears, CCJs, or bankruptcies can make one a bad credit borrower, and the traditional Anglesey lending institutions will most probably refuse your loan application due to the high risk associated. With a loan against your car, you might still qualify even if you have poor credit so long as you can prove you’re able to make the repayments in a timely manner. Responsible lending is designed to help prevent the risk of you losing ownership of your car. Since different people have different circumstances, it’s advisable to to get in contact to discuss your particular situation.
Who should maintain the car during the loan?
Lenders ask you to provide proof of insurance at the time you enquire for a loan because they want to mitigate their risk in lending by making sure you’re covered in the event something should happen to your collateral while it is still in your possession. Along those same lines, lenders will expect that you have regular MOT checks and that you have your car serviced regularly throughout the loan period. This helps to maintain the car’s value, which is the lenders biggest interest. If for any reason your car’s value should depreciate significantly, you should immediately notify your lender of the circumstances.
Do Logbook Loans show on a HPI check?
Yes. It is a requirement for all Anglesey lenders to register each and every loan via companies such as HPI. In the unlikely event that you discover your new car to have a loan attached to it that didn’t show up on a HPI check then you will be eligible for up to £30,000 reimbursement in accordance with the HPI guarantee.
What is the repayment duration?
Your loan can be arranged with either a 12, 18 or 36 month duration and since there are no penalties for early repayment you can save money on interest payments by settling the account early.
