Billington V5 Logbook Loan FAQs
It’s only right that you have all the information you need before proceeding with your Billington logbook loan application. Here are a list of answers to the more frequently asked questions we receive:
How do Billington Logbook Loans work?
The way Bedfordshire loans against cars work is you use your car as security for getting a loan. The only thing you need to hand over is the logbook (also known as V5 document) of your vehicle. The logbook is held by the lender as collateral, and you get to keep and use your vehicle throughout the agreement. The document is then returned to you when you finish repaying the loan. Loans are available throughout Bedfordshire and are increasing in popularity with those with bad credit.
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 Bedfordshire 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.
What makes Billington Logbook Loans a good idea?
There are numerous benefits to taking out a loan against your vehicle, but perhaps the main benefit that attracts many Bedfordshire applicants is that people with less than perfect credit scores can still be eligible to borrow money as their vehicle is used as security.

Can I get a Logbook Loan if I am unemployed?
If you have tried to apply for Bedfordshire personal loans at the mainstream sources like banks, and you have been refused you should consider applying with a logbook lender. Even if you are unemployed, you will still be considered. Billington Logbook lenders are interested in your current ability to repay the loan, which means even if you have a bad credit history and you are not employed, you might still qualify. You simply need to prove that you can afford the repayments so as to avoid extra charges, delays, and the possible repossession of your car.
Can I Get a Loan With a Poor Credit Score?
Taking out a loan when you’ve bad credit score is tough for many Billington borrowers. Because of the poor credit score, major loan lenders like banks are less likely to approve your loan application. Bedfordshire lenders might be able to provide a more accessible option despite the bad credit. Although you will still have to undergo a credit check, V5 lenders can be more tolerant to bad credit scores; as responsible Bedfordshire lenders, they will have to assess the loan applicant’s ability to repay the loan, and their vehicle’s value to ensure that the loan can be guaranteed.
What happens if I can’t prove my current income?
Bedfordshire 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 Billington 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.
Who should maintain the car?
When you agree to a loan, you also agree that you will continue to maintain the car while it is in your possession. This maintenance should include regular servicing, maintaining insurance at all times, and necessary MOT checks. Some normal wear and tear, along with additional mileage, is to be expected, but you should maintain your car to the same value it had when you took the loan. This means that if significant damage or mechanical failure should occur and reduce the value of your car, you should notify your lender right away.
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 Bedfordshire 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.
