Frequently Asked Questions
It’s only natural to have a number of questions regarding V5 loans, so we have compiled a series of answers to the more frequently asked questions. Please get in touch to discuss any element of Flitton logbook loans further.
How Logbook Loans work
If you own a car and live in Bedfordshire, you could be eligible to borrow against your vehicle. Your car has value, and the v5 document can let you obtain cash against that value. During the set duration of the procured loan, the car basically acts as the security for the loan given; this means that the lender gets to keep your car’s logbook until you complete repaying the loan. They technically own the car for the entire duration of your loan. This protects the lender should any payments be missed. The lender has the legal right to auction the car to recoup his/her costs.
What ID and documents do I need?
Providing logbook lenders with proof of Bedfordshire residency, income, car ownership, and identity is vital when you enquire for a loan. It only takes a few minutes, and you can do all of this with a handful of documents. Your photo ID, logbook (or V5 document), current MOT, proof of insurance, a utility bill, and a bank statement or copies of payslips will suffice. Bear in mind that some lenders may ask for additional information for verification purposes, too.
Why opt for Flitton Logbook Loans?
Unlike other types of loan, the requirements needed for borrowing against your vehicle are minimal. You simply need to meet a few requirements; that is, you must be of the legal age, and own a car (or have very little finance remaining) which you can offer for collateral. If you meet this criteria and live in Bedfordshire, you are free to apply for this type of loan. So long as you are the car owner, you may be able to obtain the loan even if you’ve a history of default. The amount of money you can borrow normally depends on the value of the car you’re using for security. Also, if you’ve finance on the car already, some Flitton loan lenders might still lend you some money, so long as the car is worth more than what’s owed on it.
Can I qualify for Bedfordshire car logbook loans if I am unemployed?
If you live in Bedfordshire, are unemployed and are looking for a way to secure a personal loan, then you might be eligible to borrow against your car. As long as you own a car that’s registered in your name then you could qualify. However, it’s important to note that all Flitton applicants have different situations, so it’s advisable to get in touch with the logbook lender. Also, as part of responsible lending, the loan applicant has to be able to prove that they can afford to make the loan repayments to avoid extra charges, late repayments and possible repossession of their vehicle.
Does my poor credit score affect my Flitton loan application?
A poor credit score normally means refusal for any other type of Bedfordshire loan, however when looking at these type of loans you may find that it is easier to be accepted even with bad credit history. Using your car as security for the loan means the lender is facing less risk and so they are more likely to lend against your vehicle. You will still undergo a credit check, but the outcome will not always mean refusal. Apply online today to find out!
Is it a problem if I can’t prove my income level?
In order to qualify for Flitton logbook loans you need to be able to prove that you can afford the monthly repayments. Responsible lending means that Bedfordshire V5 lenders will not offer you a loan unless they are certain that repayments can be made. This is to avoid you going in to arrears and risking losing your car. If you can’t prove your income then get in touch today to discuss your options and see if you’re eligible for a V5 document loan.
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 V5 Loans show up on HPI checks?
V5 loans should show up on any HPI checks, and are displayed as a Bill of Sale agreement. However, this isn’t always the case. In case you conduct the HPI check, and follow the purchasing guideline, then you’ll be protected by the HPI guarantee in case it turns out that there’s a V5 loan against the vehicle.
What are the repayment durations?
You can choose to repay your loan in either 12, 18 or 36 month instalments. What’s more there is no penalty for settling your loan early so you could save money on monthly interest payments by repaying your loan sooner.
