How do Bedfordshire Logbook Loans work then?
The premise of borrowing against your car is simple... use your car’s V5 title document as security to lend against the value of your car. In fact you can lend anything up to 80% of the car’s value up to a maximum of £50,000. The application process is simple, and this type of loan is popular among Little Billington residents as they are often accessible to those with poor credit scores as the vehicle is used as security. Once your loan is repaid, you receive your V5 document back and carry on as normal.
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.
Why are Logbook Loans in Little Billington a good idea?
This kind of loan is ideal for Bedfordshire 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.

I’m unemployed... can I get a Logbook Loan?

It’s part of a responsible lending approach that helps ensure you do not default on any loan payments. Therefore if you’re in Bedfordshire and unemployed, but can still prove you can afford the repayments then you may be eligible for a loan.
Does credit score affect loan applications?
If you have a poor credit score then you might have already been refused a loan elsewhere. Though disheartening it shouldn’t put you off applying for Little Billington V5 loans, as using your car as security for the loan often means a more relaxed acceptance level. Your credit history will still be checked, but as long as you live in Bedfordshire and own the car outright (or with minimal finance left) then you have a good chance of being able to borrow against it’s value.
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 Little Billington applicants that have the means to prove that they could afford to pay it back.

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 my HPI check show any Logbook Loans?

A ruling was introduced that requires Bedfordshire lenders to register every loan with companies such as HPI. If for any reason you find there to be a loan against your vehicle which did not show up on a HPI search, then you will be entitled to up to £30,000 according to the HPI guarantee.
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.
