Your Questions Answered
Though applying for your Maulden logbook loan is a straightforward procedure, we’re sure that you have a number of questions regarding the process so have compiled a series of answers below to the more common queries.
How do Maulden 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 a V5 Logbook Loan a good idea?
If you are struggling to get approved for a loan in Bedfordshire because you have bad credit, you should consider applying for a V5 document loan. With these type of loans, all credit is considered. Whether you’ve bad credit score due to missed payments or such other defaults, it might not matter; so long as you live in Bedfordshire, own a car or have very little finance you simply need to avail the logbook, and you can obtain a loan quickly.
What about Maulden V5 Loans and unemployment?
It can be difficult for the unemployed to take out any type of loan. As part of a responsible lending approach Bedfordshire logbook lenders need to be satisfied that you can make the payments every month so you minimise any risk of losing ownership of your car. As all situations are different, it is advised that you get in touch via the form on this page to discuss the lending options available to you.
Does a poor credit score mean no loan?
If you have been refused a loan elsewhere in Bedfordshire, a loan secured against your car might be the solution because of the easy application process and simple requirements. Although all Maulden loan applicants are still credit checked, these loans can often be a solution for those with a poor credit score, but own a car which they can use as collateral. As responsible lenders, credit checks have to be undertaken so as to establish whether the loan is affordable. However, people with poor credit scores may still find themselves eligible to borrow.
I can’t prove my current income... does that matter?
Responsible lending entails only lending money to Maulden applicants who can prove that they can afford the monthly repayments. It’s a way of trying to avoid accounts entering into arrears and even the repossession of a vehicle. Maulden v5 logbook loans are only offered to those who can prove that they can make the repayments, so if you have trouble doing so it’s best to get in touch to discuss the best option for your lending 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 my HPI check show any Logbook Loans?
All loans such as Maulden V5 loans should show up on a HPI search as a Bill of Sale Agreement. 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 do I have to repay?
Your loan can be arranged with three different repayment durations... 12, 18 or 36 months. Your interest is charged monthly, and there are no penalties for settling the loan early which means you can save money on the total amount payable.
