Loans are available throughout Bedfordshire and are increasing in popularity with those with bad credit.
When applying, what do I need to provide?
When it comes to enquiring about a loan, lenders often have different requirements, but the basics are the same across the board. You should have access to your photo ID, car insurance policy, current MOT, logbook, bank statements or payslips, and a current utility bill that is in your name. These things provide the lender with proof of your identity, ownership, Bedfordshire residency, and income – and they’ll need it to get you approved.

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.
Will a HPI check show a Loan?
Any loans taken out against the car are normally recorded on a database which is known as the HPI Index where anybody can check for the vehicle’s history prior to purchasing it. When you do a HPI check, you will get to know the vehicle’s true financial history. The HPI check report will also show you the vehicle’s history including; whether the logbook is legitimate, insurance write-off, previous number of owners, previous number plate changes, potential mileage discrepancies, and more.
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.
