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 will I need to apply?
You’ll need to provide several forms of documentation before you can successfully enquire about a loan. Of course, the most important of these are your valid photo identification and your V5 documents, or logbook, as these will prove that you are the rightful owner of the car you want to use as security. You should also bring a current MOT, proof of insurance, and a copy of your most recent utility bill (in your name) to prove your Bedfordshire residency, along with payslips or bank statements that show your income.
Why might a Logbook Loan be a good idea?
If you live in Westoning, have bad credit history, have been refused a loan elsewhere or simply need some fast money to spend on whatever you like then getting a loan against your V5 document can be a good idea. Using your car as security makes this type of loan more accessible to Bedfordshire residents with poor credit scores which is why they are so popular nowadays. So long as you can afford the repayments then they could be the answer to your lending needs.
Can unemployed persons secure a Logbook Loan?
To be eligible for Westoning loans against cars, you need to own a vehicle that’s registered in your name (or very nearly own it on finance). A perfect credit history and full employment status are not always a strict requirement, however, you must be able to provide proof that you will be able to make the repayments on your Bedfordshire loan, without delays. It’s part of a responsible lending culture amongst lenders.
What about Bedfordshire residents with poor credit scores?
If you have a poor credit score and you need to borrow, a loan secured against your vehicle might well be a solution. The logbook loan procedure is usually very straightforward, and you can often get the money on the same day. Although you will still have to undergo a credit check, due to the security of your car as collateral you may find it easier to be accepted. When taking out the loan against your vehicle, your Bedfordshire loan lender will need you to hand over the vehicle’s V5 document or logbook, alongside some other requirements like Westoning billing address, proof of identification, MOT certificate and proof of income.
I have no proof of income, can I still borrow?
If you own a car that’s registered in your name you might still be able to get a logbook loan, however you need to prove that you’ll be able to afford to make the repayments. As part of responsible lending, Westoning v5 lenders have to ascertain that you will be able to make the payments as needed, so that you do not end up losing possession of your car. You should get in contact to discuss your particular situation. Fill in the above form to hear directly from an advisor who will take you through the available options.
Who is responsible for general car maintenance?
Although the loan is secured with your car, you get to keep your car throughout the duration of the loan as long as you make the payments on time as agreed. Because the car stays in your possession, it also stays under your car. You will be required to have regular MOT checks, to have the car serviced, and to maintain insurance on the car at all times. If you do not, or if anything should affect the car’s value (other than normal mileage and wear and tear), then you should contact your lender.
Do HPI checks show Logbook Loans on them?
All HPI checks should show loans against the vehicle on them as a ’Bill of Sale’ agreement as Bedfordshire lenders are required to register them with companies such as HPI. If you have carried out a HPI check and later find that there is a loan attached to your new vehicle then you are covered by a HPI guarantee which will reimburse you up to a maximum of £30,000.
What is the repayment duration?
Your loan can be arranged with either a 12, 18 or 36 month duration and since there are no penalties for early repayment you can save money on interest payments by settling the account early.
